Its 6 O'Clock!! Time for Greg Street to Rock!! As one of the most recognizable voices in radio and the man behind the phrase “its 6 o’clock, its 6 o’clock, time for Greg Street to Rock,” Greg Street is the true voice of the people. Having first began his career at WORV-WJMG located in his hometown of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he was known as Gregory K.P., he quickly advanced as a well-known and respected DJ. Seeking out opportunities to become more hands on he would later move to WHSY and begin the task of working nightclubs and parties all while creating, producing, and distributing his own Gregory K.P. mix tapes.
Continuing with his deep love and passion for radio would eventually take Greg Street from Mississippi to Alabama’s WBLX 93 BLX and then Magic 102/KMJQ in Houston, where he became MC Greg Street, to finally landing in Atlanta at V103. He became a fast sensation known for his ability to mix and bring a new and fresh outlook to music. After a little over 6 years at V103, Street would take up an offer from the
Dallas Market and head back to K-104. Unwilling to totally leave what he has built in the Atlanta market, Greg Street continued to work with V103 through a 6 o’clock slot on Saturday, that brought him from Dallas to Atlanta every weekend. Now less than 5 years later he is the man synonymous with the Atlanta radio movement and nightlife, making Atlanta the true home for Greg Street. As a music industry veteran, who takes his job seriously and offers opportunity to new artist, Greg Street has had an active hand in breaking some of today’s biggest artist in Hip Hop and R&B. In the past Street has won numerous awards and worthwhile recognitions that include: two nominations for Billboard’s Major Market Personality of the Year, NBPC Major Market Personality of the Year in 1997 and 1999, and he successfully became the first recipient of the Think B.I.G. Heart Award from the Christopher “Notorious B.I.G. Wallace Memorial Foundation.
Besides his accomplishments and awards in radio, Greg Street is also active in a number of charities, events, and foundations. As someone who recognizes his stardom as away to influence others, this activist for the people, has had the honor of partnering with Mayor Shirley Franklin’s organization to help benefit Atlanta’s youth. Taking on the role of mentor by actively speaking to children about the importance of staying in school and away from drugs, he has occasionally enlisted the help of a number of celebrity friends, making him instrumental in bringing a number of well-known artists to speaking engagements for children. This type of work has lead Greg Street to create the
Street Academy/Operation Correct Start, which focuses on teaching young boys how to become men and to avoid negative situations of the streets.
