TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Top 40 KFFM (107.3)/YAKIMA, WA, morning show co-hosts REESHA COSBY and partner RIGGS are spearheading a campaign to give up the music of ST. LOUIS rapper CHINGY for LENT.
COSBY, co-host of the station's "RIGGS-REESHA In The Morning" show, insists, "We love rapper CHINGY's music. However, it's LENT, which is when you are supposed to give up something you like, love, or feel tempted by, for 40 days.
CHINGY's most well-known songs include "Right Thurr," "Balla Baby," "One Call Away" and "Pulling Me Back."
"As much as we want to, we cannot play CHINGY's music during LENT," added RIGGS. "We will restrain ourselves -- wait, I barely remember him, what is the point, is this supposed to be a sacrifice? We haven’t played CHINGY in years!"
"Chill out, man, I know what I’m doing. We are showing solidarity with those listeners who have chosen to give up something for LENT, withertofore, we, RIGGS + REESHA are giving up CHINGY's music for 40 days (or more)," responded REESHA.
In a final show of commitment to LENT, RIGGS + REESHA vow not to play any more CHINGY songs on the radio, at least not until after MARCH 21st, when LENT ends.
