Santos Party House, a well-known venue in the heart of Chinatown (NYC) made history on October 18th after housing the first annual award show for the Deans List Tour. Outside the club, a line filled with nominees, peers and supporters awaited entry past the black velvet ropes, into one of the dopest red-carpet-themed experiences, that the underground realm of NYC has probably ever had to offer.
If you were searching for the typical BET drama and VMA shadiness, Santos was clearly not the place to be, because the atmosphere sparked nothing but support and respect for all those who were nominated, awarded and recognized. While Dj Blackout set the mood throughout the night on the ones and twos, the ballot presented accolades for Best Spoken Word Artist, Best Dancer(s), Best Comedian, Best Male Vocalist, Best Female Vocalist, Best Producer, Best Group, Best Female Hip Hop artist and Best Male Hip Hop artist.
Along with the award ceremony there was some unforgettable performances given by R.Q.TEK, She Real, Born Free Music Group, Zeyi, ONSM@SH and many others to rap up a very special night. Who else to thank but Mr. Deans List Tour himself, Scott Morris, Mor.Bookings and D2LAL (Destined To Leave A Legacy) who constructed and brought to life the entire extravaganza. BLACK Magazine would like to send a warm congratulations to all the winners and artists who were recognized for their hard work and success, we’ll be looking forward to next year.
