Ground-breaking cyphers, socio-political spoken word, hip hop icons, and a comedian-turned-rapper. The BET Hip Hop Awards showcased the hottest in the industry.
The night featured unforgettable live performances by Desiigner, T.I., Young M.A., Big K.R.I.T., Lecrae, and more. Long Beach’s finest, Uncle Snoop Dogg, received the “I Am Hip Hop” Award.”
The turbulent climate between law enforcement and the African-American community fueled artistic expression this year, and rightfully so. The show was hosted by the hardest working man in show business right now, DJ Khaled.
