- August 16, 2003
- Just a few years ago, Lawrence was a rock town. Period. Sure, there were those with hip-hop visions, but they weren’t to be found on flyers nor on stage. Not yet. As late as the mid ‘90s, one of the few hints of the coming hip-hop hype was a Saturday night show on the student radio station, KJHK 90.7. The summer of ‘98 brought “Breakfast for Beatlovers,” a five-day-a-week forum that allowed a scattered hip-hop community to coalesce on-air.
