Salute to Funkmaster Flex for inviting STAR on his show and reconnecting on the NYC airwaves. This was a great moment for Hip-Hop and a chance for everyone to move forward. In March of 2000 the Star & Buc Wild morning show launched on HOT97 in NYC. In 2004, after three years of successful ratings and impact, STAR and HOT97 could not reach an agreement about syndication and salary so STAR left and signed on with Power 105.1 via Clear Channel.
