BET's 8th annual Hip Hop Awards show will be taped tonight in Atlanta at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center. HipHollywood got backstage access during rehearsals and gives us a sneak peek of 2 Chainz's performance (yes he's really playing the piano).
They also talk to BET President Stephen Hill about the show.
"It's going to be a fantastic show," Hill said. "We got Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Future and Diddy are doing a great performance. We got a fantastic tribute to Chris Lighty, who a lot of people may not know because he wasn't a performer, but he was a manager and a real force behind some of your favorite hip hop acts. We have a great all star tribute to Chris."
The 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards will air on BET October 9.
