Madchild wins a WCMA for Dope Sick [News]
Calgary, AB – Though he wasn’t able to make it to Calgary to accept his award, Madchild won the Western Canadian Music Award (WCMA) for Rap/Hip-Hop Recording of the Year for his album, Dope Sick. Dope Sick was released in August 2012. It hit the #1 spot on the iTunes Canada album charts within 12 hours of its release (which is pretty major business).
Madchild was up against some heavy competition (including himself) with fellow nominees Kyprios (The Lap Dog EP), Moka Only (Airport 6), Swollen Members (Beautiful Death Machine), and The Lytics (They Told Me).
This marks the second year in a row that Madchild has landed himself a WCMA. Last year, Swollen Members took home the award for Rap/Hip-Hop Recording of the Year for Dagger Mouth. Huge congratulations to Madchild. Way to keep it fresh. And a big thank-you to our friends over at BreakOut West for putting on a super conference and showcase this weekend. BreakOut West Festival 2014 goes down in Winnipeg next year. We’ll see you all there.
And in case you haven’t given it a listen yet, make sure you head over to iTunes to purchase a copy of Dope Sick. And while you’re at it, you should probably cop Madchild’s latest Lawn Mower Man project, as well.
