The newest, fairest, and Blackest music convention to date. Coming in 2022.
Next Generation Evaluation
A panel of ten judges of mixed backgrounds, races, genders, sexualities, etc., will rank artists and their music using the WGM patented Five Category, Ten Point Scale, which scores artists and their songs on lyricism, flow, syncopation, theme, and originality. Any artist who scores a perfect 10.00 will move on to the next day in the convention.
Lewis Hall of Fame
WGM panelists will scour the music industry for the most influential and most underrepresented artists. Five of these artists will be inducted in the new Lewis Hall of Fame. Two of the artists will be legendary musicians or groups of musicians that you already know, dubbed the Timeless Hall of Famers. The final three artists will be unknown names or musicians that aren’t as popular, but have the talent and the dedication as the Timeless Hall of Famers. They’ll be known as the Generation Hall of Famers.
Ada B. Jones Library of Music
Two records will be introduced to the new Ada B. Jones Library of Music during each convention. These records will have sonographic impeccability, unique vocals and instruments, and a quality that’s like butter to the ears. One record will be determined by the WGM panel of judges, and the other on the final day of the WMC. The Ada B. Jones Library of music recreates the classic archive of precious media for the world, and reinvents it by allowing a vote for the archival of a record, which happens on the last day.
