PS: They were NOT allowed to vote for themselves or their bands. ONLY when 2 MEMBERS OF THEIR BANDS WERE NOMINATED in the same category were members given the option to vote for ONE pick.
HARMONIK, that was too easy even for a 3rd Grader:lol:
I salute the 2 panel members (James Cardozo of TVice & Money G of GABEL) who voted for Beljaz. you guys are brave and I'm so so curious for an explaination as to why you voted for Beljaz.
I'm sure the boyz of BELJAZ will be very appreciative of that Gesture.
While I congratulate HARMONIK, I see that the South Side seems to have this type of Award on Lockdown........the 2007 Winner- Gabel (Another southern baby)
Maybe the NorthEast Groups are too busy with their 9-5's or Busy Daydreamin', I had hoped to see TEMPO get some nominations.....
Well, Se La Vie
