In 2009 MTVJams shined it's light on the Bay Area's diverse hip hop scene, they dedicated an entire day of programming to Bay Area interviews and videos. Bay Day became the #1 trending topic on Twitter and it's success paved the way for days dedicated to Texas, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Louisiana.

Bay Day's Creators; MTV's Tuma Basa, Giovani Hidalgo, Seaside Stretch, Rock Jacobs & Will Bronson have been working since Bay Day's success on bringing MTVJams back to where it all started.
