Cardi B wins Best New Hip-Hop Artist and much more at the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards Tuesday night (Oct. 10). She beats out Aminé, Kodak Black, Playboi Carti and Tee Grizzley. "I want to thank everybody again, but I want to thank Jesus," she says while accepting the award onstage. "This has been one of the greatest nights of my life but you, you're going to make it better," Cardi continued while pointing at her boyfriend Offset.
The Bronx native is probably one of the hottest artists out right now, period. Her single "Bodak Yellow" is now the longest running No. 1 single from a solo female rapper in Hot 100 history—she has surpassed Lauryn Hill‘s “Doo Wop (That Thing)”, which previously held the title in 1998. The record has already reached platinum status and also helped her own dentist triple her business since the song’s release. Earlier in the night at the awards show,
the 24-year-old rapper performed "Bodak Yellow" and won Hustler of the Year. Cardi B also won Single of the Year for "Bodak Yellow," Made-You-Look Award (Best Hip-Hop Style) and Best Mixtape for Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 2. In total, she walked away with five awards. The BET Hip Hop Awards were previously filmed in Miami on Oct. 6.
