This past Saturday (Sept. 17th), The 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards Show took place at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.

Music artists and other entertainers came to Atlanta to attend the hip hop awards show that pays homage to our favorite mainstream hip hop artist with accolades.

Some of this year’s attendees included; Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, T.I., Big K.R.I.T., Lacrae, Lil Wayne, Kevin Hart, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, DJ Khaled, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Desiigner, and many others.

Snoop Dogg was honored with the I Am Hip Hop award, Kendrick Lamar took home the Lyricist of the Year award, Chance The Rapper rightfully received an award for Best New Hip Hop Artist, and DJ Khaled walked away with The Hustler of the Year title, he was also this year’s host for the first time.

With DJ Khaled as the host, the show is bound to be entertaining because “they don’t want DJ Khaled to host the BET Hip Hop Awards”.

The 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards will air on BET on October 4th. Be sure to tune in for the red carpet fashions, the cyphers, and to see which nominees took home awards.
