Following the launch of Spotify Greenroom, the live audio platform is set to debut its new weekly hip-hop show Most Necessary: Live with host Brian “B. Dot” Miller. On Tuesday (Sept. 14), B. Dot will bring Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist to life to discuss rising hip-hop artists, debate trending topics in the genre and dive deep into each week’s playlists edits with guests and fans alike.
Back in March, the streaming service acquired Betty Labs and in June, relaunched the live audio app Locker Room as Spotify Greenroom — marking “the addition of live audio as part of the Spotify ecosystem” the company wrote in their announcement. “Since bringing the Locker Room app into the fold, we’ve been working to expand its capabilities, with the goal of creating a live audio experience that will delight creators and listeners everywhere.”
B. Dot, who also hosts Complex Brackets, doesn’t hold his tongue when it comes to debating hip-hop’s hottest takes. “Hip-hop conversations are never ending. They start in the booth and usually end up on social media. I’ve never been one to hold back and for anyone that’s followed my career, they know I have a lot to say,” he told Billboard. With Most Necessary: Live, B. Dot plans to “create a community where the conversations are not only engaging and constructive, but reflective of the weekly updates.”
Most Necessary: Live is set to debut on Spotify Greenroom on Tuesday, Sept. 14 on at 9 p.m. ET. Listeners can sign up for the platform here.
