BET Hip Hop Awards 2017

The annual BET Hip Hop Awards kicked off in Miami this year. The live show took place this past Friday, but will air on the network tonight. Here’s what to expect…

  • The most humble DJ in the game, Khaled hosting the event for the second year in a row, rendering nothing less than his best for the occasion.
  • It wouldn’t be right to kick-it in MIA without the likes of Trick Daddy, Ric Ross, Plies, Yo Gotti, and the baddest bitch touching the stage with Floridian peers T-Pain, Flo Rida, and Playboi Carti.
  • Look for Gucci, Cardi B, and the Migos to also make a performing appearance, as well as DJ Khaled.
  • BET’s Hip Hop ‘I Am Hip Hop’ Award will be presented to the infamous Luther Campbell aka Uncle Luke for his contributions made toward the industry.

Stay close to see who won what award throughout the evening, but in the meantime glance over the nominees and red carpet photos.
