ESP Enterprises is the parent company of the Ohio Hip Hop Awards & Music Conference. The Ohio Hip Hop Awards & Music Conference is, primarily, an annual 3 day weekend of networking events, workshops, seminars, artist showcases, parties, & a black tie, red carpet award show. Its premise is to educate up and coming singers, rappers, musicians, managers, producers, DJ’s, and other Ohio-based entertainment professionals on the best practices to succeed in the entertainment industry, as well as to celebrate their accomplishments thus far at the award show ceremony. Our goal is to create an infrastructure for sustainable wealth via the arts, where all of the talented artists and entertainment professionals in our area can flourish in their respective crafts.
The event has featured appearances & performances from notable celebrities and top level entertainment industry executives such as: Bone Thugs N Harmony, Machine Gun Kelly, Twista, Cassidy, Hi-Tek, Corey Gunz, Nikki Giovanni, Steve Lobel, Amir Windom (Atlantic), Drew Rives (Def Jam), Pam Jones (Warner Brothers), AnyExTee (Amalgam Digital), Big Mucci, Kevin Black (Interscope), Adam Favors (Interscope), Ron Spaulding, Cynthia Johnson (Columbia), GLC, Jake One, Vitamin D, Ray Cash, Ray Jr., various NBA & NFL stars, & national reps from Def Jam, Universal, Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, Interscope Records, and many more.
