Comments Off on What Black Twitter Did Not Like About The 2022 BET Hip-Hop Awards

The BET Hip-Hop Awards is one of the biggest nights in rap, but many viewers were not impressed by what they saw.

One of the topics Black Twitter was not pleased with was City Girls’ Yung Miami’s Caresha Please tying with rapper Noreaga &  DJ EFN’s podcast Drink Champs, which has been airing since 2016, for best hip-hop platform.

Some Twitter users felt Yung Miami’s man, Diddy, paid off BET to get her an award.

Fans felt other nominees, such as The Breakfast Club, Complex, Million Dollaz Worth of Game, and Versuz, deserve the award over the relatively new Caresha, Please

Diddy’s son, Christian “King” Combs, was also not received well as viewers criticized him for not having an original sound.

They said they believe King Combs tries too hard to sound or act like his father when he was in his 90s Bad Boy era, instead of having his own identity. 

Older fans of rap were not moved by the new generation of rappers, even though they were the stars of the show. 

Some feel the cyphers are not up to par with those from the past, and new rappers do not have much of a stage presence.
