About Late Nite BBQ
The Late Nite BBQ first aired in 2001 with Semp Rok, Ruin, and DJ Omega. What started as friends with a mutual love for Hip Hop led to an award-winner radio show in Miami, FL, on WRGP 88.1 FM. The crew soon grew with members DJ Trees and Paper, who added their unique flavor and technical skills to the show. By 2005, the crew branched out, and the show was over. In 2018, the show was resurrected on Vibe 92.7 FM every Friday night at 2 am. This time Semp Rok was joined by DJ Opal and a weekly cast of guest DJs rocking throwback indie boom bap. The remains strong on Vibe 92.5 FM with a new show on the horizon to showcase new hip hop tracks of the current era.
