Who Will Be Named Best Reggae Artist At The 2010 Soul Train Awards?
Nuff respect to the original Don (Cornelius). The Soul Train Awards ceremony takes place this Wedensday in Atlanta. And while Usher and Alicia Keys lead all nominees this year, we’re focused one of the newer categories. Last year Sean Paul walked away with the first ever Soul Train Award for Best Reggae Artist. This year’s nominees include Gyptian, Mr. Vegas, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Vybz Kartel, Gramps Morgan, and Jah Cure—a diverse mix of roots reggae, soul, lovers’ rock and straight-up dancehall, and a better representation than most other major awards shows. Plus not only will the Best Reggae Artist trophy be awarded during the broadcast, but Gyptian is scheduled to perform live.
The Soul Train Awards premiere on Centric and BET November 28 at 9pm. and Boomshots will be on the scene reporting live and direct. Mr. Vegas is . But you don’t have to wait to cast your vote. Who do you think will take it this year? And who should take it? (If the award were for biggest hit, then Gyptian would win hands down. But this award is for best artist.) Take a minute to refresh your memory with this Boomshots selection, then leave a comment to cast your vote.
