2017 Madison Hip-Hop Awards Winners #MHHA17

UCAN's flagship event, the Madison Hip-Hop Awards made it through eight years! Thank you to everyone who showed up and showed out to make last night awards show one of the best we've ever had! We give a special thank you to the Majestic Theater for hosting us.

We can't say enough about our video team, Hinckley Productions! If you have any video needs, Natalie Hinckley is the woman you want to see. She is a beast and her team does amazing work. Hinckley covered our entire awards show complete with a live stream and also produced the cyphers (stay tuned for those videos!).

We also extend a huge thank you to China Moon and Bartender 608 Intoxicologists and Cocktail Caterers! If you have a private party or event, there really isn't anywhere else to look.

Finally, we thank Elijah McCloskey of Freewheel Bikes and Lothlorien Coop. Elijah has been a long time supporter of local Hip-Hop and we are honored to have him as a sponsor.

Thanks to Capital City Hues, our press partner this year, for exceptional coverage and support of this and so many other local events and causes. Thanks to everyone else who sponsored and supported this event and UCAN in general.
