The First Annual Global Spin Awards took place last night at The New York Time Center in NY,NY. Dj’s from across the country came together to celebrate who most people don’t acknowledge, THE DJ.
With legendary Djs in the building including Grandmaster Flash, DJ Red Alert, DJ Scratch, and Kid Capri, the show kicked off with a special message from Diddy and a poem by MTV/Vh1 correspondent Amanda Diva. Hosting the first annual show was MTV/Shade 45 host Sway Calloway and Fatman Scoop.
The show honored DJ Red Alert with a tribute video, Kid Capri got on the ones and twos and had the whole audience bobbing their heads along, and performances by Fred The godson and Marsha Ambrosius. The highlight of the show was definitely DJ Priemere, DJ Cash Money and DJ Scratch all spinning together, paying tribute to Grandmaster Flash. Check out the winners below.
