Bet Hip-Hop Awards 2021: Full list of winners

Yes, chart-topping rap queens Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion tightened up at this year’s Grammy Awards — but their creative juices got swayed 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 to one of the most influential singles of the year, breaking the record for “most streamed song” with 93 million listens in its first week of release. .

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

The 16th annual broadcast—held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia—was filled with live performances from hot new talent, but the standout moment of the night was delivered by a seasoned entertainer.

“Hot in Here” rapper and 2021 I Am hip-hop Honoree Nelly, 46, stole the show with an emotional acceptance speech and a “Turn Up” medley of her biggest hits, including “Dilemma” and “Country Grammar.”
