As 2010 comes to an end, it's only right that we reflect on everything that was good in music, TV and media and hand out a few NERDies...
The following awards have been given to the people I personally feel deserve to get them! I understand my views will not be shared by everyone, but... I DON'T CARE!!! I mean no disrespect to your favourite/MC/Singer, feel free to comment, it's all in good fun!
With that said, LET US BEGIN>>>
Above are four acts I think will make BIGG noise in 2011!
Clockwise from left to right-
Big Sean- Signed to Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music imprint. The LA born MC is sick with the word play, delivery and story telling! Gonna be massive trust me.
AKS- The South East London MC has been on my radar for over a year now, after winning the Cordless Shows 'People's Vote' he has been putting the finishing touches on his material which, will hopefully be released in 2011. For those who know about the 'Bus Stop', the wait will soon be over.
Scorcher- North London's very own prince has been around for a while, but after signing a major label deal earlier this year, expect bigg things from Skywalker in 2011.
J Cole- Do I even need to give you a biog of this guy? Signed to Jay-Z's RocNation imprint the multi-talented MC has moved more mixtapes than some of your favourite artists mainstream albums! Saviour of hip hop? I'd say so!
I'm looking forward to hearing more from Katy B in 2011. I've liked her singles so far and she has a nice vibe about her!

Outstanding Achievement Award
What a year it has been for Tinie Tempah and Disturing London. After two number one singles (should've been three with 'Frisky'), a number one album and various collaborations all of his hard work has paid off!
Expect even more from him and his camp in 2011!
Here's a toast to more success... Shout out to D!
