Katt Williams to host BET Hip Hop Awards
Katt Williams has been signed on to host this year’s BET Hip Hop Awards. The show will be taped on October 18 at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center and will air on October 23 at 8:00 P.M.
Leading the charge this year is Lil Wayne with a record-breaking twelve award nominations, including MVP of the Year, Lyricist of the Year, and (sigh) Hustler of the Year. That’s nice, BET.
In one of the highlights of this year’s show, Russell Simmons will be honored with the “I Am Hip Hop” Icon Award. The oddly named award commemorates an individual who has made notable contributions to the hip hop community.
