ADRI.V The Go Getta Recap Of The BET Hip Hop Awards 2016 [PHOTOS]
The 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards went down this weekend in Atlanta, GA at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre and The Go Getta was there to cover it all!
When they announced that DJ Khaled would be the host of this years show I knew that it was going to be the best one yet!
Get ready to check out some of your favorite artist as I , ADRI.V The Go Getta gives you the full recap for the awards. SPOILER ALERT!!!
Gucci opened up the show with a full length fur ringing excitement through out the entire auditorium.
He removed his fur and showed us all what he has been working hard on and I'm talking about that body! He mad it so hot in there that the actual ice sculptures that he had on the stage for his performance begin to melt.
For the entire show Guccie remained shirtless.
Later Travis Scott joined the stage and performed with Young Thug aka Jeffery
Right after the performances in true BET Hip Hop Award fashion the first round of cyphers kicked off with Philly Finest and Im talking Peedi Crakk, Neef Buck ,Beanie Sigel, Omillio Sparks and Freeway. Although this was the first Cypher I was so excited and happy to see all of these artists.
The performances continued with Dae Dae performing "Wat U Mean"
Lil Yachty too joined the stage to perform
Lil Yachty didn't stop once he was done with his song, he continued and Big Baby D.R.A.M joined him on stage dragging the cutest puddle while he performed "Broccoli" with Lil Yachty.
After Lil Yachty and Big Baby D.R.A.M left every wanting Broccolie the 2nd round of Cyphers kicked off with Kent Jones, Nick Grant, Russ, A Boogie With The Hoodie and Don Q
Now although they did not perform Remy Ma and Fat Joe took home the Track Of The Year Award for "All The Way Up"
Congrats to Remy and Fat Joe for landing the award but check Remy going off in the both!
The show continued on with a very moving piece by Big Krit talking about police brutality and white supremacy.
The piece was so moving it brought everyone to their feet in a standing ovation. Claps and many Snaps.
Jumping into the 3rd round of cyphers you can expect to see Young Ma, Dave East Kur, Ms. Jade and few others.
A performance that I loved was from Bust Ryhmes artist O.T Genasis. O.T Genasis gave us high energy like Busta would and showed us all how to "Cut it" and "Push it"
With a very popular hit show starting back up I knew it was only right that in the 4th Cypher of the show that Hakeem aka Yazz and Freda Gatz aka Bre-Z joined in and represent the Empire.
Yazz also came out with the colorful Cardi B to introduce an award. This by far was one of the funniest parts of the night.
One of the big awards given during the night was introduced by Kendrick Lamar who presented Snopp Dogg with the I Am Hip Hop Award.
During his acceptance speech Snoop addressed the young MC's offering up words of encouragement and support.
The show continued on with Performance by Young MA "Ooouuu"
Lecrae too delivered a piece that spoke to the America we live in. One of my favorite parts of what he spoke was this
"They said make America great again, wait when was America great again? Was it when they took us from out natives land or was it when they took the natives land?"
T.I Performance continued with the theme of the night with his Black Panther-inspired performance of “We Will Not”
And Desiigner closed out the show with his new single “Timmy Turner,
There was so much more that happened but I don't want to spoil It all! Get ready to laugh and be blown away from this years BET Hip Hop Awards 2016 that will premiere on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. ET. on BET.
