Remember, this 'format' is aimed at a new generation of 'old school' who grew up listening to CHR radio when hip hop and rap became 'acceptable'
It's an easy format to produce, just throw up all the hits from 1994 to about 2005, people who were 15 back then are now 30 plus, people who were 15 at the 2K point are now on the lower end of the demo they're going after.
It makes sense and was bound to happen here, especially when you take into consideration how big B was at that time as they morphed into hip hop crossover.
Take some Jay-Z, toss in TLC, Luda, Nelly, Juvenile, Montell, LL and stay away from most of the stuff pre-92 and you've got a cume grabber for a good two years.
They'll show a nice pop for three quarters, after that, they'll have some 'splainin' to do.
I could be wrong, but I doubt it
