Last night Thursday (August 22), the BMI Hip Hop Awards took place at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. The event honored the world’s premier songwriters, producers and publishers of the most-performed R&B/Hip-Hop songs of the previous year, as well as the presentation of the Social Star Award, R&B/Hip Hop Songwriter, Producer and Publisher of the year. Cash Money/YMCMB’s Birdman and Slim were named BMI Icons at this year’s awards. Trina, Ace hood and Curren$y performed some of their most successful Cash Money hits while Juvenile and Mannie Fresh took the stage. Lil Wayne, Juelz Santana, Rocsi Diaz and Nicki Minaj were also in attendance.
For the occasion, Birdman wore a $1,000 Givenchy Columbian-Fit Face-Print Shirt which is the same exact shirt that Future wore here. Birdman’s shirt features a face print and stars on the front, point collar, hidden button front, and long sleeves with barrel cuffs.
