January 24th marked the day of the 4th Midwest Best $1000 showcase at Studio 618 with artist from across America meeting up all in East St.Louis. Some artist came from as far west as East L.A. ( Hard Head of Hard Head Productions), as far south as Dallas, Texas, (Mr.Go Get it, & Curtis Mayz), as far north as Hamond Indiana (Liv Free and company), and as far east as Dayton, Ohio (Biggs, and T. Hunt), and parts in between.
With over 20 acts total competing for a cash prize of $1000 the competition gets heated and there can only be 2 official winners, and after about 5 minutes of deliberation judges chose Deezy the Paper Boy to be the official judges choice for the Midwest Best $1000 showcase walking away with at least $500.00. A decision that many in the crowd agreed with even before the announcement, with many artist saying through out the night they believe he had it. This was the 1st time some one outside of St.Louis won either half of the Midwest Best Showcase, which may open the door for other out of town artist to have the confidence to bring bucks back to their city.
Another 1st came when it was time to announce the artist who brought the most people, 100 Fam Ent won the peoples choice with over 20 people in the crowd, but, as we announced the winner no one with 100 Fam Ent was in the building to represent. Making this the first time we were attempting to give money to artist that weren’t there. With them missing their time slot earlier that night (many were wanting them disqualified) and not being there to claim their cash prize, a compromise was made to find them at a later date and announce their winnings, and splitting the winnings with artist with the second most people in the building, who had a few less than 20 people in the building Karma Blo, of Black and Legally Owned Music Group. 10-15 minutes after announcing the winnings 100 Fam Ent reappeared and received their winnings, with other promotional prizes added.
with all of these new 1st happening that made this quarters Midwest Best the weirdest Midwest Best ever with maybe weirder ones to come.
