On December 30th, Queen Bobbi, iYoVisuals and Wire Road Studios came together to present “30 for 30,” a toast to the cream of Houston’s entertainment crop, paying homage to a variety of creative professionals including publicists, producers, writers and more.

At the center of the evening was Issac “Chill” Yoman, an integral part of Wire Road’s continued success. Addressing the packed studio, he stressed the importance of strengthening ties within the city explaining, “We know it’s competition everywhere, but we have to come together.”

Bursting with local talent, Houston is once again becoming a focal point for Texas’ bubbling entertainment industry. In a salute to those pulling it all together behind the scenes, organizers took time to give a special award to LMG CEO D. Will, who was presented with a  plaque in recognition of the platinum single “Nasty Freestyle,” the infectious result of a collaboration with artist T-Wayne and We Run It ENT. File it as yet another impressive notch on his resume, which includes an impressive distribution deal signed with 300 last year.

Also honored were leaders of the industry including 93.7 The Beat music director Devi Dev, legendary music director Mr. Boomtown, Emmy award-winning engineer Danny Reeves and G Dash who helped bring Swishahouse to the forefront. As the city continues to grow and succeed, it will be interesting to see who makes the cut next year.
