Rapper Trina Receiving BET Hip Hop Award

Hip hop pioneer Trina will be honored at the BET Hip Hop Awards on October 4th. The rapper came to prominence in 1998, for being on a Trick Daddy Song. Almost 25 years later, she will be awarded the I Am Hip Hop Award.

Speaking about being slated to receive the honor, Trina said this:

“As a legend with over 20 years in the music industry, consistency and unity have contributed to my Rockstarr power as a femcee. I believe when one woman wins, whether it’s in front of the camera or behind the scenes, we all WIN. Let’s keep winning!”

The BET Hip Hop Awards will air on BET TV at 9:00 PM Eastern Time on October 4th.
