On Monday, May 18, 2015 Hot 97 hosted their “Who’s Next” series at SOB’s in New York City, featuring three female hip hop artists to watch: Asia Sparks, Detroit Che, and Tink.
Asia Sparks opened the show with a full band. Allowing her “raw” lyrics to rise above the soulmatic vocals of her background singers. Donning a white laced dress with a high frontal split, she entertained the crowd and brought a classic feel to her musical set. Her sounds ranged from a guitar bass rock n roll feel, to a sample of the reggae classic “Murder She Wrote,” closing with a rap over the notorious Eugene Wilde “Gotta Get You Home Tonight.” Asia Sparks rapped, danced, and sang debuting a new single that will be on her upcoming EP. Paying homage to her hometown of Philadelphia, she showed NYC “brotherly love”.
