The awards show has moved from Atlanta to Miami this year, and in the wake of the recent hurricane, the network issued a statement.
“While BET is extremely excited to bring the BET Hip Hop Awards to Miami, we remain sensitive to the millions of victims affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey,” the statement reads. “Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with those who are facing the impact of this catastrophic storm. As a network, we are committed to offering our full support during this most devastating time. Through Hip Hop Awards 2017, our ‘Hip Hop for Hurricane Relief’ will bring together some of the biggest names in hip hop to acknowledge those in need as the country begins the difficult process of rebuilding.”
The BET Hip Hop Awards will air on Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET. See a full list of the nominees here.
