The 10th Annual Mixtape Awards is going down Thursday, December 7 at Harlem's Apollo Theater.
DJ Green Lantern has pulled himself up quite a bit since his situation with 50 Cent and Jadakiss. After he stepped down as Eminem's DJ to avoid further conflict, no one ever thought he would come back as hard as he did until he hit the mixtape scene with a bang on Alive on Arrival (Best Mixtape of the Year nomination).
He has six nominations in total and, ironically enough, one of those he shares with DJ Kay Slay-- Kay Slay's only Justo nomination besides his Mixshow nomination. Speaking of mixshow, Whoo Kid had about four nominations, including one for his mixshow, but everyone says that his mixshow sucks. So I don't know what that's all about.
Anyways, the kid Green Lantern is killin' the competition. He's up for Best East Coast Mixtape DJ, Best Mixtape DJ, Best Mixtape Duo with Kay Slay, Best Mixtape of the Year, Best Mixtape Producer, and Best Mixtape Radio Show. Congrats; the recognition is well deserved.
And shout out to the kid Young "Sid-id-dav" (Young Sav) over at Def Jam. He's up against Atlantic Records' Sam Crespo for the Best Label Rep Award.
