Hot 97 hosted another of their monthly “Who’s Next” showcases earlier this week at the the legendary, SOB’s. Emceed by Shani Kulture, “Who’s Next” has become an industry staple that spotlights up and coming talent. This past Monday, TT Torrez’s industry soiree put the spotlight on Jacquees, PM, Jay Watts, Finesse and more. It was also announced that “Who’s Next” is now officially a co-joint effort with Tune Core – as their logo was shown on the stage’s backdrop throughout the night.
Kicking the night off was lady lyricist, Finesse from the Bronx – who was handpicked by the fans to showcase her talent on the famed stage. Her aggressive delivery was characteristic of most rappers from the birthplace of Hip Hop. With it, she performed a mix of soon-to-be club hits. Next to hit the stage was Marvin Dolo. Despite being a one-man show, Marvin’s energy never dwindled – he had the crowd lit throughout his entire set. PM and Elijah The Boy also followed suit, and put on impressive performances.
As the night carried on, the mood changed a bit as Matt Patterson and Jay Watts took to the stage with their R&B filled sets. Both had their own unique style and sound that represent the versatility of the soulful genre. Finally, closing out the show was headliner, Jacquees. Fresh off the release of his single, “Everything” featuring Snoop Dogg, Jacquees showed us why he’s next. From his dance moves, to his electrifying set that was complimented by two back up dancers, and his make-you-wanna-groove tunes, it was the perfect way to end the night.
