The 2016 Philly Hip Hop Awards Take Place December 18th! Here’s Why Hip Hop Fans Need to Be There
There’s no denying Philly’s impact in the rap world. From triple OG hip hop tracks such as Frankie Smith’s Double Dutch Bus in the early 80’s to Scholly D’s fresh rhymes in the late 80’s, Will Smith’s polarizing hits of the 90’s then ultimately the gritty 2000’s. The latest era has a slew of rappers that are way too many to name. Which ever era you relate to the most, it’s always good to pay homage to those who carry on tradition. This Sunday December 18th, Philly’s top rhymers, producers, promoters and just about everyone that has their hand in the culture will be on-hand for the 2016 Philly Hip Hop Awards presented by Urban Celebrity Magazine.
This year promises to be one for the books. With over 40 categories, the Philly Hip Hop Awards goes out of their way to recognize everyone’s contribution to the game. From the MC’s to the Dj’s, event organizers, bloggers and everyone in-between. This is a celebration of culture and tradition.
As with each year Urban Celebrity’s Philly Hip Hop Awards always recognizes the pioneers of the game with special Honoree Awards. This year’s legends that will be on hand will be Lady B, Ms Jade, Charlie Baltimore, Major Figgas, Bahamadia, and Big Phil.
