YO! RAPS & YO! PROMOTIONS OFFICIALLY SPONSOR THE JUSTOS MIXTAPE AWARDS 2011
For Immediate Release — The Justos Mixtape Awards are gearing up for their 15th anniversary, officially sponsored by Europe’s #1 urban magazine Yo! Raps, www.yoraps.com, and full service marketing and promotion company Yo! Promotions, www.yo-pr.com.
“The next award show is going to be epic!” says DJ Slayer, the company’s new Owner and Chair. DJ Slayer was a close friend and brother to the Founder, Justo, who passed away tragically in 2005. It’s been a few years since the last mixtape award show. The Justos’ 12th Annual Mixtape Awards was held April 29, 2008 at The Symphony Space in New York City. Since then there has been another transition of ownership but one that has been well embraced by the mixtape community.
A.R. expounds, “We’re coming back with a full plate. The Justos Mixtape Awards is thee brand that recognizes mixtape industry professionals around the world. That’s why we are especially exited to have Europe’s #1 urban magazine, Yo! Raps, as our media partner.”
Yo! Raps and Yo! Promotions Founder/CEO Kai Denninger says, “Being an official sponsor for the 2011 Justos Mixtape Awards is an honor for us. Yo! Raps and Yo! Promotions always stay connected to the movement and the artists and DJs who run this movement.”
The Justos are scheduled to take place in the 4th quarter of this year with several events preceding including the 2nd Celebrity DJ Pool Tournament presented by DJ Slayer; an official Nominee Ceremony; The 2nd Mixtape Masters Marathon (M-III); The Street Album Top 10 Showcase, and other special events.
The 15th Anniversary logo was designed by multiple Justos Awards winner Miami Kaos, who also has the “Mixtape Graphics Designer Of The Year” award named in his honor. Miami Kaos says, “It was a [his] pleasure and an honor to take part in the design. To everyone in mixtape game, The Justos are our Grammys”.
