In an effort to support families during the holiday season and also to honor the legendary pioneers of the Memphis Rap/Hip-Hop scene, Unified Memphis Artist Association is holding it’s first fundraiser and awards show “Hope For The Holidays”. Founder Jackson Brown and former Blackground Records Executive stated, “The main concept of the Unified Memphis Artist Association for it’s first project is to get artists together and to get also the artists themselves, businesses and even other families to sponsor a family in need during the holidays. We’re trying to help at least 50 families and possibly more. Anyone can sponsor a family just by either calling the radio stations and letting them know or just by calling me”.
The event will be honoring those such as Eightball & MJG, Three 6 Mafia, Jazze Pha, Ray The J, Freakmaster, Gangsta Pat and many many others. There will also be performances by the legendary “Scarface” Al Kapone (Hustle & Flow music producer “Whoop That Trick”), Gangsta Boo (formerly of Three 6 Mafia), Mista Ian, Shane Gutta (Cash Money Records), Young Snipe, DJ Squeeky and more.
The UMA Benefit Concert and Awards Show will be held at the Plush Club located at 380 Beale St. Memphis, TN (Downtown) on December 16, 2005 at 8:00 PM and doors open at 7:00PM. Tickets are $20.
