MTV Jams With Ozone, Brings Mag's Award Show To The Masses
The second annual Ozone Awards will take place on August 13 at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, FL. The recently announced line up of performers and presenters reads like who's who list of hip-hop heavyweights. Rick Ross, T-Pain, Young Jeezy, Plies, Lil' Wayne, Yung Joc, Lloyd, UGK, Shop Boyz, Trey Songz, Lil' Scrappy and Trick Daddy are among the attendees. Additional names of presenters and performers are also set to be released at a later date.
Those not able to attend the festivities in person will now have the opportunity to witness the evening's events, as the awards show will also air over the Labor Day weekend (September 1-3) on the MTV Jams network.
"The authenticity of the Ozone Awards is what constantly draws MTV Jams to the event," stated Tuma Basa, manager of music programming for MTV Jams. "The performers, nominees, and audience bring a completely unmatched level of realness and raw energy to the Ozone Awards and totally captures what the MTV Jams audience is looking for from the channel."
Ozone magazine CEO, Julia Beverly, believes that the partnership between herself and MTV Jams will be a win-win situation for all parties and will help the two year-old award show expand its reach.
"Ozone's past collaborations with MTV Jams have helped us grow from a small underground publication to a nationally recognized brand," Beverly said. "The first annual Ozone Awards airing on Jams last year was a great look for everyone involved, so we're excited to be working with them again this year. Expect it to be bigger and better!"
