Hip hop legend, award-winning rapper and actor Nelly will be honored with the “I Am Hip Hop” Award at the BET Hip Hop Awards on October 5.
The “I Am Hip Hop” award is bestowed to one emcee every year who achieved significant heights throughout a long career.
“I am honored to receive this award and humbled to be in such great company of past artists who have received this award,” said Nelly. “I have been blessed to work with some incredible people in my career, making 22 years go by in the blink of an eye.”
“This award isn’t just about Nelly; it is about my fans, BET, and the people that continue to support me and allow me to do what I love to do,” he added.
Nelly’s Country Grammar, released in 2000, is one of only eight hip hop albums that have earned diamond certification.
