Hip-Hop Concert Succeeds In Denver Despite Doubt

Ricardo Baca of the Denver Post about hip-hop radio station KQKS-FM’s annual ‘KS107.5 Summer Jam’ that has surprised some in it’s sell-out attendance in a heavily white area of the country. Cat Collins, program director at KQKS said, “When I got here in ’98, I was talking about doing this summer show, and a very influential promoter looked at me and smirked and said, “You’re not going to do an urban show in Denver.'” Collins added, “The people who assume black artists make black music for black people aren’t educated, they aren’t hip, they aren’t cool, and they must not watch MTV. Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll lives on in rap.”
