This yr’s BET Hip-Hop Awards came about proper close to XXXTentacion’s house. The ceremony was filmed at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach this previous weekend, and the late Floridian rapper obtained some posthumous love. X was blessed with the Best New Artist award, beating out Rich The Kid, Lil Baby, Juice WRLD, and Blocboy JB. X’s affect on hip-hop, and his premature loss of life, has been one probably the most bittersweet tales the yr. While his music will encourage generations to return, his presence will sorely be missed. X’s mom Cleopatra Bernard accepted the award on her son’s behalf. She was joined on stage by X’s former supervisor Solomon Sounds, and his former lawyer Bob Celestin.
The 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards will air on October 16. As per custom, there will likely be cyphers included all through the award present.
