Today ‘Het Parool’ has announced that we are this year’s winner of the ‘Amsterdamprijs’! The other two winners are architect Marlies Rohmer and video artist Julika Rudelius. The award, which is the most important art award of the city, goes out every year to those artists who contributed in a special way to the arts and to putting Amsterdam on the map. It’s the first time that a hip hop group receives the award which, besides the honour, consists of a very nice sum of money.
The award ceremony will take place on August 28th in the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ where we will receive the award from mayor Job Cohen. We’re very honoured!
