Roll the Dice!

Posted: May 15, 2009 in X-Files

So tomorrow is the long awaited Hip Hop World Awards and we at X2 have nothing better to do than sit in a corner of the office and bet on the winners. Check out our predictions:

Album of the year Talk About it (MI). Common this album sold 30,000 copies in within 30 minutes of release. So they say.

Artiste of the year D’Banj. Brother can beat the best politician when it comes to moving the crowd.

Song of the Year Gongo Aso (9ice). Even if you’re hearing impaired, you can’t be oblivious to this street anthem.

Recording of the year Okay… was a bit confused over this one – Torn between Street Credibility and Not the Girl

Producer of the Year It’s Don Jazzy Again!!!

Best Music Video People (at least in our newsroom, don’t remember this Pere video so maybe the deserving nominee is…

Best Reggae/Dance Hall Album The Gift and Grace album by Timaya has been banging all dance hall, and this is literally, ha ha!

Best R ‘n’B/Pop Album Entertainer (D’banj). This album is popping up everywhere.

Best Rap Album Paradigm Shift (Mode9): Although controversial, this rapper’s rhyme takes a lot of other rappers through school. They’ll be learning the stuff that he taught.

Best collaboration J Martins Good or Bad and  Lord of Ajasa ft. 9ice ‘Le Fenu So’. Both collaborations are outstanding and actually work. Either is worth the award.

Best Rap Single Kini Big Deal (Naeto C): so what if he’s already won the MAMA? What’s the Big Deal?

Best Vocal Performance (male) Darey Art Alade, ‘Not the Girl’. The brother hits like how many notes in this track?

Best Vocal Performance (female) Men, these babes. Hmm…no prediction here, although Waje…

Next Rated? We’re placing our bets on Kel and Omawumi cos these girls are hot AND Djinee has been around a bit too long to be in this category.

Hip Hop World Revelation MI Talk About It. This revelation is the genesis  of a new beginning in Naija Hip Hop.

Lyricist on the Roll This is definitely between Mode9’s Nine and MI’s Talk about It. Their …flow is A plus plus – Mode 9 (Nine)

Best Street Hop What is this?
