Jump to: navigation, search

The BET Awards for Best Male and Female Hip-Hop Artist are given to honour the outstanding achievements they have made in Hip hop. The award is based on their work of albums, singles and videos released within the eligibiltyy period. In 2007 there was no award category for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, there was only the BET Award for Best Male Artist which was renamed the BET Award for Best Hip-Hop Artist. The reason is that most female rappers had not released any promotional material. T.I., Kanye West, Jay-Z and Drake are the only rappers to win the Best Male Hip-Hop Artist more than once; Jay-Z and T.I. have each won twice and Kanye West and Drake three times. T.I. being the only rapper to win that award back to back, in 2006 and 2007 respectively. On the female front, only Missy Elliot and Nicki Minaj have attained back to back victories, with Elliot winning in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and Minaj in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, respectively. Minaj is the first and only rapper to win "Best Hip-Hop Artist", for both male and females, 5 years in a row consecutively.
