Last night, music enthusiasts gathered at Opera Nightclub in Atlanta as International DJ/Artist Lil Jon was honored at the 2014 “Respect the DJ” event presented by DJ Mami Chula. That’s something to say YEAH about huh? Well…OK, here’s the scoop…
The King of Crunk & the Legendary DJ Nabs were both awarded with Innovator Awards for their huge contribution to both Atlanta & it’s thriving music culture. BEfore DJ Nabs was given his plaque, he opened up with an amazing DJ set chronicling why he’s known & regarded as one of ATL’s BEst DJs. After which, Lil Jon sat on his throne and watched an excellently executed video tribute giving an in depth look at how he’s influenced the music game.
Along with the awards ceremony (which a few other renowned & esteemed DJs also took home FIT Radio Awards), “Respect the DJ” also featured a live DJ battle, where the winner took home a check for $1000, & an artist showcase. Pretty dope platform for both new and veteran DJs to not only get a chance to peep some new talent, but also get a chance to BE acknowledged for their commitment to music & creative artistry.
Special thanks to Angela Watts of 10 Squared PR for inviting BE Magazine out & making sure I was well taken care of.Tweet
