Jan. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- Urban Indie Radio Los Angeles will be featuring the artist ‘Rosevelt” west coast emcee, producer, and dubbed by some as a “musical activist”. Rosevelt was one of the leader-organizers of the infamous 2009 Black Fridai Boycott in which 200 West Coast hip hop artists, fans, producers, & listeners BOYCOTTED & PROTESTED outside of LA’s popular radio station “POWER 106″ for their lack of support for West Coast Hip-hop and the artists who work hard to preserve the culture.

In 2009, Rosevelt along with partner in rhyme C-Nice started the controversial Black Fridai movement which addressed Power 106′s lack of support for West Coast artists, they felt artists like Nipsey Hussle, Glasses Malone, Kendrick Lamar, Problem and plenty others deserved to have a stronger presence on the station instead of the “Techno hop” that flooded Power’s playlists. On Nov 27th, 2009 the Black Fridai movement boycotted Power 106 and protested right on their front yard, hundreds of hip hop fans, supporters, artists, bloggers, etc… marched through the streets of Burbank demanding change.

Rosevelt caught the attention of Capitol Records A&R Jamie Feldmon, and was brought in to meet with the VP of A&R (Urban) Darius Jones. “I just remember not having any expectations, I didn’t want to get too excited and take the first offer they threw out there,” Rosevelt decided to pass on Capitol and continue to build his resume on the West Coast hip hop scene. Rosevelt immediately hit the show circuit and has shared the stage with everyone from Glasses Malone, Sly Boogy, Maino, Too Short, Noa James, Willie B and others.

Rosevelt joins Drew Pillow in the Celebrity Spotlight @ Urban Indie Radio Los Angeles 1/24/2013 @ 8pm PST and Encore 1/26/2013 @ 8pm PST.
