2017 BET Hip Hop Awards Love Cardi B
The 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards took place in Miami this year and Cardi B was the clear winner of it all — right along with Eminem.
Cardi took home three awards for Hustler of the Year, Single of the Year and Best New Hip Hop Artist, with boyfriend Offset right by her side. Her performance of “Bodak Yellow” has been described as her most poignant and “her most confident performance of the No. 1 record to date,” by HipHopDX’s Editor-In-Chief Trent Clark who watch everything go down.
