Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg‘s foray into late-night television went down this week and the opening episode showcased the longtime radio host in a new light. In the first episode of Open Late, Rosenberg welcomed A$AP Rocky as his first guest with Araabmuzik serving as the in-house producer and music provider.
Rosenberg’s opening monologue was rather self-aware, as he took care to mention that he was a white man entering into late-night in a field which is already dominated by those of his ilk. With Araabmuzik providing the heat, Rosenberg ran down the news of the day starting with Cardi B and her ascension to fame with a panel that included Complex’s Frazier Tharpe, and Bow Wow.
Rocky represented for the A$AP Mob while talking Travis Scott, new music on the horizon, and working with Kanye West, and more. Rich the Kid rocked the Open Late crowd as the musical guest.
