Are you looking forward to watching the BET Hip Hop Awards this year? It has been an “All The Way Up year for DJ Khaled, for sure. With him and his fiancée Nicole Tuck expecting their first child and Jay-Z as his new manager, we should expect the ‘Anthem King’ energy to be through the roof. DJ Khaled is definitely on his A game with over 9 nominations in the following categories: ‘DJ of the Year,’ ‘Best Hip-Hop Video,’ ‘MVP of the Year,’ ‘Track of the Year,’ ‘Album of the Year,’ ‘Hustler of the Year,’ ‘People’s Champ Award,’ and two nods for ‘Best Collabo, Duo or Group.’

“We can’t wait to see his incredible energy, humor and “major” keys brought to life in the show!”, stated Stephen Hill, BET Networks President of Programming.

DJ Khaled mentioned,

“I am extremely honored to be a part of such an incredible show that has watched me grow as an artist and mogul throughout my career. The Hip Hop Awards are synonymous with a night of stellar performances and tributes to the greatest hip hop artists of our time. I am excited to bring cloth talk and the major keys to the Hip Hop Awards for an iconic and memorable show!”

The private taping of the BET Hip-Hop Awards 2016 will take place on Saturday, September 17, 2016, at The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre (new location for show) in Atlanta, GA and will premiere on Tuesday, October 2016 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
