DJ Khaled, Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar & More Lead The 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards
The 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards goes down tomorrow night in Miami, Florida. Sunshine State staple DJ Khaled, the man behind one of the year’s most successful albums in Grateful, will be acting as host, presiding over a ceremony that boasts many big names on the list of performers and nominees.
2017’s breakout star Cardi B is set to take home some major hardware, earning nine nominations for this year’s show, including Single of the Year, Best New Hip-Hop Artist and MVP of the Year. Cardi B was also up for Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards earlier this summer, but lost out to Chance the Rapper and Remy Ma respectively. Khaled and Kendrick Lamar also garnered nine different nods, which means that we’ll almost certainly get an Asahd Khaled sighting on the red carpet. Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, Drake, Rihanna, Future, French Montana, Migos, Metro Boomin’ and A$AP Rocky are just a few of the other big names that dot the list of nominees.
As far as performers go, fans are in for quite a treat as well. Cardi B, Gucci Mane and DJ Khaled will all be taking the stage to perform, as well as Florida’s best-known talents like Rick Ross, Trick Daddy, T-Pain, Trina, Plies and Flo Rida. Former 2 Live Crew member Uncle Luke will be receiving the pretigious I Am Hip-Hop Icon Award and will be giving a special performance as well.
The 2017 Hip Hop Awards goes down at 8/7 Central tomorrow (October 10th) on BET.
