J-Dilla takes lead at 2007 Plug Awards


On November 14, the Plug Cartel (not to be confused with Plug One, natch) announced the nominees for the 2007 Plug Independent Music Awards. Among the hip-hop artists cited for their work, the late James “J-Dilla” Yancey was nominated a whopping seven times. He is the only hip-hop artist nominated for Album of the Year (for Donuts, the instrumental effort released just after his death) and Artist of the Year

Other multiple hip-hop recipients include Spank Rock, the Coup, Dabrye and Mr. Lif, all of whom nabbed two nominations.

You can cast a ballot for your favorite artists at the Plug Awards website until January 26, 2007. The fourth annual ceremony takes place on Saturday, February 10 at Irving Plaza in NYC.
