Hip-Hop Awards Honors the Culture

 

BET held their annual Hip-Hop Awards show, continuing a 14-year tradition of paying homage to the culture that influences many facets of our lives.  BET began the Hip-Hop Awards as a tribute to those who make a difference in the culture.

 

This year’s ceremony was hosted by the trio of the 85 South Show (Karlous Miller, Chico Bean and DC Youngfly) featuring the most popular stars in Hip-Hop.  Upon seeing so many Southern artists collect awards and accolades, the definitive impact that the South has on Hip-Hop continues to show time after time.

 

Cyphers Capture the Energy of 2020

Throughout the night, there was no shortage of highlights that BET used the range Hip-Hop has developed in its history.  The Hip-Hop Awards also had a dope assortment of ciphers that were centering around diverse themes truly capturing the energy that has come from 2020.  An example of the unique stylings of the ciphers can be seen with the All Women R&B mash-up featuring Teyana Taylor, H.E.R., Erykah Badu and Brandy.

New Artists Make a Statement and Legends are Honored

The 2020 Hip-Hop Awards included nominations for newer artists showing that acts like Roddy Rich (winner for Song of the Year and Album of the Year) and Meg Thee Stallion (Artist of the Year, Hustler of the Year, and Best Collaboration)have thrived in the Internet Age.  Dirty South legend Master P honored with the “I Am Hip-Hop” Award acknowledging his entrepreneurship and business savvy in the culture.

Other notable moments include the tribute performance for the late Pop Smoke winner of Best New Artist and Rapsody, winner of Lyricist of the Year.  Many of the performances featured some of the hottest artists coming from the South including Mulatto, Gucci Mane, The City Girls, and Lil Baby along with a close performance from 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne.
