Hot 97 brought back Def Jam’s newest signee Trinidad James for their monthly Who’s Next concert series held at the world-famous S.O.B.’s night club. James rocked out to a sold out and packed to the nines venue performing some new tunes and of course his smash hit “All Gold Everything”not once but twice.
