Grammy award-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar may have won big at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards, but the ladies definitely had a night to remember. It was a night of first wins and career-highlighting moments, including up-and-coming rapper Latto who took home “Song of the Year” for her smash hit “Energy.” In honor of this year’s celebration, let’s look at the biggest female winners.

    Memphis-based emcee GloRilla took home her first-ever rap award during this year’s ceremony.

  • Yung Miami

    City Girls’ Yung Miami tied with N.O.R.E and DJ ENF of Drink Champs for her visual interviewing segment Caresha Please on REVOLT TV. The Florida-based rapper’s latest rapper collaborations have come in the form of viral discussions that have had everyone on social media chatting up a storm.
