A stark contrast to its summer-based relative, the BET Awards, the BET Hip Hop Awards focuses primarily on rap music and culture. So, awards slated for nominees such as Yolanda Adams and Serena Williams have been replaced with nominations for Best DJ, Hustler Of The Year and the Made-You-Look Award (for most fashionable, because of course).
With Drake, DJ Khaled and Future leading all nominees, the proceedings will be hosted by DJ Khaled while the likes of Young M.A, Gucci Mane (making his first televised appearance since being released from prison), Lil Uzi Vert, Desiigner, Big K.R.I.T, Isaiah Rashad and many more are slated to perform on the main stage. Head down below for all of the performances.
