As usual, this year's BET Awards were full of surprises. Beyonce and Jay Z went into the 2014 BET Awards ceremony leading with four nominations, but this was Pharrell and August Alsina's night. With two wins each, the performers proved that their charting albums were no fluke.
The Billboard Music Awards are going down this Sunday on ABC, and today we've learned that they've tapped Ludacris to host the event.
Luda has been busy filming "Fast & Furious 7", as well as putting in work on his long-awaited album Ludaversal. He released the single featuring Jeremih recently, "Party Girls."
Chief Keef has had dialogues with pop stars before--you may remember his short-lived "beef" with Katy Perry earlier this year--but his exchange with Lady Gaga last night following her AMA interview was a much more positive, though no less hilarious encounter.
The 2013 American Music Awards are going down right now in L.A. at the Nokia Theatre. While the event isn't strictly hip-hop, you will see Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, R. Kelly and Justin Timberlake take the stage.
Rihanna may only be 25 years old, but she'll be the first artist honored for her career achievements at this year's American Music Awards. RiRi will receive the first ever AMA Icon award at the ceremony later this month.
Kanye West has had a memorable history at the VMAs. Apart from contributing 6 memorable perfomances over the last ten years, he's also had a backstage meltdown, and experienced one of the most infamous moments of his career-- the Taylor Swift incident.
The BET Awards are always eventful. This past weekend the event rounded up some of the biggest names in the hip-hop industry, to dish out awards, perform on stage, walk the red carpet, and generally keep things hip-hop.
