The Soul Rebels Trace Their Hip-Hop Roots

For years, much of the New Orleans music community treated hip-hop as the bad cop to the brass bands’ good cop—one suspect; one real music. One sold a ton of records, while the other was treated as true New Orleans music. But the dirty little not-so-secret is that both were street musics, and they influenced each other. Brass band members were listening to hip-hop as much as rappers, particularly bounce artists, were listening to brass bands.

New Orleans Music Awards Become the My Spilt Milk Awards

From here on out, My Spilt Milk's New Orleans Music Awards will be the My Spilt Milk Awards. We learned today that people were confusing us with the NOLA Music Awards, which honors hip-hop and urban music in New Orleans. That kind of confusion doesn't serve either awards shows or the music community well, so we've decided to change our name.
