UNCLE SNOOP RETURNS TO THE BIGGEST STAGE IN HIP HOP TO HOST THE BET “HIP HOP AWARDS” 2015

Third time’s the charm as entertainment icon Snoop Dogg aka Uncle Snoop and BET Networks team up again for the biggest night of hip hop, electrifying cyphers, powerful performances and legendary tributes that encompass the BET “HIP HOP AWARDS” 2015! Highly respected with more than 20 years in the industry, Uncle Snoop continues to set trends and pave the way for both new and established artists. At last year’s “Hip Hop Awards,” Uncle Snoop wowed the audience with his hilarious monologue and skits as well as witty, OG banter throughout the show. An entertainment icon, Snoop is affectionately known as Uncle Snoop in the music industry for the leadership and guidance he provides to both established and up and coming artists. With more than 20 years in the business, Uncle Snoop has become an international name for his work in music, film, entrepreneurship and philanthropy. 

“With the huge success of the first two shows, I’m excited to host my third BET ‘Hip Hop Awards’ this year,” said Uncle Snoop. “We’re gonna do it big with more surprises and more performances—you’re not gonna wanna miss this!”  

  

For a second year in a row, Drake leads the BET “Hip Hop Awards” 2015 with twelve impressive nominations for ‘Best Live Performer,’ ‘Lyricist of the Year,’ ‘MVP of the Year,’ ‘Album of the Year,’ ‘Hustler of the Year,’ ‘Made-You-Look Award (Best Hip Hop Style)’ and as a featured artist for two ‘Sweet 16: Best Featured verses,’ ‘Best Hip Hop Video,’ two ‘Best Hip Collabo, Duo or Group’ and ‘People’s Champ Award’ nods.
