Posted on Posted in Event Coverage, morbookings, Music

Last week Tuesday, there was only one place to be and it was at Brooklyn Exposure. Mor.Bookings held an event at the wildly popular bar, located at 1401 Bedford Avenue, where underground artists displayed their talents to a live audience.The line-up consisted of nine artists from all over New York City, who blessed the audience with their unbelievable talents.
From start to finish, there was not a dull moment in the place. Every artist who performed that night brought something different and unique to the crowd. Starting with Brooklyn-born singer, songwriter, and rapper Ebony J. Ms. J was the only female of all the performers and she really represented for the ladies that night. She performed two songs, ‘Brooklyn’ which is about the city that made her, and ‘5 am’ which is about working hard until the early hours of the morning and it was used a source of motivation for others to keep pursuing their dreams and never give up.
The rest of the line-up consisted of all men and they came to make the audience aware of who they were and what they stood for. The next act was a young man from Queens named SkeeBudda. During his performance, he got real emotional performing “That Love Ain’t Here”. While performing his last two songs,”Queens the Realness” and “Represent”, SkeeBudda professed how lyrically different he is and how works because it is a different time, a time when he just needs to “spit bars”.
It was time to shy away from the rapping for a bit as singer Greg Wilson took the stage. Wilson wowed the crowd by performing a medley of his favorite old school and new school songs such as Lauryn Hill’s “Can’t take my eyes off of you”, Drake’s “Controlla”, and Disclosure’s “Latch”. After getting the crowd hyped, Wilson performed his own song entitled “My Way” which he states it’s him as an artist speaking his truth as part of his testimony.
During the second half of the show, the last set of artists to performed. Setting the stage ablaze with their songs. T.Ramsey’s performance was a great one because he interacted with the crowd and feeded off of their energy throughout his entire performance. Ramsey performed three songs “Remember When”, Options which sampled New Edition’s Hot Tonite song, and “Woman Crush Everyday”. The next two performers were representing from Brooklyn and definitely showed their city love and vice versa. Chris Dance from Mill Basin performed ” The Warmup ft. BV$E”, “Trust” and “Bonita”, while Yun Nostra from Brownsville, performed “Vibing”, “Deathstroke” and “Roots”. Both performers had the place rocking during each of their set.
After Brooklyn, Long Island was in the building to represent and the artist name was Baddtime. This artist performed “Pounds; To the Ceiling; Move Slow, and Whine for Me”. Baddtime’s sound was a blend of the sound of hip-hop and dancehall. The next artist to perform was Wes Block and his performance was a bit on the political side. With songs like “OB1”, “The Dead”, and “Pray”, Wes Block had his message within his songs geared towards the outcome of the election, and also the social issues many were facing on a daily basis. The Bronx closed out the show with an old- school hip-hop by the artist name of T-Smoove. T- Smoove performed three songs, “The Real; “I Pull Up” and “BIMP”. All of these artists brought a uniqueness to this show last Tuesday night.
