2012 Twin Cities Hip-Hop Awards winners & some suggestions for next year

Categories: Rap/Hip Hop
If you haven't heard by now, the Twin Cities Hip-Hop Awards recently celebrated its sixth year. What started out as a simple MySpace poll back in 2007 had turned into a semi-respectable affair -- often selling out venues filled with local heads connecting and having a good time -- but times have changed.

Last year's award gala ended with fighting on stage, and the crackle of Tasers got in the way this year. Not many things in this scene last five years, and back-to-back years of embarrassing behavior might close the book on this one. Especially when this drama overshadows who actually wins each year. So if you haven't seen the tally of 2012 TC Hip-Hop Award recipients, here it is:

What has always been fun about this show is the range found in these 25 categories. Along with "Best Band" and "Best Record" is "Best Knowledge Spitta," handed out to the person who most uplifts the community with lyrics and show. Facebook and message board beefs usually spark up days after the award show, but it's all in good fun. Or is it? We've packed our Taser and extra security as we give our opinion on a few questionable categories, nominees and winners of 2012.

I think djs and rappers that get pissy over some cheap award need to look in the mirror and maybe realize why they are not making it nationally. Just look at this comment section, it says it all.

I think this is right on. Learn how to read, he's not dissing Wiz and Illicit, hes talking about the category. I don't know who Enferno is either but everyone is a DJ these days so whatever. Hey look @ it like this at least City Pages is talking about it. Not like years ago.

Hi, pals!!!
Hi, pals!!!

I also take a 'Big Wizz' on all of this. Spot on, bro.

My My, Lars Larson this here is ludicrous.  I find it interesting that your name is Lars Larson (not too original, eh? speak to your mother about that one) and you've written such a bias, prejudice, and not too add fuel to the fire probably racist article (that's a direct relation to Lars Larson that made the ignorant comment about Obama's supporters- just in case you did not know). 

You should probably do your research before you write such an unimpressive article. You also should not put down things that you do not know much about, very ignorant of you.  You seem to have an issue with Hip Hop and the culture itself. It is very evident that you have animosity towards the TCHAA as well as the nominees.

Furthermore, DJ Enferno.  Now reading your article this has to be the most uneducated opinion I've ever seen from a blonde.  Honestly, where have you been.  The man has DJ'd in multiple cities, at the BET awards, is a MONSTER cable DJ, gives back to his city, DJ's in the club almost 5 nights a week, and is known by everyone in the city.  Enferno and what  he does speaks for himself therefore there I won't even speak more on that, but just to SHUT you up here you go.... http://www.monsterdj.com/djart....

ALSO to set the record straight, I Google'd you (to check if you were relevant) and you know what?? you were nowhere in the first 5 pages on Google (I stopped there) so CLEARLY you are NOT.  But I'd just recommend that you do not go barking up the wrong tree disrespecting these artists, djs, organization, and nominees, your repercussions will be something you are NOT prepared for.
