MNRK Music Group’s emerging stars – Austin Sour, Nym Lo, Courtney Bell, and Black Soprano Family – will team up with NYC’s home for Hip-Hop, HOT 97, as their flagship “Who’s Next” showcase returns to the esteemed venue Blue Midtown on February 28th. This year the showcase is centered around “Creating Hip-Hop Stars for the Next 50 Years,” celebrating Hip-Hop’s 50th Anniversary.
For years, HOT 97’s series of “Who’s Next” showcases have created a community of emerging artists, providing them with resources, exposure, and opportunities to advance their careers. The showcases are renowned as a rite of passage for major artists from New York and beyond. Cardi B, The Weeknd, Drake, and Megan Thee Stallion are among those who have performed on the showcase stage at early points in their respective careers.
“’Who’s Next’ is a pivotal part of who we are at Hot 97,” said Hot 97 VP of Artist & Label Relations TT Torrez. “Offering a platform for new artists to showcase their talent and find new fans is core to what we represent: On the 50th year Anniversary of Hip Hop we as HOT 97 continue to have a strong respect for and commitment to hip-hop music. Hot 97’s Who’s next is all about building the stars for the next 50 years!
Ebrahim “Abe” Rasheed, MNRK’s SVP of Urban, says, “MNRK Urban is thrilled to partner with Hot 97 to bring the incredible talent of our bright, young, new roster to fans.”
