This past week was incredibly busy for Ohio. If you're hip to it, then you know that last week (Sept. 19 - 25) was the Ohio Hip Hop Awards Homecoming Week with the actual Awards show on Sunday (September 25). FromtheOH.com was in the house to represent.
Not only did we get to hang out with the legendary group, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony on Friday but we also went backstage to check out the concert from a more personal level. The guys were not only hilarious within their own rights but they were very down to earth sitting backstage with their support system of family and friends.
We networked, met some amazing artists from various cities as well as saw some incredible performances. We started off by taking photos of the nominees and VIP attendees on the red carpet which lasted for HOURS ... although incredibly entertaining I was also beat. My other blog contributor, Letha B. and I decided to head in and take our seats as soon as we could to enjoy the show. Radio Personalities, Micah Dixon from Z107.9 and Ryan "ShugaBooga" Gilkerson from Nerve DJ's did a fantastic job at not only keeping the show moving but also entertaining the audience. Micah with her stunning wardrobe changes and Ryan with his jokes was more than enough to keep everyone satisfied.
Thank you to every single OHHA staff member that consistently make these shows possible regardless of the criticism they always face from nominees who didn't win. Congratulations are definitely in order for every person nominated, it is a feat in itself to be recognized not just in your city, but in your state and last but not least; Congratulations to all of the winners. Take a bow and keep grinding .. this is just the beginning.
Check out the gallery of photos below. These are just a few of what we captured through the lens of FromtheOH.com
