Greg Street Certified

ATLANTA, GA -- Perennial radio personality and hip hop hit-breaker Greg Street is primed for the release of “Greg Street Certified Worldwide,” his long-anticipated compilation for Interscope Records. The compilation’s first single is the upbeat, feel-good track “Good Day,” featuring Nappy Roots which is currently airing on BET’s “106 and Park,” features Street with a classroom of singing school children interspersed with scenes of members of Nappy Roots. The compilation also features appearances from Lil Wayne, Game, Soulja Boy, Kardinal, Rich Boy, Wale and more.

Street says he’ll promote the compilation, which is primarily geared towards the south and the Midwest, through a series of specialized promotions and events including a “Good Day” cookout tour. “I want to plan a giant cookout for the listeners of radio stations in different cities and invite their families out. I want mothers, grandmothers and kids to come out and have a good time,” he says. “The food and the beverages will be free. Then at night we’ll do a party so we’ll touch on both levels of what’s going on: the family thing and the party thing.”

Known for coining the phrase “It’s 6 o’clock, it’s 6 o’clock, time for Greg Street to rock,” Greg Street has been a mainstay at hip hop radio, spending the last 14 years at Atlanta radio station V103, where he currently holds down the 6-10 time slot. His show continues to boast the #1 rated Arbitron spot in all demographics. The Hattiesburg, Mississippi native is also at work on several other projects, including a documentary entitled “How We Did It: The Movie,” which features several hip-hop notables sharing the secrets to their success.
