This showcase was different from past showcases, which are usually dominated by hip-hop performances with a sprinkle of R&B here and there. The vibes in the air were extremely supportive and eager for what was next to hit the stage.
International artist and producer Ti Do Blind started the show by getting everyone’s head nodding to his trap banger “Ti chimen”, meaning “small path”. Even though the song was completely in Creole, the room still felt his emotion and loved the way he flowed over the beat.
There were also other artists who had the speakers knocking, such as Atlanta rapper Seti, with his single “10” and King J, who got the whole crowd involved in his extremely entertaining performance of his unreleased single, "Sauce Dripping On Tha’ Left Side."
The ladies were definitely in the building and representing as well. Jeliya Reign controlled the room with her mature spoken word over intense instrumentals. Taylaa spit her “Bartier Cardi “ remix, and Anjahlai hit the stage with a Trina-esque style, showing love to the grown and sexy.
Streewatch Radio sponsored our Spotlight performance with “Get it Right Back” by Swypa. We also featured our Tight32 producer, Gorilla Noise, as volunteers from the crowd freestyled over random tracks that he produced. Rapper Legendary CST took that chance to make a name for himself and got everyone turned up over his freestyle!
