As promised I am back with another recap and more pictures! Last night Saturday (September 29), the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards was taped at The Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center. Comedian Mike Epps hosted this year’s event which was opened by Wiz Khalifa who brought out special guests Young Jeezy and Juicy J. Rick Ross and his MMG imprint were reppin their clique to the fullest. Ross performed as well as Meek Mill. After performing “Amen”, the Philly native brought out Kirko Bangz for their collaborative track “Young & Gettin It”. Diddy took the stage for an all-star line-up which included French Montana, Uncle Luke and Future. Machine Gun Kelly sure is a wild boy. He jumped down from rooftop! T.I., and 2 Chainz rocked solo sets while Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe and 50 Cent shared the same stage for a Chris Lighty tribute. Hip-Hop legend Rakim received the “I AM Hip-Hop” Award. The show will be televised next month Tuesday (October 9) at 8pm on BET. Check out the red carpet pics here!
