The award show, which will take place in Miami, will be heavily represented by acts from the Sunshine State as well, as Rick Ross, Trina, Trick Daddy, Plies, T-Pain and Flo Rida are also set to hit the stage.
Nominees for the awards were released earlier this month. Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled lead for the most amount of nominations with nine.
As previously reported, DJ Khaled will host the awards show. “I am so excited to host the BET Hip Hop Awards for a second year,” Khaled said in a statement, following the announcement. “This is such an iconic show that highlights the hustle of hip hop artists in the industry. It is a huge honor to be a part of a night that pays homage to some of the greatest talent of our generation and I’m looking forward to the amazing performances and tributes. You know I’ll be bringing the cloth talk and the keys — Hip Hop Awards 2017 is going to be major!”
The show is slated to take place in Miami on Oct. 6, and will premiere on the network on Oct. 10. The We The Best boss recently revealed a new ad for the upcoming award show on his Instagram account. Check out the plug below.
