On Monday night in NYC, Bed-Stuy native Manolo Rose held his private listening session at the Born Fly studio for his new EP entitled Concrete Rose. It was a star-studded event with music by Hot 97’s own DJ Bobby Trends along with media coverage from every major Hip-Hop news outlet such as XXL, InFlexWeTrust, The Source, Vibe, HipHopSince1987 and many others. Manolo and his crew performed each track off the EP with so much energy, giving us a visual of the tape he’s put so much hard work and effort into. After being able to attend the event and hear it for myself, I am most DEFINITELY a fan of the “Run Ricky Run” rapper. Check out some footage from the listening event below!
