Tuesday evening's 11th Annual Mixtape Awards occurred in New York City. The event, which was started in 1995, by the late Justo Faison was free of violence this year, something that has marred the legacy of the awards in recent years.
Winners included Crooked I [click to view] as "Best West Coast Mixtape Artist," Styles P in the east coast version of the category, with Lil Wayne rounding out the southern equivalent.
DJ Drama and Don Cannon's The Aphilliates took home "Best Mixtape Team," as well as Gangsta Grillz taking "Best Series," "Best Dirty South DJ" (DJ Drama) and "Best Mixtape Producer" (Don Cannon) [click to read].
The Mixtape Awards also honored Doug E. Fresh's Get Fresh Crew affiliate DJ Barry Bee ("Mixtape Legends Award"), Tony Touch ("Mixtape Pioneers Award") and the DJ Red Alert Award to DJ Jazzy Joyce.
