C’mon son! The tri-state’s airwaves will no longer feature an icon of Hip Hop.Through television and radio, Queens, New York’s Ed Lover (born James Roberts) has been a Hip Hop icon. Also working as an actor for nearly 20 years, Lover’s knowledge and care for the culture has been apparent from his years hosting Yo! MTV Raps with partner Dr. Dré and working at radio since 1993.

Lover’s latest post at New York’s Power 105 (105.1 FM) has reportedly ended as of yesterday.
