OVERVIEW OF URBAN THRESHOLDS UNDERGROUND MUSIC AWARDS
Urban Threshold's Underground Music Awards is a national award show that breaks all of the rules of conventionalism. Unlike the Grammy Awards or the Billboard Music Awards, the Underground Music Awards were created to acknowledge and honor the achievements and contributions of unsigned and independent artists within the urban music scene. Every year there are incredible records released by independent labels and artists. Very rarely do the institutional accolades of the music industry reach or embrace independent music or the community of artists and fans who now represent 25% of all global music sales. Hence, the Underground Music Awards Program was born to fill that void.
Past winners and Honorees of Urban Threshold's Underground Music Awards include: Ice T, Naughty By Nature, EPMD, Lupe Fiasco, MIMS, Styles P, Kid Capri, MOP, Papoose, Remy Martin, Killah Priest, Afu-Rah, Kool G. Rap, Lil Mama, DJ Red Alert, Ralph McDaniels, Cormega, DJ Kay Slay, Saigon, Lumidee, and many more..
After 8 very successful years, Urban Threshold Enterprises Inc. continues to make it their top priority to bring together music professionals, artists, DJ's, fans, media outlets and more to network, build relationships and celebrate the culture of independent urban music. Urban Threshold's Underground Music Awards combines the elements of an award show, a music conference, an informational seminar, and an entertainment showcase into one lively event.
Moreover, It features and participants, from all over the world, representing the full spectrum of underground Hip Hop, R&B, Gospel, and Reggae music and fashion as a global phenomenon.
The 3 day event is packed with panel discussions, artist showcases, networking opportunities, product demonstrations and the awards ceremony.
The 2010 Underground Music Awards was held at the world famous BB Kings Concert Hall in New York City's Times Square. Last year's award show marked one of the year's most celebrated events in NYC. Special Awards were presented to Rap Pioneer Ice T, Hip Hop Icons Naughty By Nature and legendary Rap Duo EPMD. The 2010 UMA's received extensive coverage from Clear Channel's Power 105.1FM, the Source Magazine, and All Hip Hop.com. These media outlets have pledged to support the UMA's in 2011. The excitement and buzz of the 2010 awards show was only paralleled by its overall support and attendance. As the date of the 2011's show draws near, the same sense of anticipation is growing.
The 2011 Underground Music Awards Weekend is tentatively scheduled to take place in NYC on August 19th, 20th & 21st. The legendary BB Kings Concert Hall in the heart of NYC's Times Square will play host to the awards ceremony.
