Team Fearless ensures the icons of Hip Hop are acknowledged for their work in this musical genre. Honoring Hip Hop Legends Awards was the brainchild of Tito Dones, himself a legendary MC from the pioneering group, the Fearless Four. He recognized the need to increase awareness within the Hip Hop Community of the contributions given by those seemingly obscure artists, and dig deeper into the its genealogical tree.
Re-establishing the pioneers who gave life to this art form, different eras of music are intended to create awareness for their contributions to the future, past and present talent. The first Team Fearless Hip Hop Legends Honors was launched on April 6, 2012.
