T.I. Wins Big at BET’s First Annual Hip-Hop Awards

ti.jpgT.I. was the big winner at last night’s first annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, scoring wins for Best Hip-Hop CD of the year for his LP King, Video of The Year for his single “What You Know” and a nod as Hip-Hop MVP of the Year. Other winners included a fresh-out-of-retirement Jay-Z, who beat out fellow music industry moguls such as Diddy and Ludacris for the Hip-Hop Hustler Award. Busta Rhymes took home the award for Best Live Performance. Chicago MC Common beat out several formidable opponents including Lil Wayne and newcomer Lupe Fiasco for the title of Lyricist of the Year. Legendary DJ Grandmaster Flash was honored for his contributions to the genre with the “I Am Hip-Hop” Icon Award. Flash commented, “To get an award for my technological ability means a whole lot more than anything else I’ve accomplished in my life.” The Awards, filmed at Atlanta’s Fox Theater and hosted by comedian Katt Williams, will air on Wednesday, November 15th at 9:00 p.m. A partial list of winners is now available at BET.com.

  • john cochran

    Congrats the the man. He was def the hardest working mc this year. I dont think he has what it takes to really do it how jigga did it though. When real hip hop comes back he will be one of the only southern rappers who survive.

  • nicebodguy22

ATL HO STRAIGHT OUTTA ATLANTIC STATION

  • weezybaby

  • jonjon–23

    How did Jay Z win the hustler award when he’s running his record label into the ground? He’s supposed to be a CEO building careers but instead he’s ruining careers; and he’s so self absorbed that he’s putting out another garbage album instead of running the label.

  • cuzzo

    h-man, i feel you dog but i think that shit was taken outta context, and for the record he did apologize for his comments. congrats to tip, it was his year, period….

  • http://hondro415aol.com Yay Area

    T.I. is dope period. Tha King album coulda been better. It seemed that he didnt take his time putting it all together. Urban legend was the most powerful, dopest album ive heard in years. I repect him, but this year hip hop has been garbage. So hes by himself to take awards.

  • http://n/a Pritchard(Zim)

    its aight that niggaz recognise wat tha king of tha south be doin….

  • Toadman

    Tssss fuck the BET. Who gives a fuck about that! Where is Jeezy? And Ludacris? Why T.I.Bitch? T.I’s the truth? T.I’s the king? Loool! He’s the king of my anus, not the king of south! Platinum x2 so what? 50′s platinum too and he’s not the king of NY (he’s just a bitch in fact :p)! Wake up men!
    …But good lookin for Common (he’s more the truth than T.I)!

    Dirty south 4 life!…except T.I ^^

    “its da south were we real and trill”

  • Beanz

    Iam Happy that Common finally got some reck. He been puting in werk 4 years. T.I. is another rapper who im proud of, every ablum he drops is in my opinion hip hop at it finest. Its 2006 already time 4 RAP to finally come back. Real rap fans it time to step the fuck up. Rap is a form of a life style fuck that commerical shit lets boy-cot that gay commerical shit

  • DA TRUTH

    HELL YEA….KEEP IT PIMPIN PIMPIN REP FOR DA ATL………229 IS NEXT….THAN 912 THAN 770, 678, 478 I REP G.A.

  • Toadman

    Call me a haterz if you want i don’t give a fuck you know! But I’m a haterz who tell the truth: Wayne works more than T.I, Ludacris too, Jeezy too and even if I don’t like 50, I can’t lie: he works! And more than T.I so shut the fuck up bitch! Oh well…who gives a fuck about BET? I’m outta here…

  • Kisha

  • lay

    ti is the sexiest rapper and the KING !!

  • http://source.com one

    this nigga is so wack.fuck the south
    and them shitty ass B.E.T. awards.besides outkast and little brother aint none of yall niggas say’n nothing.people are getting tired of all the ignorant ass music that comes from the south.the south is the reason why hiphop sales are at an all time low.people are getting older and more mature,and so is hiphop.
    no grown ass man or women gives a shit
    what young joc or young jeezy has to say.why do you think so many young adults are into old school music.because the bullshit that comes out from the south is too childish.
    and the lyrics are too bubble gum.
    you mutha fuckas talk about the south is home to some of the most inteligent
    and well spoken niggas in the game,but were they at.there are no niggas like that in the south.just a bunch of slow ass country bumpkins.no wonder the music down there sucks so much.yall niggas need to stop rap’n go to school and get a vocabulary and an education,because yall music is starting to reflect just how simple
    minded and slow nggas in the south are.west side!!!!!!!

    cool interview/article with TI, i love that dude

  • B Gizzle

    Aight, look ima tell you all straight up just like this. If u dont bow to the king i will straight up bitch slap ur hatin ass harder than niggas hatin on TIP. Talkin about T.I. aint workin wut the fuck do you idiot asses think ur talkin about. He made a movie, and a album and both of them tore shit up. He makin another movie (American Gangster) and another album (T.I. vs T.I.P.) Once both of them drop well see what the discussion will be. Once his shit drop u wont be able to shit more than his shit sold. Lets go with the facts…T.I. DID win them awards, and america voted, so if u disagree then who cares about u becuz its all about the majority. If u didnt vote for ur rapper then fuck urself and quit cryin, if u did then T.I. is just straight up better and quit fuckin cryin. U better get used to the king becuz he aint about to go nowhere. He is officially the King of the South, if u think the king sold millions, or even if u dont….just wait til T.I. vs T.I.P. and well see what the talk will be. Otherwise yall folk can stick it up ur ass.

  • Miss Peachy
