Innerstate Ike at last year's awards
Last year's 5280 Hip-Hop Awards program was a spectacle in so many ways. Every single rapper, producer and videographer in the scene was on hand for the ceremony. This year's edition of the awards, slated for December 11, promises to be bigger and better than ever. For starters, it's taking place at the Paramount Theatre rather than the Red Lion Hotel, where last year's event was hosted. Page down for the list of this year's nominees.

The winners will be chosen by the number of votes received. Votes can be sent directly to: Entertainmentby1600inc@msn.com or Foepackboss@gmail.com. Voting runs from now through November 15, just a month before the ceremony on December 11. Nominees and their categories listed below.

I just don't get how anyone can openly say that they didn't do research in their community to pick artists when you're the owner of the company that has these award shows and then blame some mystery people for something they didn't do when it's your company. Stupid. It's not a real award anyway and just the simple fact that Jomeezius is not in there shows how careless they are of the music scene and who they want to promote. It's a politics crooked show meant to just rip people out of their money and push certain people I bet it will come as no surprise to when we find out the winners. The owner said we didn't go out there and find who's doing what out there in our scene......if you don't fully know, then why have an award show until you do fully know? Bullshit crooked job. It's the truth call me a hater if you want it is what it is.

Its obvious there are two sides to hip on colorado.  the side that rocks with the backpack shit, and those who rock wit the commercial hip hop shit.  Dont fucking act like there is not a dividing line.  there are a few who cross over (SP, Midas, Foodchain) but most just stayin their lane.  If you wanna be fucking known throughout colorado.  you have to stop hating of your counterparts.  its that simple

Rigged and fake. Jomeezius best producer. D-Re'll video of the year. Not mentioned because they're not in touch with the actual music scene or they choose to ignore it. Who cares.

They don't even attempt to hide how one sided this is. Sooooo irrelevant. Notice how none of these people are nominated for Westword awards, and then most of the people who are nominated for Westword awards are not nominated here. I'll take the Westword nominees. At least they recognize the REAL moves and talent from all over...

Man folk talk shit bout how nowbody support the scene but when someone does support the scene then folk talk shit about that.  And for the folks who work hard to put this award show together, for the artist that are nominated, and the artist who win this is a very RELEVANT awards show.  And to see if grow over the last 3 years and be at the Paramount Theatre is a very big deal for COLORADO HIP HOP.  Those that don't think so should try to do something to help the scene instead of complain, hate, trash talk, and bring a negative energy to something positive. Lenny-Lenn

They hate because y'all SUCK!. Colorado hip hop sucks.  Mainstream hip hop sucks. If you like lil' anyone, except lil' flip, you are the fucking problem. Who in this state compares to Hednodic, Brother Ali, The Micronauts, (old) Jay-Z, Outkast, Mars Ill, J-Live, The Grouch?  Step up your game if you want people to appreciate.
