Nicki Minaj, Drake Win Big At BET Hip Hop Awards, MC Hammer Performs

After Rick Ross performs "MC Hammer," the legend of the same name plays a '90s classic, as Lex Luger, Young Money and Jay-Z & Alicia Keys win big.

At October 2nd’s BET Hip Hop Awards show rising star Nicki Minaj was honored with three awards, "Rookie of the Year,"
"Made You Look Style Award," and "Favorite by Fans," while Young Money labelmate Drake snagged the coveted "MVP of the Year" prize. Other big winners at the Atlanta held ceremony included Waka Flocka Flame producer Lex Luger, who won "Track of the Year" for Rick Ross’ "Blowin' Money Fast (B.M.F.)" and Jay-Z and Alicia Keys whose smash hit “Empire State of Mind” was given the "Perfect Combo Award." 

One of the night’s biggest moments was the reunion of The Diplomats. For the first time in years the Harlem Rap collective, represented by main members Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freekey Zeekey made a televised appearance together.  

The show also featured performances by Big Boi, Yelawolf, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, and a show opening performance by Diddy and Rick Ross of the aforementioned "B.M.F." and "MC Hammer," which culminated in a surprise appearance by early 1990s Rap legend MC Hammer who then went on to perform his hit 1991 "2 Legit 2 Quit."

Once again the annual ceremony’s cyphers were crowd pleasers with G.O.O.D Music cypher, led by Kanye West and featuring Pusha T, Common, and Big Sean being the apparent favorite of the fans in attendance.

The 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards are scheduled to air on October 12.

    I love hip hop dx. I can always count on you for my pop music news. That pic of Nicki demonstrates to young women everywhere how to be a pop star. Nicki Minaj is now the # 1 MC. Damn can't believe I'm sayin' that shit. Does anyone even read what the names of the awards are??? Made You Look Style Award???? What does that have to do with the music?? Where's best underground rapper of the year award? Drake is MVP??? Who'd he battle to win that title? Hip Hop isn't repped to the fullest anymore. But da saddest part is niggaz will continue to get paid and watch this hip hop shit fall apart. Ya'll "real" rappers know this chick is wack, but let her get a pass.
