Last Thursday night was a special one down in South London. In front of a sold out crowd, rapper Jesse James Solomon headlined his first show at Elephant and Castle’s Corsica Studios and brought it home in the best way possible.
Ir was a truly sensational night, with a stacked line-up in which Jesse brought out his best homies to help him out. This included assists from Rejjie Snow, Victor Taiwo, Crave and his Sub Luna City brothers Jadasea, Rago Foot and Black Mack behind the boards.
Coasting through his repertoire, Solomon tore the place down with bangers from his two EPs, ‘Jesse From SE’ and ‘The Ride Home’, expressing a comfort on stage that was reciprocated by the intensity of the crowd. This is just a sign of things to come from the South London MC.
