And we HEAR you …
Those of you who entered in the category suggestion section as well.
Your categories will be added in next year's crown.
By public vote:
Album of the year
Best Soul Singer
Most talented (Hip hop, poetry artist) and band
Best Artist to work with
Most Professional Artist
Best Package Award (lyrics, grind, presentation etc)
Best Record Label
Female/Male Artist of the Year
The Best DJ category isn't being added until next year's awards, so those two DJs must have been nominated for broader categories.
What about best Music Video. Baltimore has to stay up to date here. Web video is huge now, and not to include it is extremely limiting for the music andart forms of directing and video making itself. Everything is visual now so it makes since to include best Director, and Video.
That's an excellent suggestion...that you probably should've made 2 weeks ago when everyone else was voting for a dozen new categories that have already been added to next year's awards.Post a Comment
