BET Hip-Hop Awards 2021: Tyler, Cardi B and Megan top full list of winners


Yeah, chart-topping rap queens Cardi B and Megan The Stallion got stiffed at this year’s Grammy Awards — but they got their creative juices flowing again at Tuesday night’s 2021 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Dynamic “WAP” duo Cardi, 28, and Megan, 26, dominated the star-studded night with a trio of top honors: Song of the Year, Best Collaboration and Best Hip-Hop Video.

The triple trophy win represented a measure of awards show justice for one of the most influential singles of the year, which broke the record for “most-streamed song” in its first week of release with a whopping 93 million listens.

Meanwhile, Album of the Year winner Tyler, The Creator took home two BET Awards, as did his peers Jay-Z and Lil Baby.

The 16th annual telecast — held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia — was filled with amped up live performances from hot new talents, but the night’s standout moment was delivered by a veteran entertainer.

“Hot in Herre” rapper and 2021 I Am Hip-Hop Honoree Nelly, 46, stole the show with an emotional acceptance speech and a “turned up” medley of his greatest hits including “Dilemma” and “Country Grammar.”
