2003 Source Awards winners

Recommended Posts

MIAMI — It's the only awards show where you'll see more stars wearing name brands like Dickies and Timberland than Louis Vuitton and Armani.

 

The sixth annual Source Awards took place Monday night with the absent 50 Cent leading the pack with two major nods. (Click for photos from the red carpet.)

 

Despite his on-wax beef with The Source's co-owner Ray Benzino, the voters couldn't deny 50, giving his Get Rich or Die Tryin' Album of the Year honors while his "In Da Club" took home Single of the Year - Male.

 

The other big winners of the night were Nelly, who won Artist of the Year - Male, and the Neptunes, who took home the prize for Producer of the Year. Lil' Kim came away from the ceremony as the night's top lady, grabbing Artist of the Year - Female.

 

"This has been a great weekend, I been in Miami partying my ass off," Kim, who was up for five awards, said on the red carpet. "Then after tonight I'm gonna party my ass off again. The Source Awards, that's way big. That was the first time I ever performed on live TV. We did the first Source Awards with Biggie, and we ripped."

 

"We didn't know," Nelly said backstage about taking home the Artist of the Year Award. "We was nominated for four awards, you think you win then you don't. You think you won't, then you win. We just came to have a good time."

 

Nelly did know that he was going to receive a Source Foundation Image Award for his work in the community. He, along with LL Cool J, Rock Steady Crew member Crazy Legs and Roy Jones Jr. were given those honors.

 

"[To get] an Image Award for giving back, that's saying that people do notice," Nelly said. "Not that we do it because of that, but this is letting us know that certain people appreciate what you do."

 

"Being onstage with them is a lot of fun," LL said about getting his Image Award. "It's nice to just see different phases of the culture. Different times. How people blend with the good energy and good vibes. It always feels good to get included."

 

Beyond the awards, the highlight of the night was the Dirty South medley, when Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz, David Banner, Bone Crusher, Lil' Flip and the Ying Yang Twins hit the stage. The artists kept things crunk not only with their rowdy tunes, but by having strippers as backup dancers. The ladies flashed their bare breasts, showed their BUTT cheeks and gyrated on poles.

 

"Actually [the idea for the performance] came about when we was in L.A. and we happened to run into one of the guys that was setting up The Source thing," Lil Jon explained. "I gave my idea on the spot. Everybody's idea of the South, the first thing they think about is going to the strip clubs. Then in the 'Get Low' video we in the strip clubs. Our song 'Get Low' and David Banner's song 'Like a Pimp' is songs for women to dance to. So they ran with the idea of everybody rocking on the set. We tried to upstage Madonna [and Britney Spears at the MTV Video Music Awards] with the [women] kissing.

 

"It's just our time right now," Jon added about the props the Southerners received at the show. "All of the South artists did they thing tonight. Bone Crusher got an award, Killer Mike, T.I. The South has never got this much love from something like The Source. Hip-hop is considered to be something that comes from the North and the Northern artists get most of the respect, but the Southern artists got some respect tonight."

 

Ja Rule didn't fare as well during his performance of "The Crown" and "Clap Back." Although he had people on their feet, he received some boos when he finished his set. That was the second time during the night he heard it from the crowd — earlier, the fans dissed him when he won R&B/Rap Collaboration of the Year for "Thug Lovin' " with Bobby Brown. Rule didn't go onstage to accept his award.

 

The rapper's spokesperson said his absence was not due to the crowd's reaction, but rather because he was backstage and was not aware that his category was being presented. To Rule's defense, there was some confusion at the ceremony, as it ran well into the night, going past 1 a.m.

 

"This is history," Benzino said on the red carpet, shortly before the show commenced. "Ain't nothing like this ever been nowhere. This is hip-hop at its purest form. [You'll see] people that a lot of other awards shows just don't acknowledge. We represent hip-hop in its purest form and the people involved with it. The Source magazine's been the number-one imprint of hip-hop for a long time. This shows that. We got the support of every artist out here."

 

Other winners included the Clipse for Single of the Year - Group with "Grindin' " and Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz for Artist of the Year - Group and Video of the Year for "I Don't Give a F---." A spokesperson for the event said additional winners will be announced later.

 

The Source Awards will air November 11 on BET.

Its funny that people think Ja can save his career, its a Wrap Ja is over. There's so many other underground female rappers thats better than lil Kim but refuse to show some skin or not attractive enough so they get no exposure. I have to check out K-OS album.

 

I hate:

 

Crunk phase- this reminds in early 90's when every rapper from the West Coast got deals like crazy. It has its purpose, clubs and parties is the only time i'll listen to.

 

Benzino- im suprise he didn't rig a award for himself

 

Ja- I can't believe he and Bobby won award for that wack ass "Thug lovin" song.

Madd Skillz- 2002 rap up

 

See this what we gonna do y'all

Re-cap the two-double-0-two y'all

 

R. Kelly got caught wildin'

He sold more sex videos than he did albums

A lot of y'all went down fam

Y'all did some dumb stuff for soundscan

The industry did Michael Jackson greasy

Brandy wasn't selling, so she put her pregnancy on TV

Cash money refused to flop

Baby said 'Fuck it, man, I'm takin' Juvenile spot

Christina Ag', she turned into a slut piece

For her record to sell, she let out all of her BUTT cheeks

Rap girls take a lesson from that

Cause nobody remembers a girl that made 'My Neck, My Back'

And hip-hop was at it again

Suge came home and Slick Rick went back in

Man y'all took it to the streets again

But this year a lot of y'all caught beef again

J.D. and Dre started off dissin'

Then they stopped, when they found out nobody was listenin'

Then the IRS hauled J.D.'s cash off

Dre probably in Cali now, laughin' his ass off

By now don't nothing amaze me

In the middle of the summer, man Nas went crazy

He was like, 'I got power, Hot ain't gotta play me

All y'all wack and yes I was gon' lynch Jay-Z'

I guess he figured, 'Y'all ain't gon' punk me'

Admitted the payola and put Flex on front street

And Flex almost got banned

When he saw Steph Lover, he tried to speak wit his hands

And Steph thugged him like, 'I ain't about to get played'

She drove straight to the precinct like, 'I'm bout to get paid'

P Diddy kept cruising,

you wouldn't think half the year he didn't even have distribution

Y'all could front like y'all don't care

But this year, Goddamn, man Diddy was everywhere

And designers made doe

But we gotta burry Burberry, we can't wear that no mo'

And jerseys is next on the list

Y'all was wearing throwbacks of players that don't even exist

Shout out to the Clipse, they kept it on time

And hardest record of the year, that would have to be 'Grindin''

And Em' became the Elvis of rappin'

Justin tried to do it with Black music but it just didn't happen

Man this year was a trip

And J. Lo and Ben will be over by time y'all hear this

War times Bush wanted action

But we was too busy worrying bout What Missy was saying backwards

Snoop stopped smokin' endo

Michael Jackson put his baby out the window

Hot whip: the Escalade, I know you want one

The get back at the industry award goes to Cam'Ron

"Oh Boy" was huge, B

Dame gave him the VP and forgot to tell Jay-Z

You know what's more wild?

I watched 3LW grow up and turn into Destiny's Child

And that wasn't expected

Them broads lost 1 member and couldn't sell one record

Scarface made a classic

Mike Tyson got his ass kicked

A lot of rappers kept faking

Beyonce did a lot of dating

Kelly rushed a album off a joint with Nelly

And got the same results that Hype got when he made Belly, damn

She still look hot half the time

Funniest video of the year? Well that will have to be mine

Production? My mans and them got down

That would be the Neptunes, they got that hands down

By the rules you gotta play

And I swear that BET got stock in B2K

But that is another conversation

And Tweet know damn well that oops was about masterbation

Best of both worlds was sloppy

But damn, it still sold a million copies

If I was Hov' I would of told R, 'It's ok to cut

But do you how much tour money you just messed up?!'

And this year was still gutta

And Fifty? Fifty came back like a mutha'fucka

Still beefin' with Ja and Gotti

They could of chose Johhny, Ricky or Ralph, man, why they chose Bobby?

What's left to say?

R.I.P. Left Eye Lopez and Jam Master Jay

And that's it for me

Its Skillz, I'll see y'all in two-double-0-three

[email protected] Benzino saying the motherfucking source awards is "hip hop in it's purest form" excuse me mr. benzino but fuck you ok, more like hip hop in it's most CORPORATE form. There is nothing pure about most of those artists featured at that award show. Just the same lowbrow, "let's make the blandest music that will sell to the highest percentage of people" as you hear on ANY FM radio station. Top 40 hip hop has sadly joined the club with every other genre on clearchannel radio networks. WORTHLESS

I'm pretty sure these artists can afford paper weights and door stops so I don't see why these awards exist

I think only one year that had multiple fights broke out backstage that was in 2000 or 2001. My favorite Source award moment when Q-Tip was in the middle of accepting his award and 2pac cut him off with impromptu stage performance. Then Suge dissing Puff "If you don't want your CEO dancing in your videos come join Death Row." Source needs to stop doing award shows since they lost all credibility of their magazine. Nelly wins as male artist of the year thats sad.
