South Carolina Palmetto-2

I know I said I would post the winners for the 2009 South Carolina Hip-Hop Awards yesterday, but it took the major of the day to tally everything up, so I’m just now getting around to posting it. Once again, I’d like to thank On Point Magazine, TheLyfeStyle.com, CarolinaHustle.com and Higher Learning for helping me compile the lists and choose the winners. Congratulations to all the winners, nominees and South Carolina hip-hop as a whole. 2009 was a good year for SC music, lets keep it pushing in 2010.

The winners are listed after the jump, and feel free to express your distaste in the comment section. Happy New Year, everyone.

Artist Of The Year
Winner: Lil Ru

lilru

2nd:Lil Brod
3rd: Danny!

Summary: You can say what you want about Lil Ru. But no South Carolina had a bigger year than Mr. Nasty Song. In 2009, Ru signed a major label deal with Def Jam Recordings, “Nasty Song” was spinning all over the country and the video played on BET. Of course, his debut album 21 & Up flopped, but hell, he still released an album on fuxing Def Jam. If you still don’t get it, ask yourself this…what did you do in 2009?

Album Of The Year
Winner: Danny! – Where Is Danny?

WhereIsDanny

2nd: Lil Ru – 21 & Up
3rd: Dan Johns – Hype Machine

Summary: HipHopDX, Prefix Magazine, Rap Reviews and Billboard were all fuxing with Danny!’s sixth solo album. Who are we to discredit them?

Song Of The Year
Winner: Mista Taylor – “Shoot Da F*ck Up”

2nd: Lil Ru – “Nasty Song”
3rd: Lil Brod – “Do U Mind”

Summary: Yeah, “Nasty Song” did make a bigger splash on a national level (but we all know that song is a couple years old). In 2009, you couldn’t step into any SC club without hearing Mista Taylor’s “Shoot Da F*ck Up” and watching the entire club get all the way turnt up. Funny that the song is a diss record about shooting a nucca, but that’s how my Chucktown people do.

Video Of The Year
(Tie) Winners: Righchus & Max Berry – “Go Hard” (Directed by Taylor and Blake Engel) / Preach Jacobs & Denz – “Falling” (Directed by Ryan Cockrell)

Righchus & Max Berry – “Go Hard”

Preach Jacobs & Denz – “Falling”

3rd: Varsity (formerly Statehouse) feat. Lil Ru – “Crank Dat Roy (Remix)”

Summary: Both Righchus & Max Berry and Preach & Denz had cinematographic videos that made their presentations more movies than music videos, lifting the SC music video game to new standards.

Best Mixtape
Winner: warrenJae & Sam King – What Dreams May Come

2nd (Tie): Boss G. & DJ Bord – Rookie of the Year / TrapStar, DJ Cannon Banyon & DJ Dyce – In Tune With My Star Player

Summary: Other artists may have had more copies in the streets, but from an internet standpoint, warrenJae’s debut mixtape What Dreams May Come was the most anticipated SC mixtape of the year. And judging from the comments and feedback, warrenJae’s debut lived up to the expectations.

Best New Artist
Winner: Lil Brod

2nd: warrenJae
3rd: Boss G.

Summary: Some people were familiar with Lil Brod prior to 2009, but for the majority of folks, Brod was an unknown until his breakthrough single “Do U Mind” hit clubs and airwaves. Since then, the Head Hunter Records rookie hasn’t looked back, making him not only South Carolina’s Best New Artist, but one of SC’s best hip-hop artists, period.

Best Group
Winner: Varsity (formerly Statehouse)

varsity

2nd: Hustle Boyz
3rd: Team I.R.A.C.

Summary: This group formed in Orangeburg, SC, had everyone across the state “Cranking Dat Roy.” In 2009, they signed with Grand Hustle, released a mixtape with DJ Chuck T, and then kinda sorta broke up. But Juve, A-Butta and J. Slayer are still signed to the house that T.I. and Jason Geter built, under the name Varsity, and 2010 should be an even bigger year for the trio.

Best Producer
Winner: $9 Million

9mil

2nd: MIDImarc
3rd: Jiggy Jay

Summary: $9 Mill produced Lil Ru’s “Nasty Song.” That should be enough said. And if that’s not enough, he produced a bunch of other South Carolina hits that you love, too.

Best Mixtape DJ
(Tie) Winners: DJ B-Lord & DJ Cannon Banyon

blord.jpgcannon

3rd: DJ Chuck T

Summary: DJ B-Lord and DJ Cannon Banyon hosted the majority of SC’s hottest mixtapes this year. If I have to list them, B-Lord’s name was attached to Boss G., Team I.R.A.C., Lil Brod and Sauce. While Cannon beasted out for TrapStar, Snook Da Rokkstar and Wacka Flocka Flame. You can’t argue with either one of these picks.

Slept-On Artist Of The Year
Winner: Akshun

akshun

2nd (Tie): Preach Jacobs & GT

Summary: Often times Akshun is lost in Dan Johns shadows (sorry, Ak, it’s true), but in his own right, this Magnum Opus representer is one of the Carolinas dopest emcees. Once his new project Sinner’s Therapy drops in 2010, Akshun won’t be as slept-on as he is now.

And finally…

Most Influential
Winner: South Carolina Media

scmedia

For the final award I want to recognize South Carolina media for the impact that it had on South Carolina hip-hop music in 2009. To be real, a lot of artists wouldn’t be where they are now if it wasn’t for the journalists, writers, photographers, websites, magazines, etc. that represent for SC on a daily basis. Not just myself, but from Steelz at On Point Magazine to Ms. Chriss at TheLyfeStyle.com to to Cleve Harrison’s photography to Otis Taylor at The State newspaper to Buck TV to Shera Bass and the work she put in with the South Carolina Music Awards to Chubbz and the crew at the SMES to the radio personalities and radio DJs all across the state (that’s all media), South Carolina media is arguably at the highest and most influential point that it’s ever been in. So, with that said, I’m shouting out the media and we can all pat our own muthaf*ckin’ backs for a second.

Conclusion: That concludes the 2009 South Carolina Online Hip-Hop awards. Sorry, we don’t have a budget to give out trophies and sh!t. This is just something that me and my team of bloggers put together to say, “hey, South Carolina artists, we see ya’ll working, we see ya’ll grinding. And you are appreciated.” And if you don’t like how our awards turned out…hey, do your own awards and keep it moving. But most importantly, lets all just continue to work together, grind together and make positive things happen for South Carolina music in 2010. Keep it pushing, ya’ll.

  16. Music: Boss G & DJ Dyce & DJ Cannon Banyon – Triple Threat. « H1GHER LEARNING

    [...] Although this may not have been the most anticipated mixtape by a South Carolina artist (that award goes to Warren Jae’s What Dreams My Come) but Boss G had Twitter on FIYAH Monday night with this mixtape being retweeted by damn near everyone in my timeline, even other South Carolina rappers! How’s that for #SCSHipHop starting 2010 on the unified front? For that reason alone I believe that this is worth the download and hopefully it will be worth the listen as well. Don’t sleep on the DJs he’s working with on this project either, in fact DJ Cannon Banyon was voted one of South Carolina’s best DJs this past year. [...]

    [...] readers, here’s the long-overdue album from the artist we crowned South Carolina’s most slept-on MC, Akshun. This is South Carolina hip-hop at it’s purest. [...]
