BET Hip Hop Awards

The B.E.T, or Black Entertainment Television Hip Hop Awards show, caters mainly to the urban pop music crowd. Hip Hop, Rap, and R&B are the focal points of the show. Some of the most popular entertainers attend the show to perform, and be honored for their contributions to the entertainment industry.

This particular show is comprised of some of the most talented artists of the past and present. Anyone who watches the show, will be able to get a good idea about new artists coming up, and the artists who helped pave the way for them.

Veteran artists are usually honored for their past work, and sometimes the audience is treated to a glimpse into the music industry and the major players behind the scenes.

The B.E.T awards show is not only entertaining, but enlightening as well. Watching the show is a great way for people to get a good idea about what's going on within the pop culture world. Anyone who considers themselves "unhip" will quickly be brought up to speed.

Although it may had a rather rough start, the award show has grown into one of the most popular awards shows on television. Usually hosted by a popular comedian, the awards show moves along smoothly. Its larger than life display of stage props helps to accentuate each performance.

One of the best things about the B.E.T Hip Hop awards show is the fact that the attendees take pride in being there, and do their part to make it a success.
