4th Annual Twin Cities Urban Music Awards 2016 Recap


Twin Cities URBAN Music Awards 2016 was a success! It was a fun night as many Twin Cities based artists came out to celebrate and many won awards. The event had red carpet interviews by DJ Mr Peter Parker of Go 95.3 along with performances by many of the winning artists. HipHopClub.biz was proud to sponsor this event. Events like these are important to a hip hop scene as it brings the players in that community together to be recognized for their hard work over the previous year.
