Hot97 Family Wins at Global Spin Awards
The First Annual Global Spin Awards took place last night at NY Times Center hosted by Sway and Fatman Scoop. Legendary DJ's such as Kid Capri, DJ Red Alert, DJ Scratch, and Legendary Achievement Award winning GrandMaster Flash was also present for this amazing event.
A few Hot97 DJ's won awards for their own respective categories. DJ Funk Master Flex won National Mixshow DJ of the Year. DJ Camilo came up with a big win as North East Club DJ of the Year. DJ Enuff and his Heavy Hitter crew took home DJ Coalition of the Year.
Fred the Godson and Marsha Ambrosius both touched the stage during this prestigious award show. Diddy kicked off the show with a video message to the DJ's touching on the importance of the DJ in our culture followed by a poem by Amanda Diva.
Highlight of the night is when DJ Scratch, DJ Premier, and DJ Cash Money paid a tribute to GrandMaster Flash before he received his Legendary Achievement Award. Cash Money and Scratch even took turns using the scratch techniques GrandMaster Flash perfected. Then they went back and forth on one set turntables that brought the crowd to their feet. Last night was definitely a special and needed night for the DJ's. Congratulations to all the Hot97 family that took home an award.
