Tags and topics realted to this article include Bone Crusher, Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz, Ja Rule, Nelly and Lil Kim.

Legendary St. Louis rapper Nelly was named male solo artist of the year on Monday night at Hip-Hop's annual gala, The Source Awards 2003, while the diminutive diva, Lil' Kim, took top solo honors in the female category.

 Lil' Jon and the East Side Boyz were named best group of the year in a music genre that grew up in the urban streets of the United States but now regularly heads the U.S. billboards Top Ten and embraces millions of fans around the world.

Fighting an image of drive-by shootings and gang warfare, Hip-Hop has moved on from pure music to become a multibillion-dollar industry dictating fashion trends and street cred.

The Album of the Year award, and Single of the Year award for a male solo artist, were handed down for "Get Rich or Die Tryin'," and "In Da Club," by controversial rapper 50 Cent, a newcomer to mainstream success but a veteran of street shootings and stabbings.

The Source Awards, launched in 1991 by Hip-Hop music magazine The Source, began behind schedule and under tight security in downtown Miami.
