The big urban hip-hop station from the big D with the mention in Eminem's 8 Mile lost its tricked-out red Dodge Magnum last month, but Detroit 5-0 were able to come through with both the ride and a suspect. Although the ride was stripped, WJLB was thankful for the law's help — but was pretty strong with both their songs and with their disgust for the suspect. The station promotions director had the following statement:
"That is the problem we have with it...the station in general does so much for the community. Why would you steal from us?"
That's an excellent question — but no matter how much a radio station "gives to a community" we somehow doubt it's worth more than the $68,000 this pimped-out ride was worth.
