2011 Martin Luther King County Executive's Awards for Excellence in Hip Hop
MUSICA Entertainment is proud to present the 2011 Martin Luther King County Executive's Awards for Excellence in Hip Hop.  

Monday January 17th 2011 will be our 7th year of celebrating Hip Hop and its impact on music, diversity, lifestyle, and culture worldwide. This event honors the legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Hip Hop & Arts in general are still a voice for social change.  

Through Hip Hop and the Arts, we seek to honor the legacy of Dr. King by showcasing artists' voices and talent.  

Featuring:
The King County Executives Awards For Excellence in Hip Hop presented by King County Executive Dow Constantine.
Honoring the spirit and legacy of Dr. King, the award acknowledges and honors innovative performance, community service and entrepreneurial achievement by locally based members of the hip-hop community whose work has had significant impact in King County.

This year's event also includes a special tribute to the late Roberto Maestas.

Musical guests include a line-up of King County's outstanding vocalists: Mycle Wastman, Josie Howell, Lady "A", and Dionna Long.  Performances also include Hip Hop artist "Tendai & Young Fast" from Seattle, along with Tacoma Rap group "Young n' Brave", who recently performed on BET's 106 & Park.  Everett based jazz ensemble "New Shades of Grey", Gospel rap artist OnlyOneWizer and Sheela Moss also perform.
