Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z And Alicia Keys Win Big At 2010 B.E.T. Hip-Hop Awards
It was a Jay-Z state of mind at the 2010 B.E.T. Hip-Hop Awards Sunday night in Atlanta. The rapper won three awards for his popular track "Empire State of Mind" with Alicia Keys(pictured), taking home Best Video and Perfect Combo, with Jay-Z winning solo for Best Live Performer.
Nicki Minaj was the other big winner at the show, taking home three awards for Rookie of the Year, the Made You Look Style Award and the People's Champ Award. “I’m paving the way for girls,” she said, according to MTV.com. “I wanna thank all the girls of hip-hop.” The show kicked off with a pyrotechnically spectacular performance by Diddy, Rick Ross and DJ Khaled of "B.M.F" which led into Ross's single "MC Hammer." Shortly afterwards, the real MC Hammer took the stage to perform "2 Legit 2 Quit."
Iconic hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa were honored with the I Am Hip Hop Award. B.o.B., Big Boi, Soulja Boy, Camron' and Juelz Santana were among the other performers of the night. Comedian Mike Epps hosted the show, which will air on B.E.T. at 8 PM EST on October 12. –AMY LEE
