Re: “Best Hip-Hop Club

Come on CCP we just talked about this last week. And y'all agreed with me that there isn't a hip hop scene especially at these particular clubs. Totally not with it!!!!

Re: “Best Hip-Hop Club

There are no Hip Hop clubs in downtown Charleston. Just because a club/bar may play a few Hip Hop songs does not qualify them as a Hip Hop club. And just because you've seen people of color in a certain establishment (or because the DJ is a person of color) doesn't make the club a Hip Hop club either. This category is a lie and needs to be removed.

Re: “Best Hip-Hop Club

I think the criteria was, based on the winner and runner-up: "have you ever seen more than one group of people there with at least one person of color in each while Hypnotized played."

As covered in previous CCP columns, downtown doesn't welcome the hip hop business, and it doesn't welcome the hip hop crowd. Playing songs from rap albums that I bought during the Clinton administration does not a hip hop club make.

Re: “Best Local Hip-Hop Artist

Louie D is NOT a Hip Hop artist. After all the artist who have had interviews in the paper (Anfernee, Benjamin Starr, Matt Monday, Salis) this is the best "Hip Hop" artist you could find. Someone who isn't even remotely hip hop. I have been on the cover of the Charleston City Paper for Hip Hop and no even a nomination. Once again I am soooo disappointed in the paper. This was NOT a representation of the city what so ever, and I thought the Charleston City Paper was just that. Do better

Re: “Best Hip-Hop Club

Bravo, Charleston City Paper. Please tell me the criteria for a venue to be considered a "Hip Hop Club." (Oh, and not only a Hip Hop Club, but THE BEST Hip Hop Club.) Downtown Charleston has ZERO Hip Hop clubs. It really intrigues me how a publication that has capitalized on Hip Hop artists, and covered Hip Hop based stories, would have the guts to create a category of something that does not exist. I am not concerned about the nomination process, I have questions about the category creation process. When these categories were created, did anyone stop and say "Oh wait, there is NO Hip Hop club in Downtown Charleston." "Oh wait, we wrote a WHOLE story about how Hip Hop event planners can BARELY find a venue that would open doors to play Hip Hop." I do expect more from the Charleston City Paper. When you know better, you do better. Charleston City Paper, you knew better. How The Commodore won this award is beyond me. No shade, just facts. The Commodore is NOT a Hip Hop club. If the winner and runner-up are indeed Hip Hop clubs, then I will be the first one through the door on Friday night, expecting the wondrous sounds of Future or Lil Boosie to greet me at the doe'! #BOC17 #BestReachOf2017 #StretchArmstrong

Re: “Best Musician

Would it be possible to put Mr. Rucker in the HOF and retire his number for the sake of these awards? Yeah, we get it... the guy that has been making platinum records since Slick Willie's first term is a good singer. Beautiful voice, everyone knows it... like everyone in the United States.

Re: “Best Comic Book Shop

Thank you so much to all of the fans of Park Circle Comics! As a part time business concentrating on selling the best vintage comics from the Golden Age to the present to our valued customers it is an honor to come in second place. We have worked hard to carve out a niche in the south east and especially our home in North Charleston by providing the best product at the best prices and this recognition only inspires us to keep going and growing! Thanks Charleston!

Re: “Best Exhibit of 2016

this is great that Patriots Point Vietnam Exhibit was voted best of 2016 but for "reporting" the Charleston City Paper gets a bad grade. The wasted page your website has as a result of clicking on the link for the Best Exhibit of 2016 is pretty empty. Sure its states who the winner is, but NO pictures? NO explanation? NO nothing? C'mon guys you gotta elaborate a little bit.
