DJ Khaled Secures the Bag Again: Set to Host BET Hip-Hop Awards

He's got this.

DJ Khaled continues to be one of the most hardworking people in the game. In fact, he stays winning.

Fresh off his gig hosting the pre-show for the MTV Video Music Awards, the entertainer has been called to host the BET Hip-Hop Awards 2016. Another one!

Along with BET’s head of programming, Stephen Hill, the two shared the exciting news on Snapchat.

“Don’t play yourself,” Khaled said. “You’ve been wanting me to host this for a long time. Congratulations, I’ll do it.”

He then confirmed his confidence with hosting the awards show by telling Hill to go ahead and book a vacation because he’s “got this.”

“Congratulations, you’re gonna have another win under your belt,” the Snapchat celebrity proudly stated. “Matter of fact, another one… Go ahead and book your vacation, we’re good. I got this. I’m hosting the BET Hip-Hop Awards.”

In addition to securing the bag by taking on hosting duties, the DJ himself is up for nine awards, including Hustler of the Year. Khaled also hinted that there will be plenty of surprises throughout the evening. 

It’s sure to be a memorable night, and if the VMA pre-show is any indication, Khaled makes for a perfect host.

The 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards will air on October 4. Mark your calendars now!
