For most viewers, the most anticipated and captivating part of the annual BET Hip Hop Awards isn’t seeing who walks away with a trophy. Nope. It’s the musical guests and series of cyphers throughout the night. This year’s ceremony was no different. Hosted by DJ Khaled at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater, tonight’s broadcast included performances by Cardi B, Migos, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, and Trina.
As usual, the cypher showcase will feature a mix of established names as well as up-and-coming artists, like Tee Grizzley, 6lack, Fat Joe, Belly, Cyhi the Prynce, and Mysonne. The broadcast will also include an all-female freestyle battle, dubbed “Hip Hop’s fire femcees,” as well as a highly anticipated verse by Eminem.
