ASCAP Honors Cardi B With Songwriter Of The Year Award And T.I. As Voice Of The Culture

Published

on

“I have always said that our culture is our greatest asset…I am a proud product of it and a fearless protector of it.”

That quote, from Tip “T.I.” Harris’s acceptance speech for the inaugural ASCAP Voice of the Culture Award, eloquently captures the proud spirit of the urban music community. That spirit was on full display during the 2019 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards, our celebration of the biggest ASCAP hip-hop, R&B and gospel music of the past year.

T.I. was presented the award by political commentator and advocate Angela Rye, for the positive impact he has made through his music and philanthropy. And he was just one of the elite names on stage during the magical night. Reigning hip-hop queen Cardi B added an ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophy to her long list of accolades – the first time the award has gone to a female rapper. Universal Music Publishing Group and Warner Chappell Music each received ASCAP Publisher of the Year Awards. Co-writers of Top Rap Song “Nice for What” and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Song “Boo’d Up” were on hand to pick up their awards; the inspirational anthem “Won’t He Do It” was named Top Gospel Song.

As part of the Mother’s Day Good Music Festival, SJ Presents an electrifying, all-star concert with New York’s hip-hop cultural icons representing the diverse flavors of New York – See JA RULE, ASHANTI, FAT JOE, REMY MA, and LIL’ MO as they come to Hulu Theater at MSG on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 8 p.m. It’s time to get out and to some of the best. 
 
See hitmakers: Ja Rule (“Always on Time”), Ashanti (“Foolish”), Joe (“Lean Back”), Remy Ma (“Ante Up”), Lil’ Mo (“Superwoman”).

Four-time GRAMMY Award-nominated rapper and singer-songwriter Ja Rule has released six Top 10 albums, including Rule 3:36 and Pain Is Love. With those LPs and others, he’s earned a series of hit singles that made the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including “Between Me and You” (with Christina Milian), “Ain’t It Funny” (with Jennifer Lopez), and three on which he collaborated with Ashanti: “Mesmerize,” “Wonderful,” and the GRAMMY-nominated No. 1 hit, “Always on Time.”

Singer-songwriter Ashanti, often referred to as the “Princess of Hip-Hop and R&B,” is known for vocals as sultry as they are sweet. Her debut album, Ashanti, won a 2003 GRAMMY for Best Contemporary R&B Album and spawned the smash hit single, “Foolish.” Since then, Ashanti has sold over 15 million records worldwide and produced more Billboard Hot 100 hits like “Rock Wit U” and “Rain on Me.” On her most recent LP, Braveheart, she continues her R&B journey, this time integrating touches of electro, trap, and urban pop.

Longtime friends and collaborators since the 90s, Fat Joe and Remy Ma will perform their solo hits and collaborations, including the GRAMMY-nominated “All The Way Up” single (Best Rap Performance and Best Song) and Joe’s #1 hit, “Lean Back.”
