Celebrating the music, legacy, and the impact of Weezy, the BET Hip Hop Awards will honor the Young Money honcho for his years in music. There’s no doubt that Tunechi has already left his mark in the culture and is now rebounded as one of the greatest rappers alive and this year’s honor will solidify his mainstream success. Hosted by comedian Deray Davis at Miami’s Jackie Gleason Theater, the show will hit airwaves October 16th.
With Wayne and Birdman recently settling the Cash Money vs. Young Money dispute, the news of this honor will give all Weezy fans even more to celebrate after Tha Carter V drops.
