Midwest Urban Music Awards & Rappers Ball

V .A. Productions & Management Group in conjunction with D.U.B. L.I.F.E. Entertainment, hosted Chicago's hottest night of live entertainment and awards on Saturday June 12, 2010.   This celebration allowed members of the Midwest urban music community an opportunity to enjoy a night of networking, showmanship and peer acknowledgment. No venue was more appropriate to host this event than Chicago's own historic treasure; The Chicago Regal Theatre. The Midwest Rapper’s Ball was conceptualized and produced by Dianna Fourte to celebrate the growing and ever changing culture of Hip-Hop in the Midwest. It also served as a vehicle to bridge and encourages the spirit of cross promotion between DJ Coalitions, Program Directors, Independent Artists, Management and labels. The red carpet was out, the video was rolling, and the cameras were flashing.  The media roster included over 15 of the Midwest's hottest urban internet, social media and print journalist. For one night, 79th street looked like Los Angeles Blvd. 

1029 W 35th St Chicago IL.

Of course, The Inaugural Midwest Rapper’s Ball couldn't have been possible without the support of our gracious sponsors. Six reputable companies chose from various sponsorship packages, and aligned together with this event, to make it a major success. The evening was launched with a private V.I.P. reception which featured complimentary buffet, drinks, gift bags and other "goodies". The reception was attended by area leaders, music industry, corporate executives, award nominees, media and special guests.
