Akwid, the Latin hip hop duo that revolutionized Latin music in the U.S. in 2004, won for a second year in a row the “Best Latin Rap/ Hip Hop Album of The Year” award at the 16th edition of the 2005 Latin Billboard Music Awards, held on May 28, 2005 in Miami.

Undoubtedly, Akwid’s innovation and pioneering spirit has consolidated the duo as the #1 Latin hip hop recording artist in the United States of America.
The string of multiple nominations in the past two years for the Grammys and the Latin Grammys, and the two Latin Platinum Albums certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the collective sales of over 450,000 units of two albums, corroborate once again Akwid’s enduring power in the Latin music industry. Two Latin Billboard Awards in two consecutive years is an impressive feat for any Latin alternative act.

“We are proud of the music we create and also of the support we have received to date from our audience. Winning awards is cool because it makes you feel appreciated and your work valued but what matters most to us is our people’s recognition and support,” stated Sergio Gomez, older brother of duo.

Prior to the award ceremony, Akwid also participated in a panel discussion of the 2005 Latin Billboard Music Conference where they spoke in depth about their music, the emerging Latin hip hop movement and the new tendencies in Urban music across the U.S.

Akwid is currently in the recording studio working on their much anticipated third album with Univision Records, which is tentatively scheduled to be released at the end of the 2005 summer.
