The Come Up Show is a multi-media presentation of hip hop culture, broadcast online at TheComeUpShow.com as well as 94.9FM in London, Ontario. It’s new, it’s clear-cut, it’s authentic, it’s where that feel good music lives, real recognizes real.
Dedicated to playing the latest and greatest in Canadian hip hop and providing fresh, cutting edge programming, The Come-Up Show supports hip hop culture in various forms:
There’s the weekly radio broadcast (Saturday 6-8pm), here’s where you’ll get live commentary on events and news as well as in-depth, hard-hitting interviews with many local artists striving for more exposure.
We also present video interviews with some of the industry’s biggest players (Raekwon, J Cole, Melanie Fiona, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, etc). These interviews are dynamic and anything but typical as Chedo conducts intense research and asks the questions others don’t.
All of this content is available on the TheComeUpShow.com, which acts as the third pillar of this multi-media operation. TheComeUpShow.com is now a go-to blog for news, interviews and commentary on hip hop culture in Canada and abroad and houses all related content. In just a few years, The Come Up Show has become an undeniably influential programming brand. With a visionary and leader in Adulis “Chedo” Mokanan and a strong team of writers, videographers, and photographers, the future looks bright.
This all started in 2007, when Chedo took action on his life long dream of running a radio show. Beginning his journey in the early hours of the morning (2am-6am), he worked on overcoming his nerves and organizing his content and ideas into a fluid, entertaining radio show. He’d dreamed of hosting a radio show since he arrived in Canada in 1996 and fell in love with hip-hop. And soon he’d have the chance to talk to even more listeners, as The Come Up Show moved to Monday afternoons. This meant more exposure, more opportunity, and more leverage. The guests started rolling in and the show’s credibility was building.
Since then, Chedo’s interviewed countless artists, developed an attractive website, secured a prime-time radio slot and built his team. No longer is this a one man operation. With dedicated bloggers, TheComeUpShow.com is a current, relevant destination for news and music. Several videographers and photographers from both Toronto and London keep programming clean and crisp. And Chedo continues his tireless work hosting, coordinating and researching.
It’s with genuine enthusiasm and passion that The Come Up Show presents its take on hip hop culture. We are your guide. We are your filter. We are your trusted destination for that feel good music. Whatever your specific hip hop inclination, authenticity is often the common denominator. And The Come Up Show, in all its facets is unequivocally authentic. Authentic in its purpose, authentic in its passion, authentic in its preparation, authentic in its presentation – The Come Up Show will help you live the culture you love.
