As plenty of rap listeners are well aware, last night marked the airing of this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. It’s an event much like other award shows, meaning that you’re only really tuning in to see who performed. And in the case of BET’s program, they had more than enough of them.
Along with the highly anticipated freestyle cyphers, there were performances from Rick Ross and his Maybach Music Group cohorts, Wiz Khalifa and Chevy Woods, T.I. and Jeezy, Lupe Fiasco and Erykah badu, and many others. We have compiled each and every one here in this post for those of you who either missed out or want to relive T.I.’s return to television.
We don’t blame you; T.I. did kind of kill it helping out Jeezy on “F.A.M.E.” and then rocking his latest single, “I’m Flexin’.” Perhaps the most disappointing part of the night came during Badu and Fiasco’s live rendition of “Words I Never Said.” Maybe the track is too political for the audience, but that place was dead. Anyway, you can watch all of the performances below.
