Congratulations go out to Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus for taking home the 2019 BET Hip Hop Award Tuesday night for Best Collaboration, Duo or Group, for “Old Town Road (Remix); up against acts such as 21 Savage and J. Cole, Cardi B and Bruno Mars, Travis Scott and Drake, Lil Baby and Gunna, and DJ Khaled, Nipsey Hussle, and John Legend.
Although Lil Nas X and the country artist were unable to attend the festivities, once Billy Ray caught wind of his new award, he took to Twitter to thank fans for the continuous support of the single. He also showed major love to the late Nipsey Hussle, dedicating his award to the Cali rap legend. “Thank you @BET @HipHopAwards for Best Collab win. You kept #OTR at No. 1 for 19 weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home & world. Dedicating this win to Mr. @NipseyHussle – a legend gone way too soon.”
This is why Bill Ray Cyrus will always be invited to the cookout! Much love and congratulations!
