Drake- “Every Girl” at HOT 97’s Who’s Next Live from Nitaboo on Vimeo.

so, I had a fun night at SOB’s with alot of good friends and good music courtesy of the crown-buzz-holder of the moment, young Drake. The small venue was totally packed for the Hot97 Who’s Next showcase with Peter Rosenberg….although its probably a misnomer for Drake, who is hardly “next”….as evidenced by the fact that in the sweaty tiny dressing room, there were alot of people packed in there, from Kanye West and Don C to Ryan Leslie, Talib Kweli and Def Jam big wigs, Atlantic execs and folks from MTV, RapRadar, Billboard, and of course, the Nahright homies Eskay and Dre.
And then there’s the fact that Warner/Atlantic boss Lyor Cohen was standing dead center in the crowd for a couple hours.

There’s high quality video/audio of the show coming soon from my boy DJ Ness, And that will be well worth the wait. But in the meantime, check my play-by-play and twitpics on Twitter. And above is Hot97.com’s first videos of Drake onstage with surprise guest Bun B, etc.
(In my opinion, the two highest moments in the show was Bun B and Drake doing “Uptown,” and Drake’s performance of “Unstoppable.”)

(ps: thank you to Bun, manager Red, and Asylum’s Joeyie for making sure I was safe and sound at the show.)

More Hot97 videos and Twitpics after the jump…
