AceShowbiz - The 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards has wrapped with Cardi B named the biggest winner, but some of the best moments are still lingering. Among the highlights of the event which was aired on October 16 were the performances. For instance, Cardi proved that she still got the moves despite just giving birth months ago.
The female emcee kicked off her performance with a rendition of "Get Up 10", the opening track off her debut album "Invasion of Privacy". Backed by a group of female dancers clad in camo outfits, she delivered the first verse of the song before Pardison Fontaine came to the stage to belt out their club banger "Backin' It Up".
Taking her jacket off to reveal a sexy two-piece suit, Cardi got down on the floor and started twerking while spitting her lines. She surely didn't have enough fun dancing when she later got up and continued shaking her booty.
Earlier during the show, Lil Pump teamed up with Gucci Mane to open the award-giving event. Pump opened their set with a performance of "Eskeetit". Mane then joined him onstage, earning a loud cheer from the audience. The two performed "Kept Back" for the first time before ending their set with a remix to Pump's breakout single "Gucci Gang".
Other acts who joined forces for a performance during the event were YG and A$AP Rocky. The duo debuted live performance of their latest collaboration "Handgun". Kicking off the performance from a yellow truck, the former rhymed his lines while dancing. Rocky then ran to the stage to join his collaborator for the rest of the performance.
Elsewhere in the show, Vic Mensa's diss at late XXXTentacion was finally aired. "We all know you won't live that long/ I don't respect [edited] posthumously, homicide ain't new to me/ Catch up with Akademiks at your eulogy," he rapped.
Even though some parts of his diss were edited out by the network, X's parents and family were in audience to watch him perform live. Despite that, he still had no regrets in dissing the late rapper. "I had no idea grieving mother would be in audience to honor her lost son," he said in a video. "However, I vehemently reject the trend in hip-hop of championing abusers, and I will not hold my tongue about it."
BET Hip-Hop Awards took place on October 6 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami.
