Fat Joe will be firing up the A-T-L on September 30 as the host of the BET Hip Hop Awards.
“This will be the BIGGEST awards show in history,” the Terror Squad leader said Tuesday in a statement. “It’s truly an honor to host and produce the BET Hip Hop Awards and I can’t thank the entire BET family enough for this opportunity.“
The annual show will be taped at Cobb Energy Center in Atlanta on Friday, September 30. The broadcast will air Tuesday, October 4, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on BET.
“We’re going to celebrate music, culture and entertainment, honor the biggest and brightest stars in the world, and make this an unforgettable night full of laughs and surprises,” the “Lean Back” rapper continued.
“Fat Joe is hip-hop royalty. He has represented the art form and the Bronx, the birthplace of hip-hop, throughout his outstanding musical career,” said BET’s Connie Orlando. “He is a treasured friend of the network, and we’ve loved seeing and supporting his evolution to becoming the superstar he is today.”
“We can’t wait to watch him take the stage with his vivacious energy, standing together with today’s hottest and beloved hip-hop stars,” Orlando added.
The BET Hip Hop Awards 2022 nominations, performers and presenters will be announced at a later date.
