The mission of the NOLA Underground Hip-Hop Awards is to give appropriate appreciation, respect and honor to local artists who exemplify the essential aspects of not just any particular popular culture, but urban culture & to showcase those artists who exhibit the very best of New Orleans Underground Hip-Hop.
New Orleans is a hotbed of prolific talent, including Lil Wayne, Jay Electronica and Frank Ocean. The NOLA Underground Hip Hop Awards celebrates local Hip-Hop artists and the honorees that have created great music and utilized their experiences to give themselves exposure despite industry obstacles.
Generations of New Orleans' Hip-Hop artists will come together to bridge the music gap for one exceptional night. The city will unite to set off the showcase with raw style and flavor; that sparked and inspired the sound of so many artists world-wide.
Impeccable artists thrive with a distinct Southern demeanor and confidence delivering pride, pain and revelry in the booth. With respected references and influences from past artists like Soulja Slim, Tim Smooth & Magnolia Shorty, New Orleans hip-hop music is on the rise! Hip-hop music originated as a form of musical expression meant to empower and educate its listeners. As the culture grew and diversified, it took many different paths. But, like most forms of art, the music genre is making a strong comeback to its roots. Many believe the foundation of hip-hop has died. Well, there is no better place than New Orleans to revive the true essence of hip-hop.
NOLA Underground Hip-Hop Awards is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of local hip-hop. NOLA Underground Hip-Hop Awards feature the top tier of talented local artists. For Sponsorship or VIP information, email nolaundergroundawards@
