Local hip-hop website PhoenixHipHop.net posted the nominees for its 2010 Online Hip-Hop Awards this weekend. Unlike those stingy bastards at the Grammy Awards, who only dole out five nominations per category, Phoenix Hip-Hop errs on the side of inclusiveness, with just about everyone who's done anything in local hip-hop this year up for an award or two.
We're not into choosing sides here at Up on the Sun, but we're sure you'll recognize several of the nominees from recent hip-hop features here in the music blog and in the New Times print edition. Voting is open until Jan. 1, 2011, so make sure you support local hip-hop by voting for your favorite artists and going out to see them perform live.
And now, the envelope, please...
"Today we bring you the Official Phoenixhiphop.net Online hip hop Awards. We are letting the fans vote from Dec 1st to Jan 1st 2011 and from there we are going to take the top 4 vote getters and let the panel of judges decide. During the month of December we will be showcasing the artists presented in the Phoenixhiphop.net Online hip hop awards. Make sure to Vote for your favorite artist in each category. If you haven't heard of a certain artist just search for them on this site and check out what pops up. If you know someone who should be nominated that was not nominated then make sure to leave a comment on that poll by clicking the VIEW button on that poll. Hip Hop awards for Arizona hip hop fans here and across America to vote on."
