Who says hip hop doesn’t have a sense of humor? Uncle Snoop flexes his funny bone taking center stage as host of BET’s  Hip Hop Awards 2013.

Premiering TONIGHT at 8 p.m., The Hip Hop Awards 2013 celebrates the year in hip hop music with performances from rap’s elite including Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Future, Meek Mill, Diddy, Rick Ross and more. A surprise reunion from Bone Thugs-n-Harmony brought the crowd to its feet while rap icon MC Lyte was the recipient of the prestigious “I Am Hip Hop” award.


It wouldn’t be the Hip Hop Awards without the ever popular cyphers including a special treat from the Real Husbands of Hollywood, but the hilarity from Kevin Hart and the gang doesn’t stop there.

Directly following the award show is season two of the uproariously funny Real Husbands of Hollywood with back-to-back episodes beginning at 10:00 p.m. The stakes are higher now with new players in the game causing they guys’ egos to swell from boys to mitches. Featuring an all-star supporting cast including Boris Kodjoe, Nick Cannon, J.B. Smoove, Duane Martin, Nelly and Cynthia Kay McWilliams – the upcoming season promises cameos from Hollywood’s biggest names including Katie Couric, Khloe Kardashian-Odom, Kris Jenner, Conan O’ Brien, Wanda Sykes, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Kelly Rowland, Anthony Anderson and more.
