Everyone’s favorite 414 emcee – Kia Rap Princess, is up for an award. She was nominated by local radio station 88.9 as part of their sixth Annual Radio Milwaukee Music Awards. She is up for the “Solo Artist Of The Year” category. There are also a couple of write-in award options too, in case someone felt like maybe she deserved some additional recognition. So she needs all of her supporters to set aside a few minutes and vote. All they have to do is follow the provided link. It’s pretty self-explanatory from there. Voting is open until this Friday, which is the 22nd. The winners will be announced and celebrated on December 5th. Once you’re done voting, join Kia’s Facebook event and let her know you’re holding it down for the princess. Good luck KRP, The Illixer is rooting for you! And of course we voted! -MinM
