On Monday, November 18, 2013 at The Times Center, in New York City, the second annual Global Spin Awards honored countless DJ’s and industry innovators. The GSA’s spotlighted the ground breakers that have ushered in the new and those who preserve the DJ culture and legacy. You can’t have a party without a DJ!

HANDS down, our favorite moment was the Marley Marl tribute!

DJ’s and guests filled the venue dressed to the nines as Sway Calloway of Shade 45 and MTV hosted the black tie affair that was created by Power Moves Inc. executive/Bad Boy Records, Shawn Prez.

Awards were presented by Busta Rhymes, Kendrick Lamar, Swizz Beatz, Elle Varner, Tank and Big Daddy Kane just to name a few. Awards recognized DJs and culture innovators from all around the world.
