Clad in shorts, a matching bucket hat and a number 10 jersey, Nitty Scott, MC touched down in New York City at the legendary SOBs stage and blessed an intimate crowd of heads with her razor tongued poetics. The Brooklyn-made rapper took the Who’s Next stage by storm and conquered a crowd of fans and critics, unlike any other female lyricist in the game today. Perhaps her petite stature and that captivating dimpled smile makes for an atypical wordsmith who’ll really go bar for bar all night. With fan-faves like “Flower Child” and “Auntie Maria’s Crib,” her fire remix of “Trophies” and a new gem off The Art of Chill “Feng Shui,” Nitty Scott took up the gauntlet and certainly proved to be next.
Before the night ended, Chi-Town’s own Vic Mensa, fresh off tour with Disclosure, also emerged on stage and let go a shit-storm of funk with his unadulterated energy. A real live wire, the rap golden child hurdled through songs off INNANETAPE, from “Lovely Day” to “YNSP” to “Hollywood LA” to “Orange Soda.” Yung Save Peso even debuted a new musical snack produced by Kaytranada before he bid farewell with something off the dome.
