"MC Friction wins in the Rap/Hip-Hop Song category for "The Cure" in The 12 IMA Vox Pop Voted On By Fans Around The World!!"

On behalf of The Independent Music Awards and music fans from around the world - it is our pleasure to congratulate MC Friction on winning in the Rap/Hip-Hop Song category for "The Cure" in The 12 IMA Vox Pop poll, the fan-determined portion of The IMAs.

MC Friction joins an incredible group of self-released and independent label talent from around the world. It is an honor to have the opportunity to promote your music and art to a wider audience.

This "people's voice" award keeps the spotlight on all Nominees long after the nominations are announced – and encourages music fans to actively support their favorite artists while discovering other great talent. Respect and support for exceptional independent music is what The IMAs are all about. More than 40 percent of the "people's voice" winners named today differed from those named in June by an industry judging panel.

One of the most compelling things about these Vox Pop results is the undeniable proof that active bands and motivated fans are a winning combination!

Bio

The Essence of Hip-Hop has pumped thru my veins, since the very first time my ears heard Run DMC "Sucka Emcee". Not knowing personally how the addiction of drugs takes over a persons mind, body & soul....but for me Hip-Hop was like a missing Strand of the "DNA" Dbl Helix crafted in a melodic frequency for a generation to rise from oppression using the most truthful form of expression that the world had ever seen!! As a StrongIsland native, I was able to see first hand the power this musical genre had to organize the masses as Chuck D & Public Enemy performed what is considered by many the greatest Hip-Hop song ever "Fight The Power". Rakim (Allah) being a supreme lyricist & introducing new rhyme schemes raised the bar (Literally) & gave birth to a new generation of Emcees. From these & many other Legendary Hip-Hop Artist my Foundation was poured solid & it is on their foundation that I carry on tradition of speaking truth to power. "FRICTION" the name in itself gives me my focus,strength & mission. The Acronym stands for (F)oreva (R)esisting (I)njustice & (C)hallenging (T)ruths (I)n order to (O)verthrow (N)ations . Psychologist say the hardest thing on Earth to do is to change someones mind once it has already been made up. So to speak the truth to our parents/grandparents & to get them to reason with the facts of how the world is being run to effect change for our future is like fighting an uphill battle pushing a tank which ran out of gas. But If you teach a new generation whose minds are open using the most powerful weapon we have to influence them (Hip-Hop) which is now global we stop the chain of ignorance being passed down from generation to generation & a new world can come into existence based on truth,justice & equality & free from oppression. It's time to take Hip-Hop back to it's original path of being the voice of the voiceless & Change the World!!!
