MemphisRap.com’s website was recently awarded the “Web Site of the Year” award by the Southern Entertainment Awards (SEA) on January 28, 2007, having been nominated and voted on by fans and industry people across the South and across the globe.
The (MemphisRap.com) founders and representatives who contributed to the creation of the site are all to be congratulated, with special recognition going to the representatives who keep their feet firm and connected with those who play a role in the Industry and in the streets.
In response to receiving the award, M Town Luv of MemphisRap.com provided the following:
“I am glad we have been awarded this prestigious award and I was even more glad to see the Industry that’s representing the South come together at the award show. We are based in Memphis which I feel is the ‘hub of the South’ and we plan to make good of this honor by representing the South to the fullest. Now what I would like to see is more money being invested into the South so that we (the South) won’t lose what we’ve gained and so we’ll keep moving forward. Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas and all southern states: these are the people that traffic our website seeking breaking new artists in the South as well as their favorite Southern artists and we (these southern states) are all where Hip-Hop has been living for sometime now and we’re constantly birthing new talent. It’s now up to the labels, both major and independent, to break these artists, by marketing them in front of our outstanding number of people interested in them. I feel if we come together and market ourselves in the media forms that support us by putting us in front of these millions of targeted consumers, we could make major moves, utilizing a now major media market. East Coast invests in East Coast, West invests in West, the South should invest in the South to keep sites like MemphisRap.com, Word of South, awards like SEA, and magazines like Ozone and Streetmasters growing to further support the whole marketing of the South to the world!”
