The 2001 Source Hip-Hop Music Awards

The 2001 Source Hip-Hop Awards aired on August 28th and the show was hosted by rapper, Busta Rhymes and actress, Vivica A. Fox. DMX got the Miami party started as all the hip-hoppers in the house "raised the roof."

One of the first things I noticed is that people dress down for The Source Awards. The fashions were mostly sporty street wear and nobody was dressed up - except for Lil' Kim. This year's fashion shocker was a leather ensemble with leather star patches strategically covering herself up top.

The night was filled with performances by some of your faves like P. Diddy and The Bad Boy Family, Ludacris, Ja Rule, M.O.P. and Nelly with St. Lunatics. My fave performances of the evening was Eminem and D12 doing Purple Hills and of course the queen of hip-hop, Mary J. Blige. Just about every performer came out of a car or had girls climbing out of a car and it kind of got old after the third time.

There were a couple of special awards given out during the show. The first was the Image Award which was presented to Lil' Romeo's dad, Master P., for all his extraordinary accomplishments and for being a role model. L.L. Cool J. was also honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his long-running contribution to hip-hop music.

Lil' Romeo didn't win anything but the cutie stepped up to the mic as a presenter and mentioned that his CD, Lil' Romeo, just went 2x platinum. Someone who did win big, though, was Nelly who won best album of the year for Country Grammar beating out Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP. Nelly also snagged the New Artist of the Year award.

Here is a list of the peeps who walked away with a Source Award:

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
