2006 Justo Mixtape Awards Winners Finally Receive Awards

mixtape-awards-logo.jpgThe 2006 Justo Mixtape Awards honored not only the scores of hip-hop DJ’s who mean so much to the culture, but also the events founder—Justo Faison—who died in a car accident in May of 2005. Unfortunately, last years ceremony at Harlem’s Apollo Theater was marred by various scuffles and arguments and was eventually shut down early by the NYPD due to overcrowding. Last Night (May 8) the 2006 winners finally got a chance to collect their awards at a special fundraising event on the Harlem Bowling Lanes. The gathering, intended to raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, doubled as a second awards ceremony. The honorees expected to attend included Steve Rifkind, who received the Mixtape Top Executive and Lifetime Achievement Award, and DJ Whoo Kid, who won for Best Mixtape Radio Show.
