Mach-Hommy’s, Westside Gunn curated, ‘Pray For Haiti’ walked away with the ‘Best Album’ award.
Mach’s first album with Griselda since, 2017’s outstanding, ‘H.B.O’ has him riding over wonderfully selected production from Nicholas Craven, Conductor Williams, Camouflage Monk, Danny LeFlare, Sadhu Gold, Chelsea Gee Messiah Muzik and Green Lantern as well as features from Westside Gunn and Tha God Fahim.

Nas and Lauryn Hill’s, beautiful, collaboration ‘Nobody’ picked up the ‘Best Song’ award.
The track, taken from Nas’ ‘King’s Disease II’ album, has him and Ms. Hill on top form over another exceptional beat courtesy of Hit-Boy.
A track with a real nostalgic feel that features nothing but grown man (and woman) raps supplied by both Nas and Hill.

And last, but not least, UK Hip-Hop/Grime artist Lloyd Luther’s, phenomenal, ‘Re Pro Gram’ took home the ‘Best Mixtape/EP’ award.
Luther’s first project since ‘Dubs of The Mad, Skint and British’, which dropped in 2017, has him at his absolute finest.
Lyrically this mixtape shows why Luther is one of the UK’s best wordsmiths with deep, and conscious, bars over brilliant production.
