From First Dirt:
A.R.A.B.'s Sammie Nomination
Every year, Sacramento News and Review holds an award celebration for local musicians of all genres, letting fans vote on who should be awarded the coveted SAMMIE Award. The time has come for the 2010 SAMIMIE's and the nominations are out. Local emcee, A.R.A.B., has been selected as one of Sacramento's Best Emcee's and is calling all his fans and supporters to vote for him and what he stands for at http://www.newsreview.com/sacramento/ballot/sammies10. He promotes a positive yet honest approach to hip-hop and does not sway from his feelings about being real and being respected in this industry, as well as being a devoted father while staying active in perusing new opportunities.
This nomination is yet another item to add to A.R.A.B.'s list of successes in 2010. A.R.A.B. and the First Dirt Republic team have reached out to and worked with the youth and the community, been featured in several online and printed articles, in which the printed one A.R.A.B. was on the cover, obtained clothing line sponsors, opened for big name artists like The Jacka and Canibus, had music featured on the indie film screening of Orange Grove, and obtained digital distribution through Universal / In-Grooves for A.R.A.B.'s latest release, The Trojan Horse.
Ultimately, it is up to the fans to show their love and support for A.R.A.B. as an emcee. Voting has already begun and continues until September 23. The competition is definitely stiff this year as there are 14 other emcees nominated in the same category as A.R.A.B. It's important that voters know that they can only vote for one nominee in each category.
Winners will be announced and given awards on Saturday, October 9, at SN&R's Annual SAMMIE's Awards and Festival on the R Street Corridor (R Street between 14th and 15th streets) sometime between 6 and 10 p.m. Only one ballot per person. All ballots are counted electronically, to be validated and tabulated on September 24th. No ballot stuffing. E-mail addresses will be verified.
