The NYC debut for Portland rapper Aminé was a success as he brought out fans and performed to a packed room full of devotees. In addition to it being his debut show, Kari Faux and Allan Kingdom came through to hype up the crowd and get the party going.

“Caroline” is Aminé’s viral hit, bearing almost 6.5 million views on YouTube and getting boasts all over the internet, including a Snapchat promo from ‘It Girl’ Kylie Jenner herself. It’s a given that when you hear the introducing skit for the record that the crowd is going to lose it. Once the chorus hit, that is exactly what happened as everyone bopped to the witty lyrics and festive production.

Overall, Aminé’s show was a success that left his fans with new music, positive energy and a good night out on the town for the turn up! Later that weekend, Aminé graced NYC with his presence once again with a surprise performance at Afropunk. Congrats to Amine for coming to the concrete jungle and goin bananas + a huge thank you to everyone who came out to show love!
