F.L.O. EMPIRE NETWORK EXPANDS INTO TELEVISION WITH ITS FIRST TAPED SHOWCASE
DISCLAIMER: THIS POST FIRST APPEARED ON BX UNDERGROUND’S WEBSITE AFTER FILMING FOR SAID EVENT
Sunday May 20th, the F.L.O. Empire Network kicked off the celebration of its upcoming A-List tournament taking place at The Delancey. Starting on the first of July, 64 artists, hailing from all genres will compete in a winner-take-all tournament to earn an exclusive record deal certified by F.L.O. Empire Network.
Over the course of the year, rappers and vocalists congregated at The Delancey for multiple installments of the A-List Showcase to prove their worth as an artist. Whether you’re from the five boros, the tri-state area, or the Dirty South, F.L.O. Empire is the network you need to impress. You may be asking: “Why celebrate the upcoming tournament?”. The simple answer: it will be televised. F.L.O. Empire Network has stepped up its game with the introduction of its IGTV television network. Not only are the radio shows live-streamed and broadcast on IGTV, but F.L.O.’s live events are recorded for TV broadcast as well. July 1st marks the start of the competition, with this last event serving as the preview. Let’s take a look at who the killed the stage.
Ox Don brought the BX crowd with him and took Manhattan as is own that night. With a set displaying the grit and coarseness of old school New York rap, New York was in good hands that night. In true OG fashion, he even arrived late to the show’s registration with a huge party so the promoter had to let Ox in.
While not an official act for the show, F.L.O. Empire realized the comedy genius of Karma. A great addition to the show without braking momentum or stealing the spotlight from the competing artists. Karma is a refreshing blend of old school Def Jam Comedy and the sarcasm of a millennial.
515 had multiple members of their crew on hand, but the smooth vocals of Jaquon had everyone looking up Peekskill on their map. It’s true hustle to trek through the vastness of Peekskill to get into the city late on a Sunday night.
The OMB Twins came out the furthest, from ATL, and really plugged the whole club with energy and party vibes for most of the night. While still preaching the trap and party lifestyle, as the mainstream does, these twins carried an authenticity to them that gives their work some credibility and individuality.
Closing out the show was the most unexpected artist, mostly because he looked like a part of someone else’s crew the whole night. But when Yamagi finally hit the stage, The Delancey somehow had more energy in it than when the show first started. Better yet, he’s repping the BX and multi-cultural artists.
All these showcases can be seen on the F.L.O. Empire Network website, with the tournament soon to air on IGTV. If you want to see it live then be sure to stop by The Delancey where the showcase will be filmed.
