The king of covers
October 12th, 2011
Just try and tell me you didn’t get Black And Yellow stuck in your head a million times in the last year. Or talked more about what Nicki Minaj would wear next versus Lady Gaga. Both of those artists were big winners at last night’s BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, Georgia.
And the show itself did not disappoint. From LL Cool J receiving the I Am Hip Hop award to Heavy D closing the show with retro hit “Nothing But Love” (and getting joined on stage by Tyrese!) to a surprise appearance from fresh-outta-jail T.I. alongside Young Jeezy, the awards were a celebration of hip hop’s finest. And it delivered.
