2010 Madison Hip Hop Awards

November 5th, 2010 marked the date of first annual Madison Hip Hop Awards. For a Hip Hop community who has had many trials and tribulations over the years, this was a momentous occasion. In front of a crowd of about 300 people, movers and shakers in Madison’s diverse Hip Hop industry came to accept awards, and perform in support of this event. This was most definitely a milestone for the community, and proves the local scene and  culture can thrive regardless of stigma attached to it.

Save for a minor technical issue in the second half, the performances by local artists Dumate, Star Persons, First Wave and Krucial Impak kept the vibe live, and made for an entertaining show. Not only can Madison put on a bangin’ show, all the proceeds from the event went to the Toys for Tots Organization. I can only look forward to what is in store for next year!

Congratulations to both the nominees and the winners, you guys are the heartbeat of Madison’s Hip Hop scene and without your creativity, talent and perseverance, the scene would not be where it is today! PROPS! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the event. Skip to the end of this postfor a Gallery Link and Slideshows!
