The 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards Highlights are here! +many more surprises

Although the show has yet to air, we’ve seen many things on social media that give us a little insight on what’s in store for this years annual BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Uncle Snoop will be hosting the awards along with many other appearances from Hip-Hop’s repertoire of rappers. The actual show was held on Friday, October 9th it won’t air until Tuesday, October 13th.

Vince Staples, Casey Veggies, Black Thought (The Roots), Tink, Doug E. Fresh, Questlove & Redman are among many of the names that will be participating in this years Hip-Hop Awards Cypher. We have yet to know how they’ll be grouped together but considering the names, it’ll be something to see.

Now while those are the on-camera updates of the awards show, there was one incident in particular that happened off camera that many of the attendees weren’t aware of. Rapper Scarface was allegedly arrested at the awards show shortly after accepting his “I Am Hip-Hop” award. It is said that Scarface wasn’t allowed to leave the state of Texas but decided that he didn’t want to miss his opportunity of receiving the honor. Rumors of unpaid child support debt is the reason given for his arrest. So far, no one from Face’s camp has reached out on behalf of the rapper to respond to these rumors.

The police arrested him near his trailer shortly after he walked off the BET stage. #Free’Face.

In the meantime, make sure you tune in on Tuesday, October 13th at 8/7 central. It’s a show you wouldn’t want to miss.
