Fat Joe is announced as this year’s host of the BET Hip Hop Awards. GRAMMY-nominated recording artists, actors and entrepreneurs will take the stage on September 30th at the Cobb Energy Center.
The annual celebration brings together hip-hop’s hottest names to pay tribute to the year’s best in hip-hop culture.
“Fat Joe is hip-hop royalty. Throughout his distinguished musical career, he has represented the art form and the Bronx, the birthplace of hip hop. He’s a valued friend of the network and we’ve loved watching and supporting his growth into the superstar he is today,” said Connie Orlando, BET’s EVP, Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy. “We can’t wait to see him take the stage with his vibrant energy and stand with today’s hottest, most loved hip-hop stars.”
“This will be the BIGGEST awards show in history,” Fat Joe said in a statement. “It is truly an honor to host and produce the BET Hip Hop Awards and I cannot thank Connie and the entire BET family enough for this opportunity. We will celebrate music, culture and entertainment, honoring the world’s biggest and brightest stars and making this a night to remember, full of laughs and surprises. Always remember that yesterday’s host is not today’s host.”
