The BET Hip-Hop Awards 2016

The BET Hip-Hop Awards 2016 was aired on 4th October 2016 and was hosted by DJ Khaled. The ceremony was pre-taped in September at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre and we got to see some memorable performances from Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, Young Thug, T.I., Desiigner, 21 Savage and many more.


The highly anticipated BET cypher segment saw various upcoming artists who brought in their A-game but it was overlaid by a hilarious battle between Lil Wayne and Kevin “Chocolate Droppa” Hart.

The nominations were announced in August 2016 with Drake leading the list with 14 nominations for Album of the Year, Lyricist of the Year, Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Live Performer and many more. Following him was Future with ten nominations, DJ Khaled with nine and Kanye West with eight and several others.
