To be honest I accidentally found out the BET Hip Hop awards show 2018 was coming on, I didn’t see any promotion for it at all.

The 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards are a wrap! Comedian/actor DeRay Davis hosted Tuesday’s (Oct. 16) show and Drake led the nominees with 11 nods, with Cardi B in a close second with 10. Cardi ended up the night’s big winner, thanks to her four prizes and a twerk-tastic performance.


In my opinion the award show was ok, I like that they kept to a schedule. The cypher was aiight; in my opinion the first cypher was probably the weakest out the cyphers. The female cypher was probably the strongest of all the cyphers. I’m very surprised they really didn’t have any high profiled rappers this year.  Lil Wayne, TI and Gucci were the biggest names that were actually there last night.

Lil Wayne was honored with the “I Am Hip Hop Award”. So let’s go over the list of winners my agrees and disagrees.
