Indie Entertainment Summit Conference & Hip Hop Honors is set to honor Tupac, Ruthless Records and Priority Records at its third-annual event, which is slated to take place August 6-9 in Los Angeles.
Tupac is slated to be honored Wednesday (August 6).
The rest of the conference is set to include seminars, workshops and networking events focused on the independent side of the music, movie, television, touring and technology industries, according to a press release.
Representatives from Strange Music, RBC Records, Funk Volume, Omnia Media, Guerilla Union, INgrooves Fontana and ADA are slated to attend the conference.
Last year, N.W.A was honored at the Indie Entertainment Summit in North Hollywood, California. The Compton, California-based Rap group consisted of Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, Dr. Dre and DJ Yella and was honored at IES for the role it played in independent music.
"It was just so simple for us," DJ Yella said at the IES Summit last year of N.W.A's initial material, which was released on Eazy-E's Ruthless Records through Macola Records before partnering with Priority Records. "We weren’t trying to make money, nothing like that. If we would of tried that, we wouldn’t be talking today. It was just about the music, the passion.”
N.W.A broke through in 1988 with its Straight Outta Compton album and the singles "Express Yourself" and the title track. Eazy-E's 1988 album, Eazy-Duz-It, included the cuts "We Want Eazy" and the previously released "Boyz-N-The Hood." But it was N.W.A's "_ _ _ _ Tha Police" that catapulted N.W.A to national notoriety.


In addition to N.W.A, Ruthless Records released material from Bone thugs-n-harmony and Eazy-E, among others, while Priority Records released albums from Ice Cube, Master P and Snoop Dogg, among others.
