Default New Hip-Hop Host

Looks like Sirius is putting some more into Hot Jamz. This is from allhiphop.com

"Hip-Hop video model/television personality and actress Melyssa Ford has joined Sirius Satellite Radio as an on-air host. Ford will be a host on Sirius' commercial free R&B/Hip-Hop station, Hot Jamz, channel 50. Ford's first day on the air starts Monday, Jan. 15 and her show will air from 12-6 pm EST. Ford has graced the pages of magazines like XXL, Maxim and Black Men's Magazine. She has also been featured in videos by Jay-Z, Mystikal, Jadakiss, R. Kelly and others."

That's really cool - I'm glad hip-hop is still getting better! I wonder what's gonna happen to Hollywood, not that I really know anything about his show. In any case, Hot Jamz is really starting to shape up. Considering that it's the closest thing on Sirius to FM rap radio, it's good to see some more effort put into it. The mixes are top-quality already... It's one of the only places where you can hear consistent mixing and beat-matching on mixshows on Sirius hip-hop.

Have you seen this girl? I didn't know who she was so I looked her up. Definitely the kind of girl you want around. She's gorgeous. The type of girl who makes it into a party, meets the CEO talks them into giving her a job.

She's a fellow Canadian, I think. She was on BET for a bit. Yeah, she kind of makes me think that Sirius Video cannot come quickly enough.

Yo, you hear this lady today? She sounded real hot and real comfortable on the air. I think she'll be all right.

Can't say the same for the Lip Service girls. Those ladies probably don't belong on the radio.

That's so weird, because I have the exact opposite opinion. I listened to Melyssa today for a bit, and i found her stiff and rehearsed (compared to someone like Amanda Diva who is personable and relaxed).

In terms of Lip Service, I thought this week was an improvement on last week's show! The Pillow Talk segment was excellent. It definately didn't alienate me, and it kept me interested. I think Angela is a great host, and Leah will come around, though I still think she sounds more comfortable with Clinton Sparks.

Geo, you really don't think Angela Yee belongs on the radio? Or were you talking about the Pillow Talk girls?

I shouldn't say someone belongs or doesn't belong on the radio after only hearing about a minute or two of each. I heard Ford for a single short segment and I don't know, her voice was inviting and cool to me.

I caught some Lip Service shortly after that, and I can't say I know who's who, but one of those gals seemed really cheesy. I mean, they were asking women to call in and tell stories of how they keep highly paid athletes and stars interested with their bedroom techniques. Blech!

I need to give them more both time perhaps, but at first blush Ford said a few words and played music, the lip girls just had a lame idea.

Geo, do you ever listen to The Cipha Sounds Effect? Do you like Angela on that show, or do you just not like Angela. I think your assessment is fair...it's posssible that some of their topics may tend to straddle the "cheesy fence" (I only heard half the show). I guess I also only heard a "bad" segment of Melyssa Ford.

I think we need to give them both more time. I have no problem with Angela Yee. I never really thought about it. I listen to the Stern Show and that show's regulars are just the best in the business. Everyone else just kinda sounds average after them. I dunno.

I'll listen some more.

I'm a Stern fan myself. Until this summer, I used to listen exclusively to Angela and Cipha in the mornings, so I would miss the Stern show. Now, I sleep through the mornings (my first classes start after 2), and i listen to Stenr before I go to sleep. I am definately addicted. That being said, I think the chemistry of Angela and Cipha is great. When Cipha contributes (sometimes he doesn't talk too much) and gets excited (especially during interviews), I think the show is hilarious, in a different type of way.

Do you like Jude and Sear better?

Yea you know, I don't get Cipha sounds in the morning short of Howard going to commercial on both channels in the morning which is rare. I'll pop on Shade or HHN for a quick song until Howard comes back. I haven't heard enough.

I catch rude jude and lord sear at work and love their Shady 5 segments. Jude is fine, and sear is cool. I get the drunk mix on fridays which I like a lot, usually cuz I'm knocking a few cold ones back. Puts me in the mood.

Yeah, Shady 5 is crazy. I love when they dis Sample Wednesdays... They don't do that too much anymore.

I dunno, I don't listen to Cipha and Angela as much as i would like to, due to my schedule. I really think they're hilarious though.

You like Kay Slay? I used to think his show was average...Now I like it a lot. he talks a lot of shit

I totally agree sample wednsday was always great, i wish they would bring that back.


And on a side note I enjoyed this weeks episode of Lip Service as well a little gay in parts sometimes but all in all it was good Anjela is the shit.

Kay Slay's show is pretty good. I'm really liking Tony Toca on Tuesday night, Denali, and the West Coast cat Smallz on Friday on HHN.
