International Special hailing out of East New York Brooklyn has been a mogul behind the scenes of the rap industry for decades. Special kept his nose to the streets and in a bag, the streets knew how special he was before he even picked up a microphone to show the world. Unlike a lot of upcoming artist in the industry, the lavish lifestyle he raps about is only a portrayal of his reality.


Monday night at SOBs, Special graced the stage with crew and fellow Brooklynite DJ Magic to tell us Who’s Next. He commanded the attention of the audience literally showering the audience and throwing money. International Special performed his contagious hit single “Foreign,” and other smash hit “Go,” where he let us know his friends are ready to “go” at any moment.


Special is unapologetically highlighting the ways of the streets and proudly bringing his community along for the new ride. When speaking to the East New York native his presence and demeanor were very humble, he explained how quickly the track “Foreign” has taken off and landed him a deal with Sony.


International Special is not the groundbreaking millennial rapper were used to, but as he said during his magnetic performance Monday at Sob’s he a street *****, putting facts on tracks. His life has already been bright, but let’s see what’s next for Special.


Check out a clip of Special International’s SOBs performance at Hot 97’s Who’s Next.
