NEW YORK  -- Get ready for an explosive night of sizzling performances, comebacks, cyphers and surprises on the BET HIP HOP AWARDS ‘10. Taped from the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta, Georgia, this year's awards brought out the hottest in the game and proved that "hip hop ain't dead." Premiering on Tuesday, October 12 at 8:00 p.m.*, watch the elements ignite as the "cool kids of hip hop" come together for an incredible night of tributes and performances.

Highlights from the 10 performances include: Rick Ross and Diddy performing the hit single "BMF" alongside rap veteran MC Hammer reciting his hit classic "Too Legit to Quit"; Soulja Boy, in his signature white tank top and designer sneakers, capturing the audience's attention with his summer anthem "Pretty Boy Swag"; Gucci Mane and Swizz Beatz giving an electrifying performance of club favorite "It's Gucci Time"; Waka Flocka Flame and Roscoe Dash heating up the stage with their hot collaboration "No Hands"; and, perhaps the biggest surprise of the night, Harlem rap group Dipset reuniting on stage to perform their comeback single "Salute."

 

Other highlights include: Pioneer female rap trio Salt n Pepa accepting the I AM HIP HOP AWARDS ICONS honor; mind-blowing cyphers with old and new school lyricists Ice Cube, Rev Run, Raekwon, Kanye West, Tyga and Diggy Simmons; web celeb Antoine Dodson performing his viral video hit "The Bed Intruder Song"; and closing out the night, Digital Underground delivering a crowd-amping rendition of Tupac Shakur's "I Get Around."
