The Midwest Urban Music Awards and Rapper's Ball was conceptualized 5 years ago by Dianna Fourte to celebrate the growing and ever changing culture of Hip-Hop in the Midwest. The event was previously known as the Midwest Rappers Ball & Awards, and featured some of the hottest Indie artist such as LEP Bogus Boys, Hot Stylz, Bo Deal, Quest Mcody, Crucial Conflict, Ruka Puff, Hot 2 Def and more. The event has elevated each year and continues to grow and we welcome the partnership of O.T.B. Organizing group as we celebrate our 5th Year! This wonderful event also serves as a vehicle to bridge and encourages the spirit of cross promotion between DJ Coalitions, Program Directors, Independent Artists, Management, labels and other aspects of the culture.
Of course, The M.U.M.A.'s and The Inaugural Rapper’s Ball could not be possible without OTB Organizing Group & D.U.B. L.I.F.E. Entertainment, the official Partners of these two great events . These reputable companies aligned together with this event, to make it a major success.
