OVERVIEW AND BACKGROUND OF URBAN THRESHOLD'S UNDERGROUND MUSIC AWARDS

Urban Threshold's Underground Music Awards is a national award show that breaks all of the rules of conventionalism. Unlike the Grammy Awards or the Billboard Music Awards, the Underground Music Awards were created to acknowledge and honor the achievements and contributions of unsigned and independent artists within the urban music scene. Every year there are incredible records released by independent labels and artists. Very rarely do the institutional accolades of the music industry reach or embrace independent music or the community of artists and fans who now represent 25% of all global music sales. Hence, the Underground Music Awards Program was born to fill that void.

Past winners and Honorees of Urban Threshold's Underground Music Awards include: Michael Bivins, Mr. Cheeks, Ice T, Naughty By Nature, EPMD, Lupe Fiasco, MIMS, Styles P, Kid Capri, MOP, Papoose, Remy Martin, Killah Priest, Afu-Rah, Kool G. Rap, Lil Mama, DJ Red Alert, Ralph McDaniels, Cormega, DJ Kay Slay, Saigon, Lumidee, and many more..

After 9 very successful years, Urban Threshold Enterprises Inc. continues to make it their top priority to bring together music professionals, artists, DJ's, fans, media outlets and more to network, build relationships and celebrate the culture of independent urban music. Urban Threshold's Underground Music Awards combines the elements of an award show, a music conference, an informational seminar, and an entertainment showcase into one lively event.

Moreover, It features and participants, from all over the world, representing the full spectrum of underground Hip Hop, R&B, Gospel, and Reggae music and fashion as a global phenomenon.

The 3 day event is packed with panel discussions, artist showcases, networking opportunities, product demonstrations and the awards ceremony.

Urban Threshold's 11th Annual Underground Music Awards Was A Huge Success!

The event was held at the famous BB King's Theater in the heart of NYC's Times Square. The award show was a star-studded mega musical extravaganza with performances by the nominees, Hip Hop legends and appearances by film and fashion celebrities. It was another sold out crowd with close to 1000 people in attendance. The award show was hosted by the super sexy and talented Chia Schonberg, She did an amazing job as the hostess! And the DJ for the evening was DJ Styles who was incredible.

The Underground Music Awards highlights the best unsigned and independent artists within the urban music scene. Moreover, the 11th Annual UMA's honored Music Legends Mr.Cheeks and Michael Bivins. The Hip Hop Icons gave valuable advice to the aspiring artists in attendance and they put on a scorching performance.
