Snoop Dogg Performs “Who Am I?” and “The Next Episode” at 2018 BET Awards
The 2018 BET Awards go out in style, all thanks to the legendary Snoop Dogg. Taking L.A.'s Microsoft Theater stage at the very end of the star-studded awards show Sunday night (June 24).
Starting things off with a bang, Snoop jumped right to the beginning of his catalog with an energetic performance of his classic Doggystyle single, "Who Am I (What's My Name)." A short while after that, the Doggfather kept the momentum going by performing his portion of Dr. Dre's 2001 single, "The Next Episode."
Flipping the script in a way only he can, Uncle Snoop took fans from peak gangsta rap all the way to the church when he brought a gospel choir onstage to help him perform selections from his Bible of Love album. Snoop even rocked a flowing choir outfit as crooner Sly Pyper joined him to deliver an energetic performance of "Sunrise," while gospel singer Tye Tribbett helped Snoop turn in a live rendition of "You."
Also delivering dope performances Sunday night were like likes of Migos ("Walk It Talk It," "Stir Fry") and Nicki Minaj with YG, Big Sean and 2 Chainz ("Big Bank"). Needless to say, the lineup was pretty awesome, and everyone delivered.
On the awards side of things, hip-hop definitely made its presence felt. Taking home trophies at this year's BET Awards were the likes of Kendrick Lamar (Album of the Year, Best Male Hip-Hop Artist), Cardi B (Best Female Hip-Hop Artist), Migos (Best Group) and more.
