RIN Awards 2019: Full Winners List
Youngohm, Meyou, Twopee, and other Thai hip-hop acts take home their well-earned awards!
Most would agree that Thailand’s hip-hop scene in 2019 continues to shine in the spotlight. It’s partly thanks to last year’s momentum, where many outstanding efforts and projects help push hip-hop into the mainstream.
For example, we saw several rap battle shows, which introduced a roster of new rappers to the audience. Many hip-hop and R&B hits also soared to the top of Thailand’s various charts all year long.
As recognition of Thai rap and hip-hop talents, one of the influencer communities of this scene, Rap Is Now , presents a list of accolades under its name. RIN Awards 2019 is the fourth iteration of this prestigious award ceremony.
The event took place on November 19, 2019 at Violett, Thonglor, and saw a large crowd of rappers, producers, and artists.
The night featured a three-part program. RIN Awards 2019 opened with a warm-up act from ‘Hidden Gems’ artists like EP$ON, K6Y, Huaplawhale, Jawprayatanyuk, GSUS2, and more.
Then, everyone joins a discussion with Tul Waitoonkiat, Suthira “Paew” Paweenapakorn, and Nopphawit “Ink” Kranlert (Redfaze) on “Working with hip-hop artists and rappers in the age of rap culture”.
Finally, and most importantly, it’s the RIN Awards 2019 announcement. Scroll right down to find out who are the winners of all 15 categories.
