Straight Stuntin Magazine Wins “Best Independent Magazine” Award!
The second annual Urban Model Awards was held this year in beautiful South Beach Miami at Club Play. While much of the Eastern Seaboard braced itself for hurricane Irene, the much-anticipated awards drew a bevy of hawt chicks, onlookers, well-wishers and many of Miami’s local talent. This was a “Red Carpet” event, filmed by British TV’s Butterfly Models. The awards were hosted by the lovely Felisha Monet, known throughout South Florida as the sweetest voice in radio over at WEDR 99 Jamz.

Unfortunately, some of the invited guests could not get a flight to Miami because of the impending hurricane. One guest in particular, DJ Kayslay, owner of Straight Stuntin Magazine, who was nominated for Best Independent Magazine, could not attend, thanks to Mother Nature. But all was not lost! DJ Kayslay won “Independent Magazine of the Year!” DJ Kayslay was well-represented by several models and hip-hop blogger Khalil Amani, who accepted Straight Stuntin Magazine’s award on his behalf.
