New York, NY – Master P will be honored with the I Am Hip Hop Award at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards. BET plans to celebrate the Hip Hop mogul’s career just a few months after the network aired its No Limit Chronicles documentary series, which detailed the story of P’s No Limit Records.
Past recipients of the I Am Hip Hop Award include legendary artists such as Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Rakim, LL COOL J and Salt-N-Pepa. Last year, BET awarded Lil Kim with the honor.
The 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards will be hosted by The 85 South Show’s DC Young Fly, Karlous Miller and Chico Bean. Many fans may know them as cast members from Nick Cannon Presents Wild ‘n Out.
Top stars such as Lil Baby, Big Sean, City Girls, 2 Chainz and Quavo are scheduled to perform at the event. Burna Boy, Chris Martin, Gucci Mane, Jhené Aiko, Mulatto, Tobe Nwigwe and Ty Dolla $ign are among the other performers booked for the show.
DaBaby leads this year’s nominees with 12 nominations, including two projects competing for Album of the Year. Roddy Ricch is close behind with 11 nominations while Drake and Megan Thee Stallion are tied for third with eight nominations a piece.
