somehow i think this list was exactly what and who i expected would be on it. not exactly erybody i wanted up but its what i expected. Its still well deserved for the folks up so i can't do nufin' but show luv.

Wonder why they ain't have the "BEst Hip-Hop or Go-go recording" on R&B?

loco said...

I see the email blast worked for a lot of these unknown mutherfuckers. This shit is why I can give 2 fucks about the dmv scene. Please tell me who are these people.

Anonymous said...

Seriously?? Who wrote this list and what are your credentials? It appears your circle is very small and your ear for music is lame.

suspect ass awards said...

Damn damn damn this list is unbelievable. And how the people throwing the event get nominated. I'm disgusted with this shit. So some of these people gonna win and aint do shit and think they superstars.
Not going this year.

Deontae said...

Regardless of the nomination, this is all we have for our DMV Movement. 6yrs ago we didn't have this but the Wammies awards and most of ya never heard of that. Everyone have their 2cent of how they feel about, but whether we like it or not, it still ours to show for. Every other states have thier own award so why can we. I was there when it 1st created and yes I was nominated for the 1st and 2nd one. But this I didn't get nominated (although they should have put my name with 20 Bello)but still will support this. So next year we all need to come harder so everyone that get nominated next year will know who's who.

The CO-OP Entertainment Company said...

for those who don't know who Konshens is: www.konshens.com

dude has been putting in his grind without the benefit of being able to jump on open mics. when you have a 7 piece band, its impossible to show up, sign up and then SET UP AN ENTIRE BAND just to perform 1 or 2 songs! most of these venues where everybody else get to perform don't even have a sound system that could accomadate a band anyway.

so, yeah, we understand that most people may not know who Konshens and his State of Mind is right now...but dude is making moves in and out of the DMV (AND, he REALLY is from UPTOWN! lol).

want some more history? he used to go by the name of "Tod" when he was the lead rapper for High Image go-go band. they used to open Back and some other well known go-go bands...matter of fact, UCB used to open for them! but now he doing hip hop and go by "Konshens"...check his credentials!

his HIP HOP band (State of Mind) just headlined a ROCK concert in Baltimore 2 nights ago and those white people went fucking nuts over what they heard! they never heard a band blend hip hop, go-go, r&b, jazz and funk all in one sound! and because shows for hip hop bands are so scarce here IN dc, we had to line up shows for him outta town...for the next month Konshens is gonna be in Philly, NY (Nyack and Buffalo) and back in Baltimore.

The whole reason why The CO-OP Entertainment Company exist is because of the lack of shows for bands like his. Thats why we banded together...so we could throw shows that would not only include artists with bands like himself, but also for other artists who just need a legit venue to perform without a promoter trying to juice them for cash...feel me?

Thats how the show we do on Saturdays at Haydees was born. alot of people don't know that he is 1/3 of The CO-OP and responsible for helping other artists get their shine also...if nothing else you gotta respect a dude who is an artist himself out there hustlin' to get other artist on too, feel me?

he may have a different grind than most of these artists, but his talent is definitely undeniable...

Time for my yearly EMA speech

If an award/nomination can make or break your spirit, career, motivation, drive, etc. your heart ain't in the right place

*stepping off of soapbox*

LOL

How can you put Wale Nike Boots up in a video of the year category???? HAHA..That shit had a budget and was directed by Chris Robinson...LOL!

ViceLife said...

smh,not to sure bout this one.congrats to those that are in the runnings,though i some i never heard of before.just felling some kinda way that alot of the grinders in the area that i respect and thought was gonna get some attention,i dont see on the list,Ra,XO,Lyriciss,AB,Nando,Model Citizenz,Benji etc. Good look on Judah,and DJ Heat nominations.they got something right atleast

Anonymous said...

I know people wit Wammies and that shits official but this here is fluke ain't no other way to sugar coat it.

JUST ANOTHER DIRTY TOPP DOGG said...

.elle denise. said...

LOL (or not)

dwayne said...

yo...its like this...i don't like the process anymore than most ya'll do. The process to get nominated in the first place is the issue...NOT the artists! i agree that there are some obvious omissions of GREAT talent that should be in ALL of these categories! like the gospel category...other than Mo' Betta (who i still don't know how he keeps getting in this category when dude maintains that he is not an artist) who else do you know that you would have put in that category? i can honestly say that i don't know any of them either...but at the same time, because i don't really know that genre i can't say that those people don't deserve to be there! i wouldn't even know who i would nominate for that category or who SHOULD be there either. but SOMEHOW because of the process they were nominated...can't knock them for taking advantage of the system. if ya'll thought XO, Lyriciss and all those that should be nominated, then ya'll should have voted for them whether they "campaigned" or not to get nominated. its like complaining who is President, but you didn’t vote...feel me? It’s the process...like it or not.

i'm just saying that, that don't mean the people who DID get nominated are not grinding too. some of them got on because of a strong email campaign...some got on because the are "online superstars" (lol)...and some got one purely by working they ass off to at least be in the conversation of being the best of the best. regardless of how they got there, or who is not on there, we should take our time to get to know who IS nominated....thats all i'm saying.

i'm a fan of all the folks Vice Life mentioned and PLENTY others that were not nominated in other categories as well...BUT instead of calling it fluke, do something to make it better then. volunteer to be apart of the process for next year. or get a coalition of folks together and do whole 'nother award show then.

the way i see it is, IF this award show means nothing because its fluke, then why everybody seem to be so damn upset by it? personally, i don't give a damn who wins. i'm just look at it as another way to get people to know and hear about Konshens. to us its more of an "advertising" tool since dude don't get a chance otherwise in this city to get recognized. i don't really care if you think he better or worse than the next artist. all i care about is keeping this train moving and getting as much exposure as you can get an artist. and THATS how this business is supposed to work. being underground is cool, but thats what plagued this city for so long. people don't know how to take it to the next level. and exposure...any positive exposure is the key...trust me, i know.

so if you think he is fluke because he got nominated through a fluke process, then i say you are wrong. if you say that he don't deserve to be there, then i say you are wrong too. there are alot of questionable nominees, no doubt about that, but those people did what they had to...they followed the rules and this is where it landed them....no more, no less.

i like that alot of ya'll are saying "who the hell is that?" one of the Topp Dogg dudes went to look up Substantial on myspace and saw that dude had 500,000 song play and been traveling around the world touring. thats what i mean...just because YOU (or even myself) has never heard of these folks don't mean they not legit. hell, i never heard of Substantial until DJ Heat hipped me to him and recommended we get him up at Haydees...why? Because i thought someone doing that much needed EXPOSURE where people can see that this dude deserved to be nominated for something! just like alot of artists we tried to bring up there...especially the b-more acts that we down here in DC are not familiar with. but ya'll rather put someone down and call them fluke just because they don't run in the circles you run....ok...thats cool and thats your opinion. hell, when i watch the grammy's i don't know half of the folks nominated and the one's i do know i don't half way agree with them getting a nomination either…but then, I’m not a part of the process. I can care less who won a grammy or not…I’m gonna like who I like and buy whoever CD I want based on my taste, not because that person got a damn grammy!

there are ALOT of popular artists out there that probably SHOULD be nominated. i say we BOND together so for next year and the years after that, that we make sure those people DO get recognized. tearing it down now is not doing any damn good.

thats what is wrong with this city right now. everything gotta be easy for it to be right. we don't work towards nothing positive...we don't know how to BUILD...well, at least not yet...i think we are learning how to be a city that BUILDS artists. i think we are becoming a music city (and arts in general). but we just don't have it quite right yet. we don't quite know how to handle people trying to be successful, because we don't know what "success" looks like as a music city.

i've been around this music scene in DC for over 20 years dating back to my go-go band days...and after traveling around this country and seeing cities go from no music to music meccas, and spending time working for labels in NY, i can tell you what people think of the music scene in DC...and its not good! everything negative that is being said in this blog is EXACTLY what they think of us...this is EXACLTY what i had to defend when i worked for labels in NY trying to convince them that Nonchalant, Black Indian and maybe a few others were not anomalies! trying to tell them that there is more to DC music than go-go...which outside the beltway they hate...well, they like the commercial go-go but not in its pure form anyway.

but ya'll don't have the benefit of seeing what i've seen...i can understand that...and i'm only one person. thats why we don't need this right now. we are on the cusp of being a powerhouse music market...but this is the shit that tears us down everytime. we just can't seem to get our shit together and get right!

so i say all of this to say...QUIT YOUR BITCHING AND START A REVOLUTION!!! (a music one, that is!)

that list is a complete joke. not once did i see RAtheMC on there who has made a big impact in this area, i saw alot of no names....

how you have dmv awards nominees and theres no chucky thompson or no BKS for producers of the year, those guys are carrying our city musically more than anybody else by far...dude, this obviously has to be a joke!

i'd just like to say that i'm thankful that the "warning" video got nominated and that the package are scheduled to perform at the event.

much love to all the nominees

i hope everyone makes it out and we get to meet you if we haven't already.
