In an era where nostalgia blends seamlessly with the pulse of modernity, Keith Perrin, co-founder of the iconic apparel brand FUBU (“For Us, By Us”), has once again positioned himself at the forefront of a cultural renaissance. As the CEO and General Manager of FUBU Radio, Perrin has embarked on a mission to not just revisit but revitalize urban lifestyle through music and dialogue that resonates with both past and future generations.

FUBU Radio, launched on December 24, 2015, emerges as a testament to Perrin’s vision of creating a platform that bridges the gap between the golden age of hip hop and R&B and today’s evolving societal narratives. The station is more than a collection of tracks; it’s a celebration of urban life, culture, and community that echoes FUBU’s original ethos. “Promoting the Best of Our Past while celebrating the possibilities of our future,” as Perrin succinctly puts it, encapsulates the essence of what FUBU Radio aims to achieve.

Keith Perrin’ dissatisfaction with contemporary radio programming spurred him towards establishing FUBU Radio with his partner Demetrius Brown. Tired of repetitive playlists that seemed disconnected from the rich tapestry of urban musical history, he sought to curate an experience that would resonate more profoundly with listeners yearning for diversity. Today, FUBU Radio prides itself on featuring an impeccable selection ranging from the best Hip-Hop and R&B classics from 1990-Present

The station also boasts an impressive lineup of mixes from some of the country’s hottest DJs, offering fresh takes on beloved classics and introducing audiences to future favorites. This innovative approach not only entertains but educates listeners about the genre’s evolution, ensuring that the legacy of urban music continues to thrive in contemporary settings.

Perrin’s journey into entrepreneurship was shaped significantly by his upbringing in Queens, New York. Raised by a single mother who instilled in him values such as hard work and determination from an early age, he ventured into New York’s real estate market before making his mark in fashion with FUBU alongside partners Daymond John (Shark Tank), Carl Brown, and J. Alexander Martin. Their collective efforts transformed how young multicultural entrepreneurs were perceived across America.

Their strategy extended beyond fashion; it was about embedding FUBU within urban culture through strategic placements in music videos, photo shoots, concerts, TV appearances,and movies – fostering relationships with artists and celebrities that became instrumental in defining brand identity.

Beyond his business acumen lies Keith Perrin’s commitment to community engagement and wellness advocacy. His efforts extend into speaking engagements across various platforms – from educational institutions to corporate environments – emphasizing healthy lifestyles and mental well-being among youth.

Recently honored with a Doctorate Degree at Harvest Christian University’s Fall 2023 Commencement Masterclass (St Louis Edition), Perrin’s influence transcends entrepreneurial success; it reflects a dedication to uplifting communities through mentorship and philanthropy.

FUBU Radio stands out not merely as another digital station but as an embodiment of cultural preservation and innovation under Keith Perrin’s stewardship. It represents a confluence where memories meet ambition—a space where listeners are invited to celebrate urban culture’s vibrancy while envisioning its boundless potentialities.
