XXXTentacion was Posthomously Awarded Best New Artist at 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards

While XXXTentacion passed away in the Summer, it’s apparent that we’ll be talking about his brief but influential career for a while. The BET Hip-Hop Awards recognized the questionable rapper by awarding him Best New Artist.

The honor wasn’t the only time that X’s essence was felt in the room. As per DJ Scheme, Vic Mensa tackled the late rapper during the cypher.
