5 Grammy Awards, 11 BET Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, eight NAACP Image Awards, a legacy that will transcend music forever and so much more.
On August 13, 2021, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Polo G, and countless other leading Hip Hop artists took the stage at Lil Wayne's UPROAR Hip Hop Festival at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, hosted by none other than Tropf Management's own Samantha Long.
Along with hosting the festival for thousands in attendance and thousands more through the live stream via Mandolin, Samantha performed, choreographed, co-produced and was the lead host for the UPROAR Dance Competition with her media company, A THREAT.
8 teams battled it out in front of the audience for thousands of dollars, adding an entirely new and exciting element of crowd interaction at a festival. The dance competition went hand-in-hand with Lil Wayne's lifestyle brand GKUA, whose ongoing mission is to discover, create, support, and provide life-changing opportunities for creators, talented artists, and up and coming dancers.
It was a career defining moment for Samantha, as she said herself "being able to work with him is such an iconic moment because he’s really birthed this entire generation."
This was the cultivation of a years-long relationship with Young Money, Lil Wayne's team, and the team at GKUA - we would like to thank all of them for the opportunity and the successful event.
