The 3rd Annual Global Spin Awards

GSAs 2014
-A +A


Tuesday, Nov. 18th, 2014-NYC

The 3rd Annual Global Spin Awards, hosted by the lovely LaLa Anthony, was held at New World Stages in NYC.

The star-studded, black tie affair spawned a red carpet flooded with celebrities and music's elite, including Diddy and Kevin Lyles.

The red carpet was followed by a premium cocktail hour sponsored by CIROC premium vodka.  Shawn Prez, Founder of the GSAs, as well as executive of Power Moves Inc. and V.P. of Bad Boy Entertainment, was hands-on all evening to ensure that his event went exactly as planned.

From tickets and seating to lighting and music, Mr. Prez showed the same hustle that caught Diddy's eye and sky-rocketed his career at Bad Boy.  Tonight it was all about the DJs, who are rarely given the accolades they deserve for the major contribution they make to the music industry as a whole.

As stated by DJ KHALED, "We are not just DJs!  We are producers, career-breakers, entrepreneurs, moguls and CEOs."  Thirty-one awards were presented to DJs from all genres of music, in the only ceremony that exclusively celebrates them and their accomplishments among their peers.

Celebrity presenters included MC LYTE, Ne-Yo, Michael Rappaport, Mila J and Michael Bivins.  Notable awards:  DJ of the Year and DJ producer of the Year:  DJ MUSTARD,  DJ album of the Year: DJ KHALED for "Suffering from Success",  CELEBRITY DJ of the Year: Jermaine Dupri,  REGIONAL MIXSHOW DJ of the Year: DJ SELF,  REGGAE DJ of the Year: DJ NORIE,  FEMALE DJ of the Year: DJ CARISMA,  LATIN DJ of the Year: DJ CAMILO and TURNTABLIST of the Year: DJ SCRATCH.

The recipients of the highest honors of the evening were DJ FUNKMASTER FLEX, who was presented with the LEGENDARY DJ AWARD and DJ PREMIER who received the LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD.  Congratulations to all nominees and awardees!  It was an awesome and exciting night of entertainment and music, topped of by O.T. GENASIS's performance of his smash hit, "COCO".

There is no doubt the GSAs will continue to grow each year and draw much-deserved attention to the DJs, who work tirelessly to bring us the music we love.  They are truly the backbone of the music industry!  Thanks to Shawn Prez and his genius, they will no longer be over-looked.  Kudos to him for filling this void.  The Global Spin Awards will air on REVOLT TV on November 25th, 2014 at 8pm.  Don't miss it!
