2018 BET HIP HOP AWARDS RECAP (FlyGirlDiva)

October 17, 2018

I was so honored to cover this years  2018 BET Hip Hop Awards that took place at The Fillmore on south beach. The show wrapped up Tuesday night  and Rapper Drake led the pack with 11 nominations, followed by Cardi B.

She managed to beat stiff competition from Drake, who headed into the awards show with 11 nominations compared to her 10.

Other big winners included Jay Z and Beyoncé, whose collaboration Everything is Love won Album of the Year, while their track “Apesh*t” won Single of the Year. Lil Wayne was presented with the I Am Hip Hop Award. 

 

I was live on the green carpet sponsored by sprite and talked with some of the hottest artists in the game.
