Ohio Hip Hop Awards...





Ohio is a very interesting place, with a star basketball player,a city that is the 3rd poorest in the nation,the home of John Legend,Dave Chappelle,Bone thugs,Halle Berry,etc it shouldnt be hard to believe that we have our own hip hop awards...


Yes hip hop awards...

It has been going for a little less than 5years but it does draw local and national attention.

I am also honored to say I know past nominees(#shoutout to Justice,Ciandra,Lady T,etc)...
Every year it gets bigger and showcases this states talent,which often doesnt get much attention due to our geogrpahic location....Hard being between east coast and southern rap. The midwest hip hop sound is a hard one to diagnois when you have Bow Wow,Nelly,Twista,Kanye all repping the same area.
Now on to business....

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of
