Any rapper that has dropped a viral hit this year will hit the BET stage at this year's Hip Hop Awards. From "Control" freak Kendrick Lamar to Me Time enthusiast 2 Chainz, bars will be on tap. French Montana is also confirmed to take the stage while MC Lyte will be honored with the lifetime achievement 'I Am Hip Hop' award. Kevin Hart is also set to present.
Compton MC Lamar will also be joined by TDE brethren ScHoolBoy Q and Jay Rock. A "hip hop crew" theme permeates the set list as BET reports that "squad members of hip hop's finest groups and indie labels will battle it out crew vs. crew-style for the much-loved Hip Hop Awards Cypher."
Expect the participants to be revealed some time after the Sept. 28 taping at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center.
