Hip hop’s biggest night out is set to be a star-studded extravaganza, much like we expected!
Airing Tuesday, October 5, BET Networks just announced the fun-filled lineup for the 16th Annual BET Hip Hop Awards, which includes hosts 85 South (consisting of comedians DC Young Fly, Karlous Miller, and Chico Bean). We’re sure the dynamic trio is set to turn the party out for the second year in a row.
Trina, Remy Ma, Jermaine Dupri, and Tank are all slated to take the stage as presenters for the nominees. While Young Thug, Gunna, Bia, Lil Jon, Baby Keem, and Isaiah Rashad are planned to rock the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre stage with memorable performances.
Rapper and philanthropist, Nelly will receive the 2021 I Am Hip Hop Award. “I am honored to receive this award and humbled to be in such great company of past artists who have received this award,” the honoree previously said.
