Mixed reactions over Hiphopworld awards 2008 nominees list.. as nominee party hots ups

Ever since the 2008 Hiphopworld Award’s organizers unveiled their nominees list for the prestigious awards there have been mixed reactions from the public. Although the nominees’ list have received accolade from most stakeholders, some die hard Hiphop fans have somewhat have questioned the screening process adapted by the screening committee in assembling the list of top contenders for the Best Rap Album category.

From public reactions, trend’tainment gathered that while some Hiphop music fans were irritated by the fact that Ruggedman’s sophomore, Ruggedy Baba did not make a nomination, others were disgruntled that Sasha’s humdrum debut was listed among the best five critically acclaimed rap albums. The news that  Dj Jimmy Jatts’s  rap compilation/mixtape, The Definition, made the nomination list didn’t augur well with many critics as well as Rap fans who also argued that although lyrical egghead, Modenine’s Euplirubus Unum deserved a nomination, the album was released way before the year under review ( the year being December 2006 – Nov 2007).

Sources indicated that Ruggedman’s conspicuous absence in the Best Rap Album category was indeed an oversight. Sources also stated that the screening committee had critically reviewed all entries and that the emergence of Tha Rapman Beginz (Terry Tha Rapman), Euplirubus Unum (Modenine), The Definition (Dj Jimmy Jatt), and First Lady (Sasha) and as major contenders for the Best Rap Album Award was only an indication of unavailability of rap materials in the year under review.

However,  fans,  critics and stake holders alike have kept their murmurings aside and are looking forward to the HiphopWorld Awards Nominee Beach Party that will hosted by the awards organizers on the 14th of March, the eve to the main event.
