CoCo Brother is stepping away from his Atlanta-based syndicated evening radio show “Spirit of Hip Hop,” heard locally on Praise 102.5.

He said he has struggled the past 18 months whether to leave or not. He finally pulled the trigger last week May 22. “I cleaned my office out a month ago,” he said in an exclusive interview.

CoCo (real name: Cory Condrey) wrote a resignation note, which included this: “If you are wondering, I will continue to do radio, but I feel like I need to spread my wings in order to grow at the level that I’m being called to.”

He said he plans to return to radio after the summer but “not in the capacity I have been in.”
