Benzino Trolls The BET Hip Hop Awards On Instagram—But He Might Have A Point

He may be trolling, but could he be speaking some truth?

Benzino has taken to his Instagram to voice his frustrations about the BET Hip Hop Awards not stacking up to his own Source Awards.

Holding nothing back, he came in for the kill as he threw palm trees at the award show that aired last night.


“You know what, regardless of what anybody say about me, one thing you cannot say is, I DIDN’T PUT ON THE GREATEST, MOST IMPORTANT HIP HOP AWARD SHOW IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF HIP HOP!!!!!! BY F-CKING FAR!!!! #SOURCEAWARDS I GAVE OUT SO MANY AWARDS TO SO MANY DESERVING ARTISTS, AND GAVE THE STREETS NIGHTS TO REMEMBER!!!! NOT JUST A CONCERT, BUT A REAL AWARD SHOW!!! AND WHOEVER DONT AGREE WITH THAT IN THIS INDUSTRY, IS JUST LYING TO THEMSELVES!!! I GOT SO MANY MEMORIES AND STORIES, YALLS HEADS WOULD SPIN!!! BIG UP TO MY PARTNER @therealdavemays THEY STILL CANT F-CK WITH US BRO!!!! ??” one post read.


“THEY NEED TO LET ME EXECUTIVE PRODUCE THE NEXT HIP HOP AWARD SHOW!!!! THEY TRIED TO STEAL THE BLUEPRINT, BUT I GOT IT UNDER ?&?! #SOURCEAWARDS #IRONMIKE ??” another said.

Check out some of his many other IG posts below.


“THIS IS HOW ME AND MY BRO @teddyriley PULLED UP AT ONE OF THE #SOURCEAWARDS IF YALL LOVE HIP HOP AND WANT THE REAL BACK, TELL BET TO GIVE ME A ?, OH AND IM NOT BRAGGING, I’M JUST STATING FACTS!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, ANYBODY CAN PUT ON A CONCERT, BUT I KNOW HOW TO PUT ON AN AMAZING AWARD SHOW!! I EARNED THE RIGHT TO TALK ?!!!! #SOURCEAWARDS ??” a pic of him and Teddy Riley was captioned.

All of the other posts were simply captioned, “#SourceAwards.” Enough said, we guess.

Though the BET Hip Hop Awards are cool, we can’t front and say The Source Awards weren’t always lit. Year after year, the best of the best in the hip hop game would pull up and show out.

It was definitely the place to be tosee the dopest hip hop acts. After the last Source Awards aired in 2002, BET saw an opportunity to give hip hop lovers what they longed for—a show that mainly featured the hottest rappers hitting the stage. For that, hip hop heads like myself thank the network!

But, the truth of the matter is, there’ll never be another Source Awards. Facts Only.
