Each year, BET holds its annual Hip Hop Awards as a tribute to those who paved the way, as well as those who are killing the game now, and those who are rising as well.
This year’s show returned to Atlanta, GA and featured some special guest appearances from stars like Lil Kim, Remy Ma, Glorilla, Kodak Black, Yo Gotti and many others. All the way from the Bronx, NY Fat Joe served as presenter for this year’s awards ceremony, which also honored the one and only trina with the “I Am Hip Hop Award”.
Check out a list of this year’s winners:
Glorilla was announced as the first winner of this year’s awards ceremony. She had a big year with her summer anthem “FNF (Let’s Go),” and with the success of the record, she became the first female rapper to be signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG record label.
There were two winners in the vote for the best hip-hop platform. Yung Miami’s show Caresha Please walked away as the winner. As well as the podcast “Drink Champs” by NORE and DJ EFN. Both shows are part of Revolt’s platform.
When it comes to the DJs who made it to the A’s and Two’s, DJ Drama walked away with the DJ of the Year title.
Trina has been the baddest for more than 20 years, and during tonight’s show she was recognized for her contributions to the game when she received the I Am Hip-Hop Award. During her acceptance speech, she shared that her award is dedicated to her 17-year-old niece, who was sadly killed in July.
