BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 DJ Khaled and Rick Ross gave a tribute to Luke Skywalker, an award he should have won years ago. Back in the day Uncle Luke was the man with his group,”Two Live Crew.” He broke barriers, fought the law to be able use his words whether you agreed or not, he fought and won. He wanted parental advisory on his albums back then, he created parental advisory for the parents, his award and tribute is long over due.
He went through a lot with negative people trying to shut him and his music down but he never quit, if he got arrested so be it, he was fighting for a cause, freedom of speech. It was so good to see the man who created booty music, I lived off his music back in the day. He almost shed a few tears when DJ Khaled thanked him for giving him a chance in the music industry. Without Luke, who knows where DJ Khaled would be today.
Trina, Trick Daddy, Rick Ross performed with Uncle Luke in a surprise performance. This man did not slow down, he performed his a$$ off and the tribute to the man he was amazing and over due. DJ Khaled, Trina, Trick Daddy and Rick Ross honored Uncle Luke with an amazing performance. Trina looked damn good and she was not missing a beat.
All in all this was the best hip hop awards show ever, everybody performed they a$$ off and to see DJ Khaled dedicate his life to his son was uplifting. DJ Khaled he is the best and all he does is win win win.

Cardi B Nominated For Two Grammy’s
“Love & Hip Hop: New York” former reality star Cardi B has exceeded her dreams in the year 2017, from a stripper to an Instagram sensation to a reality star and now a rapper, Cardi B has been nominated for two Grammy Awards. Talk about never allowing the past to define your future, Cardi B is an inspiration to anyone who has a dream and a past, never give on your dream and sometimes your past may work in your favor.
The “regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx” was not only the breakout reality star but her catch-phrases and her no nonsense attitude filled our television screens every week for an hour. We instantly fell in love with the girl from the Bronx and we are definitely happy to see her in the space she’s in.
Cardi has been nominated for two Grammy Awards which is a first for a female rapper. Her song, “Bodak Yellow” has been nominated for two Grammy’s, rap song and rap performance, the category rap performance is a new one on me. That’s really odd but I’m not hating on Cardi, I’m glad to see that she has been nominated for any song this year. This was her first year as a performer, that was a feat in itself.
She put out her first mix tape, “Gangsta B4tch Music, Vol. 1,” last year, it was a little heavy but with her catch-phrases it didn’t do so bad for her first release. “Vol. 2” was released at the beginning of the year, and by the spring, she signed a deal with Atlantic Records. That’s when “Bodak Yellow,” hit and it became the new women’s anthem.
“Bodak Yellow” raced up the charts and knocking Taylor Swift off the top of the pop category. She became the first female rapper to score a solo No. 1 since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” almost twenty years ago. She did that by herself without any collaborations, that’s what you call a real hustler!!
Everything seems to be glowing up roses for Cardi, she is now engaged to Offset from the Migos and plans to marry her rapper fiance’ on a VH1 special!! We are so proud of Cardi B and her accomplishments and we wish her the best of luck with her Grammy nominations. The look on Nicki Minaj’s face I’m sure is priceless.
