Charlotte’s unofficial hip-hop anthem

Congratulations and thank you to J. Quin (Jason Harkless) for submitting the winning entry and Charlotte’s new unofficial hip-hop anthem. Check out the official music video.

He will perform the winning song live at the National League of Cities meeting in November 2017 in Charlotte, N.C., and at the Queen City Awards, which will be televised this year. We hope to see much more of his talent in the future. Congratulations also to the first runner-up, Mel Silas, and the popular vote winner, Big Red (Willis Draughn).
