Last night at the Ambassador, the 2010 version of the Traffic Music Awards brought together the movers and shakers (and plenty of hopeful movers and shakers) of St. Louis hip-hop. Hosted by Hot 104.1's Tony J, the event featured performances by artists such as Ruka Puff, Aloha, Ray Goss, J'Von and Bradd Young. Winners included Murphy Lee (Best Street Song, "St. Louis Winner"), Louie V, Shorty and Laudie (Best Collaboration, "Do Your Own Dance"), Unladylike (Group of the Year) and Yung Ro (Club Song of the Year, "Donk Dat Booty").
Photographer Jason Stoff was there and brought back a ton of photos. Here are a few selections below.
