Stop That Train: Reggae Invades the Soul Train Awards

November 10, 2010

words by Eddie STATS Houghton


The 2010 Soul Train Awards is taping tonight at the Cobb Energy center in Atlanta, Georgia (to be broadcast on BET on Nov. 28th) and as we mentioned recently the reggae category is especially heavy this year. After taking a MOBO and getting the Hot97 forward Gyptian is the likely favorite but Mr. Vegas is slated to perform which looks good for him. The rest of the field is not to be dismissed easily: Gramps Morgan, Vybz Kartel, Damian Marley, Jah Cure. Damian (thanks to Nas) and (thanks to Rick Ross) now Jah Cure have the urban crossover argument, Vybz has the Jamaican stamp. It’s anybody’s game but no matter who wins Gramps has the afterparty on lock! (see flyer after the jump)

Update: GYPTIAN WINS! (told you so.)
