Leave it to online radio host DJ Baker to get one of the most memorable interviews from our Black LGBT personalities.
Because I am not living in the New York/New Jersey area, I became familiar with singer/socialite Metrell Hurst through a couple of features on ADTV and his duet with Damien Crawford titled “I Can Be.” Though the aforementioned events took place this year, I learned that Hurst is an extremely popular personality in that region. Why wouldn’t he be so popular? He possesses great looks, a Southern charm and a singing voice that will make you throw your most expensive bikini brief at him.
Don’t act like you wouldn’t.

Of the sort, Hurst shares intimate life experiences with Baker in this exclusive interview such as surviving child abandonment and physical abuse.
Though the details of Metrell’s dark past before serving in the US Navy and graduating from college was a good story from this New York singer, Baker got Hurst to expose his thoughts on popular personalities ballroom legend Pony Zion, porn star Hot Rod and ADTV personality Derrick L.

Hurst gets very descriptive here.
Like any of us smart gays know, Hurst called out porn star Hot Rod over lying about his
Miracle Gro booty not getting implants.
If you know Baker’s style of interviewing as well I know it, you would fortell that DJ would ask Hurst about any sexual advances by Derrick L. Briggs while being a seasonal co-star on ADTV. Urban legend has it that the main activity behind Briggs’ popular ADTV network is that Briggs sleeps with his rotation of talents as an unspoken prerequisite to be a fixtures on an ADTV series. Some of the former ADTV personalities have come forward to confirm that rumor, but Briggs plays it off. Though Hurst let his hair down throughout the interview on every topic discussed, he hesitated before deciding to remain silent on that topic. In other words,…
