“Da Baddest B*tch,” Trina, will be honored with the “I Am Hip Hop Award” at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards.
With more than two decades in the music game and multiple hits under her belt, Trina became a household name in the culture early in her career and has maintained her title as the baddest.
“I am honored to receive and accept the 2022 I Am Hip Hop Award presented by BET,” Trina said in a statement. “As a legend with over 20 years in the music industry, consistency and unity have contributed to my Rockstarr power as a femcee. I believe when one woman wins, whether it’s in front of the camera or behind the scenes, we all win. Let’s keep winning.”
Trina’s verse on Trick Daddy’s “Naan” debuted in 1998, and that verse, filled with iconic lines, propelled her into music and away from a career as a realtor.
“Trina is a multi-talented hip hop artist who has set cultural trends and continues to be passionate about giving back to her community,” Connie Orlando, EVP, Specials, Music Programming and Music Strategy said. “She has paved the way for several artists, and we look forward to honoring her impact and legacy on hip hop’s biggest stage, BET Hip Hop Awards 2022.”
Fat Joe is set to host the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards. The annual show will premiere on Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. est.
