“We've already began early planning and strategic planning for the 2015 Go DJ awards, Our promise is to uphold the integrity and elegance to ensure the event grows stronger each year.The event couldn't have run smoother and everyone had fun, which is what our first priority was in showcasing the top local hip hop talent,” said Velma Trayham "Co Co The Ceo" (two-time author,Business Expert and Chief Executive Officer of ThinkZILLA PR Group ). “Local businesses came together to support this event. I know it was a risk for them and we are truly honored to have had their backing. The event sold out, which gives us incentive to make next year’s event even bigger and brighter!”
Houston’s own honorees include FOX 26 Reporter Isiah Carey and Mega-Pastor Keion Henderson of The Light-House Church, Attorney Carl Moore, James Prince founder of "Rap a Lot , Kirko Bangs,Slim Thug ,Radio Personality-DJ JQue , Al Rucker "King Of Bonds "and many more.There were so many celebrities and VIP guest that walked the red carpet; Charlie Baltimore, King Keraun, JJ of 97.9 the Box, Tv Johnny, Mayoral Candidate Ben Hall, Kirko Bangz, Reality Stars from Bad Girls Club , Miss Mykie , Slim Thug and many more all walked the red carpet and were “swarmed” with media coverage.
"The Hip Hop Awards featured a Red Carpet, Valet, Formal Dress Attire, Live Performances, a fashion show by 'The Boutique", Food Service by Expensive Taste Catering and more all while Honoring Houston’s Top. This star-studded event will certainly put Houston back on the “map” with the level of success it has achieved. With Houston being the 4th Largest City in the United States and not recognized as an entertainment city; I know this event reinstated what the people of Houston already know when it comes to hip hop, entertainment and business- that our city is a talent pool to be reckoned with. I’m hopeful we obtain national sponsors and media coverage next year so the city of Houston can give LA and New York a run for their money when it comes to award shows,” finished Trayham.

The event wouldn't be possible without the assistance of sponsors, which included: Miptags,97.9 The Box , A Better Bail Bonds, Houston Hair Weaving Center, The Boutique, Expensive Taste Catering ,Brian Keith Productions, DSD1 and Indique Hair .
