Tonight's the night! One of the biggest nights in hip-hop will be happening tonight on BET when they finally air the 2019 Hip Hop Awards. The thing is, hip-hop doesn't have too many nights celebrating the genre and culture itself but the annual BET Hip-Hop Awards acknowledges the efforts and work put in by artists, producers and everyone else that makes contributions to the culture. And, frankly, it's the only award show that's actually in tune with what's going on in hip-hop. 

This year, Cardi B leads the nominations with ten nods in total while DJ Khaled, Travis Scott and J. Cole follow behind her with eight each. Drake has seven nominations while Nipsey Hussle and Megan Thee Stallion tie for five each.

The award show as filmed on Saturday at Atlanta's Cobb Energy Center and will air tonight on BET. We'll be keeping you up to date on the latest winner. Peep the nominations below. The name's of the winners will be emboldened.
