BET Hip Hop Awards 2011~ Predictions

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 11 October 2011 at 3:45 pm


We have less than 5 hours until the best night in Hip Hop begins. Personally, I think that it should be called the Rap awards, but that is another rant. So, will you be tuning in at 8pm? If for nothing else, you should watch for the amazing host, Mike Epps.

LL Cool J is the honoree of the night.  He will join the list of other wonderful legends into the Hip Hop Hall of Fame. This I have GOT to see! I wonder if he will perform….. My request is “Jingling Baby” or “Doing it, and doing it, and doing it well.” But I will be happy with anything. Lol

Performers for tonight will be:

Big Sean, Lupe Fiasco, Roscoe Dash, Wale, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, DMX, Heavy D, T. I., & Wiz Khalifa. And shortly after you figure out that T.I’s parole office granted him permission to perform you noticed that I said DMX…. Yes, DMX AND Heavy D will hit the stage, Lord willing. What? You know how these Hip Hop award shows go.

But what would the Hip Hop Awards be without the cypher line up. Rumor has it that the cyphers will include:

Rick Ross, Tyga, Tech N9ne, Stalley, Soprano, Skillz, Royce Da 5’9”, Reek da Villain, Pill (ATL), Nitty Scott, MC (female indie), Meel Mill ( Philly), Lacrae9 GOSPEL RAPPER!!!), Lady of Rage, Kevin McCall, Kendrick Lamar ( Compton), Joe Budden, Jay Rock (Watts, CA), Gibere Forte, Frenck Montana (Bronx), Estelle, Joel Ortiz (Brooklyn), Dom Kennedy (L.A.), DJ Premier, Crooked I (West Coast), Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, B.o.B., Blind Fury (Freestyle Friday Winner), Bid. K.R.I.T., Ace Hood, Termanology, Ludacris, Eminem, 2 Chainz, Yelawolf, Wale, Wais P (Brooklyn), Machine Gun Kelly (Cleveland), XV, Chris Sutton, Rico Staxx, & Sean Cross.

I know, you are thinking what I am thinking, who are half of these people? Lol. But it should make for a wonderful show tonight.

Now, on to the categories. I have my PREDICTIONS as to who should win each category. Come back tonight to see if my predictions were right.

Best Hip Hop Video

Big Sean f/ Chris Brown -> My Last

Chris Brown f/ Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes –>Look At Me Now

DJ Khaled f/ Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne-> I’m On One

Eminem f/Rihanna -> Love the Way You Lie  PREDICTION WINNER

Kanye West f/ Rihanna -> All of the Lights

Based PURELY on the video quality, I think that Eminem will take this one home. I could be wrong. I see Chris Brown as runner up. But I didn’t vote so I have no say. Lol.

Reese’s Perfect Combo Award

Ace Hood f/ Rick Ross & Lil Wayne -> Hustle Hard (Remix)

Big K.R.I.T f/ Ludacris & Bun B – > Country Shit ( Remix)

DJ Khaled f/ Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne-> I’m On One

Chris Brown f/ Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes –>Look At Me Now  PREDICTION WINNER

Lupe Fiasco f/ Trey Songz -> Out of My Head

Okay, these were some amazing songs, but next to the ENTIRE Watch the Throne album, Look At Me Now wins this one for me, hands down!

Best Live Performer

Busta Rhymes



Lil Wayne

Kanye West

Wow, umm…. I have to say that I love them all. I would have to say Cee-Lo wins this one ONLY because of his versatility. He can rap, but he also has this soulful presence in his live performances. He isn’t just one note so you get to go on this journey with Cee-Lo.

Lyricist of the Year


Lil Wayne

Nicki Minaj

Rick Ross


Some people are NOT going to like me for saying this, but WTF is Rick Ross doing in this category? Can we please define lyricist? Can you tell I am not a Fat man with a bad beard fan? But hands down…. I have to turn on my play-cousin, Lil Wayne, and give this one to Kanye. He says some stuff that keeps me trying to find ways to add it into my daily vocab. Swagu? LOVE IT! Only Kanye.

Hip Hop Video Director of the Year

Gil Green (Drake’s “I’m On One”)

Anthony Mandler (Rihanna’s “ Man Down” )

Chris Robinson (Lil Wayne’s “ How to Love” & Nicki Minaj’s “Moment 4 Life”)

Kanye West ( Runaway)

Hype Williams (Kanye’s “All of the Lights” & Miguel’s “ Sure Thing”) PREDICTION WINNER

Hands down, Hype. Don’t you even part your lips to ask me why! I said it, and I meant it! And Scene.

Producer of the Year

J.U.S.T.I.C.E League

Kane Beatz


Kanye West, Emile, Jeff Bhasker & Mike Dean PREDICTION WINNER

No I.D.

Ummm… I honestly have to have this one as a tie. Between Kanye and his clan, I have to add in Lex Luger.

MVP of the Year

Lil Wayne


Rick Ross


Wiz Khalifa

Again, what is the Hood Santa doing in this category? Ummm, I want Kanye to win, but it would not surprise me if Nicki took this one home.

Track of the Year

Lil Wayne f/ Cory Gunz-> 6 Foot 7 Foot (Produced by Bangladesh)

Wiz Khalifa -> Black and Yellow (Produced by Stargate)

DJ Khaled f/ Drake, Rick Ross 7 Lil Wayne -> I’m On One (Produced by T-Minus)

Chris Brown f/ Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes –>Look At Me Now (Produced by Diplo & Afrojack) PREDICTION WINNER

Big Sean f/ Chris Brown -> My Last (Produced by Lex Luger) PREDICTION WINNER

Okay, the Saints & the Steelers made Black and Yellow, or a remix of it, very popular this year. But again, I HAVE to give it to a tie between Chris Brown and Big Sean.

CD of the Year

Big Sean -> Finally Famous  PREDICTION WINNER

Lupe Fiasco -> Lasers

Nicki Minaj-> Pink Friday

Kanye West-> My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Wiz Khalifa-> Rolling Papers

F— What you heard! I can listen to the ENTIRE Big Sean album. The only other person I can do that to is Miguel. So when I feel like I got my money’s worth, hands down my vote goes to Big Sean. Hopefully he’ll have the title of Finally Awarded.

DJ of the Year


DJ Enuff

DJ Envy


DJ Prostyle

So are we going off of popularity or work produced? I’m confused. I would say DJ Drama for ACTUALLY being a DJ, but Khaled for the popularity due to the format of his CDs.

Rookie of the Year

Big K.R.I.T.


Frank Ocean


Tyler the Creator

Wiz Khalifa

Ummm. I am stuck. Tie between Big Sean and Diggy Simmons. I will go to jail If I confess what Diggy’s voice does to me when it comes on, so I will keep those comments to myself and wait for him to turn legal. Yet again, I  already told you that I love Big Sean, soooooooooo either one can win and I wont be upset.

Made-You-Look Award


Lil Wayne



Wiz Khalifa

SO this should have been called the R.O.C. versus Young Money & oh Yeh Wiz Khalifa Award….lol. I think that Kanye made us look and think this year. But Nicki also made us look. So hmmm… the protégés have out grown the teachers? I say it’s a tie.

Best Hip Hop Blog Site






I feel like I get information faster from Bossip. I feel like Bossip has a true opinion while World Star just reports (sometimes). As far as the others, I have no clue who you are. And if I don’t know… I can’t vote. Lol.

Best Club Banger

Ace Hood -> Hustle Hard

DJ Khaled f/ Drake, Rick Ross 7 Lil Wayne -> I’m On One

Lil Wayne f/ Cory Gunz-> 6 Foot 7 Foot PREDICTION WINNER

Waka Flocka Flame -> No Hands PREDICTION WINNER

Wiz Khalifa-> Black and Yellow

YC Worldwide f/ Futre-> Racks

I don’t go to the club. What? Don’t judge me. I just do things that containg my brain cells rather than assists me in losing them. But anywho. I would ASSUME that Lil Wayne & Waka would have a tie on this one based on the fact that these are the two songs that the females can dance to. And we all know that it is a banger for the fellas if the girls are dancing.

Best Mixtape

Big K.R.I.T.-> Return of 4Eva

B.o.B.-> No Genre

J. Cole-> Friday Night Lights PREDICTION WINNER

Kendrick Lamar-> Section .80

Frank Ocean-> Nostalgia, Ultra

Ummmm. Can I plead the 5th? If I had to choose… I would say, hands down, J. Cole.  To be honest, I love B.o.B but I think that J. Cole bangs just a little harder. But these are just my opinions.

Sweet 16: Best Featured Verse

Busta Rhymes (Look at Me Now w/ Chris Brown & Lil Wayne) PREDICTION WINNER

Lil Wayne (Motivation w/ Kelly Rowland)

Nicki Minaj (Monster w/ Kanye West, Rick Ross, Jay-Z & Bon Iver) PREDICTION WINNER

Wiz Khalifa (Bright Lights, Bigger City w/ Cee-lo Green)

Wiz Khalifa (Till I’m Gone w/ Tinie Tempah)

I say that Busta Rhymes had everyone trying to learn his verse for the entire summer. Nicki also brought the female power to the table and reminded everyone, amongst a sea of males that females can be monsters as well. But if I had to choose just one, I’d choose Busta. But I think it is a tie.

Hustler of the Year



Lil Wayne

Rick Ross

Kanye West

Ummm….. I think that Diddy was the most VISIBLE hustler all year, but I think that Jay-Z wins this one for me.

Verizon’s People’s Champ Award

Chris Brown f/ Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes-> Look At Me Now

Lil Wayne & Cory Gunz-> 6 Foot 7 Foot

Nicki Minaj f/ Drake-> Moment 4 Life

Kanye West f/ Rihanna-> All of the Lights

Wiz Khalifa-> Black & Yellow.

Again, based on the song, Chris Brown. I do, however, think that Nicki is in second place.

Am I wrong? Tune into BET at 8pm and also come back to my blog in REAL TIME to see if my predictions were right.

  1. I’m sorry to annoy you like this but I just discovered your blog and must admit it’s outstanding. One thing that I really feel would help you out though is the SEOpressor wordpress plugin.
