Audio Dope: Bout Dat Online ‘Audio Dope Awards 2020’ winners!!!

Last night, during the series finale of WCDJC’S ‘Audio Dope Show’ on Radio WIGWAM, we announced the winners of the 3rd annual ‘Audio Dope Awards’!!!

If you missed the show here is the list of this year’s winners!!!

Best Album: Conway The Machine – From King To A GOD.

Conway The Machine provided his fans with his most diverse, and open, work on his debut album which serves as a prelude to, his major label debut, ‘God Don’t Make Mistakes’ that is due to drop on Shady soon (we hope!). The album shows that Conway could potentially have the same cross over appeal as 50 Cent did during his ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ days. Gritty street music that could grab everyone’s attention. For proof just hit play on, the Erick Sermon and Rockwilder produced, ‘Forever Droppin Tears’ to hear what we’re talking about.

Best Song: Westside Gunn – Shawn vs. Flair.

The Griselda onslaught continues as Westside Gunn teamed up with, the legendary, DJ Premier for what can only be described as a piece of art from his ‘Pray For Paris’ album. Gunn’s signature flow, and wordplay, over a classic Preemo beat hits the mark. Plus Gunn made Preemo watch Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair’s classic Wrestlemania match to get him in the headspace to make this beat so adds even more brilliance to the track.

Best Mixtape or EP: Lupe Fiasco – House.

Lupe teamed up with, producer, Kaelin Ellis for his incredibly dope, 5-track EP, ‘House’ that has Lupe going fully into concept mode and not so much flexing his lyrical muscle but brilliantly going for a gentle stroll with it. Superb tracks like ‘Dinosaurs’ and ‘Shoes’ only highlight Lupe’s intelligence on the mic over Ellis’s, dream-like, production. Lupe is definitely on a different wave to the rest of Hip-Hop and this project proves it.
