Imagine an award show just dedicated to underground artists. Those who do not have deals with major labels and who may or may not ever get deals, but make the music for the love of it. We would need a governing body (sort of like the grammy’s) and representatives in every corner of the USA (and abroad once things got bigger) to constantly scout and listen for talent. Each state would nominate their top artists and these artists would then be placed into categories in the national award show. Of course we’d have to film it on HD and even have a small to medium size theater to hold the event. Could we ever have that much unity in Hip Hop? Could it be that organized?
And then I wake up :-).
