Music Fab: BET's Hip Hop Honors Lineup+J-Hud & T.I. Blow Up The Charts
Oct 08 | by Natasha
Today BET announced that nominee MVP Lil’ Wayne, multi-platinum rapper Ludacris, West Coast boss The Game, and dirty south stunner Young Jeezy will top off an all-star roster of performers, including Common, T-Pain, Lady of Rage and N.E.R.D. Delivering nothing less than an electrifying show, the BET HIP HOP AWARDS will go down at Atlanta’s Civic Center on Saturday, October 18 and premiere on BET Thursday, October 23 at 8:00 p.m. It'll be hosted by Katt Williams of course. Showcasing past and present music icons, this year’s BET HIP HOP AWARDS takes the competition to a whole new level with scheduled appearances by a slew of hip hop heavyweights including GZA, Wu-Tang Clan, Raekwon, Masta Killa, U-God, Inspectah Deck and RZA. Adding to the hype, rapper Jadakiss will pump up the crowd as celebrity announcer, while the famed DJ Drama spins all night. A special tribute will also be paid to female pioneers in hip hop who have paved the way for women in a predominantly male industry. Nice. In other news, Jennifer Hudson's self titled album is #2 on the Billboard charts this week. And it's the biggest debut for any female R&B album since 2004. Congrats Jenny! And T.I., who released last Tuesday with Jenny, is killing the charts with his Paper Trail album. It's #1 everywhere and his singles "Live Your Life" and "Whatever You Like" are also #1 and/or approaching it everywhere right now. Congrats Mr. Harris! Alicia Keys spotting in NY and info about Jennifer Hudson's pending wedding to David when you read the rest... Alicia Keys was spotted shopping at Gucci in NY yesterday afternoon. Cute boots. Sounds like Jennifer Hudson is planning the mother of all weddings. And that's a lot, considering some of the big-ticket nuptials by celebrities and the age of Bridezillas. She says she wants a wedding that will be her idea of perfection. Hudson says she wants it to be so over the top that she'll be 80 years old and people will still be raving about it. In case you missed it, J-Hud is going to marry David Otunga, whom many people remember from being on the "I Love New York 2" reality show. Despite all the talk on the Internet about the matchup, Hudson is going all-out for it. She says she wants her big day to be more of "a production" than a wedding.
