Trina will be receiving her well-earned flowers during the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards.
“I am honored to receive and accept the 2022 I Am Hip Hop Award presented by BET,” said the Miami native in an official press release. “As a legend with over 20 years in the music industry, consistency and unity have contributed to my rockstar 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!”
Most recently, Nelly was presented with the I Am Hip Hop honor during last year’s show. Other recipients of the trailblazing award include Lil’ Kim, Master P, Ice Cube, MC Lyte, and Lil Wayne. Just last year, the culture celebrated Trina during her Verzuz matchup against fellow rapper Eve where the two went toe to toe with some of their most iconic hits. The “Pull Over” emcee first slid onto the rap scene by way of Slip-N-Slide Records, making her debut on Trick Daddy’s 1998 single, “Nann.” With just a little over two decades under her belt, Trina continues to leave an imprint on the industry.
