BET's much hyped about Hip Hop Music Awards aired tonight, October 14. The award show, which was prerecorded a few weeks ago(take note BET Awards) honored those in Hip Hop and included cyphers from veteran and upcoming rappers. The show was emceed by Snoop Dogg who did a great job by the way. Snoop was full of charisma and delivered in a series of skits that featured Nia Long in some of her famed roles.
Presenters: Keyshia Cole, Porsha Williams, and my mind just drew a blank at the rest of the presenters. Winners: DJ Mustard, Future, Pharrell, Casino(Move That Doh), YG, Jeezy, and Rich Homie Quan to name a few. Performances: Common, Vince Staples, Rich Gang featuring Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug(the first of many performances of the night), T.I., Doug E. Fresh(who also received a Lifetime achievement award I believe), Brandy, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, and Yo Yo(I Wanna Be Down), Migos(Fight Night). Audience Sightings: Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez(Love & Hip Hop Atlanta), Mimi Faust(Love & Hip Hop Atlanta), 2 Chainz, Ray J, BustaRhymes, Bow Wow, Future, etc. Cyphers: Wiz Khalifa, Remy Ma, Papoose, Treach(Naughty By Nature), Lil' Mama, Snow Tha Produce, Detroit Che, Murda Mook, G Eazy, Chevy Woods, etc. All in all the 2014 BET Hip Hop Music Awards was very entertaining and I still feel that the 2015 BET Awards should be prerecorded next year. I'm over the live show full of technical difficulties, missed cues, and black outs. Aren't you? If you missed the awards they will reair on Wednesday October 15 at 7 PM EST.
