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.
A video from inside The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater demonstrates X’s mom Cleopatra Bernard accepting the honor on her late son’s behalf.
