2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards: MGV Behind The Scenes Look
The 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards brought out some of the best in the game this past weekend in the hottest city down south at the Atlanta Civic Center. MrsGrapevine.com representative, Netice Grimball, as on the scene and caught up with Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programming for BET holdings, Stephan Hill.
Hill wasn’t suppose to say anything about the show, but we were able to get the scoop on what was in store for this year’s awards. I got Stephen Hill to spill the beans a little on which part of the show he was the most excited about… I’ll leave a little room for suspense… the Ciphers, presented by Sprite, which were, if I might add, pretty cool. BET managed to get Chris Breezy Brown to spit a few bars, and hey the kid can flow. And definitely don’t sleep on Yellow Wolf and Royce 5’9 the flow is crazy “Hi Rhianna!”
Here are a few behind the scenes pictures. We had to sneak a few pics for our readers on the camera phone. More photos to follow when the show airs on Tuesday, October 11th, but we just wanted to share a few with you first.
More photos, and more details on the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards when you continue reading…
Atlanta’s own Young Jezzy and T.I. opened the show with a dynamic performance that defiantly got the audience on their feet. Plus they had the fire in the background to compliment such a hot collaboration with ATL’s finest.
Wacka Flacka Flame took home the award for the hottest club banger with “No Hands,” (which goes to show what Atlanta music is good for, making people dance) he was not there to accept the award but Wale, Roscoe Dash, and Rick Ross gladly accepted it for him! This the only award Wacka will probably get and sadly he’s a no show.

Other great performances included Big Sean, who performed “Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay” (which I love ) with Roscoe Dash, Heavy D and Tyrese, and Lupe and Erykah Badu (just to name a few). The show ended awkwardly though, with a final performance by Heavy D and Mike Epps with a weird conclusion telling everyone “to get yall ratchet asses outta here!” *audience response* huh is that all? And wait a minute… did he just call us ratchet!
More pics and a details coming soon, in the mean time get ready to watch the awards show which airs next Tuesday, October 11th on BET.
