With DJ Khaled as the host, the 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards are sure to deliver plenty of memorable moments. But there’s no doubt that the highlight of tonight’s broadcast will be the stacked lineup of performances as well as the ever-popular cypher showcase. We already know big names like Gucci Mane, T.I., 21 Savage, Big K.R.I.T., and Isaiah Rashad will take the stage; however, the show’s organizers have been tight-lipped about this year’s cypher participants.
Tonight, we’ll present clips from each performance and cypher as they happen throughout the night, so be sure to check back for updates. You can also view the full list of winners here.
