The 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards got off to a blazing start–with Gucci Mane, Travi$ Scott, Young Thug and Quavo opening the show.
A triumphant Guwop emerged with his “1st Day Out The Fed” verse and joined by Zaytoven on a white grand piano. Travi$ joined Gucci onstage as they ripped into their track “Last Time.”
Young Thug and Quavo took the stage for “Pick Up The Phone,” in one of the more colorful moments–with animated screens adding to the crazy vibes. La Flame almost broke his telephone booth onstage.
Last week, Guwop announced that he landed the book deal with Simon & Schuster and after debuting at No. 2 on Billboard 200 with his album, Everybody Looking back in July, he’s set to drop another LP, Woptober, later this year. He’s also slated to appear in Harmony Korine-directed film, The Trap, alongside Al Pacino, Benicio del Toro and James Franco. On top of that, he’s planning to release a clothing line dubbed Delantic.
“We just trying to make a super-duper dope clothing line,” said Gucci in an interview with GQ. “Exclusive. Super trend. Super hip. Well made. Well crafted. Something that you be proud to spend your money on, and when you get it you really got a collectors item.”
