September 25th, 2014- Month after month Hot 97 serves up the hottest new talent with their Who’s Next Showcase live from SOBs in downtown, Manhattan. As usual, Hot 97 put together a stacked line-up with BJ The Chicago Kid and Adrian Marcel opening up for Mila J. This showcase was a perfect close to the summer as these young talents look to make themselves household names as the year comes to a close.

Rising vocalist Adrian Marcel impressed the crowd with his great range and even incorporated a cover of R Kelly's Bump N Grind into his set.

BJ The Chicago Kid has risen to fame behind the chorus on Schoolboy Q's hit single Studio, but his staying power will be re-enforced by his soulful voice and powerful note hitting ability. Still, hearing the crowd sing word for word alongside his summer anthem was one of the moments of the night.

Mila J was the night's headliner and while her set was a bit shorter than most would've hoped, she packed a lot into her couple of songs. Mila J and her dancers entertained the crowd by dancing to Bobby Shmurda's Hot Ni**a and Ty Dolla Sign's Paranoid before performing her breakout singles My Main and Smoke, Drink & Breakup.

Mila J got close and personal with the audience, leaving the stage to sing right amongst her crowd of spectators. By the end of the night, fans were left wanting more of the Cali bred songstress.

Altogether, Hot 97 put together another vibrant concert with their September 2014 Who's Next Showcase. Stay tuned so see who they bring to the stage next month.
