BLACK CARPET PICS: Celebs Roll To The 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards

TheYBF.com hit the Black Carpet for last night's 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards.  And trust us, you didn't miss a damn thing if you weren't there.  But as always, we've got you covered on who hit the carpet.

 

Egos were big, outfits were horrible.  The usual.  Check out our photog Derek White's pics inside....

We won't spoil things in case you're planning on watching and tell you who won what (these Awards are taped).  But we do have a few spoilers at the end of the post about who performed.  Now for pics rom the somewhat disappointing black carpet at the Atlanta Civic Center.

The gorgeous Tracee Ellis Ross hit the carpet, of course, to pub her upcoming BET show "Reed Between The Lines."  She rocked a silver 3/4 sleeve soft shimmering mini dress.  And posed it up with her actor brother Evan Ross and his girlfriend.

Love the hair, hate the choice of fringed Louboutin boots with this dress.  Actually not loving the dress either.  Cheapens her usual chic and polished look.

Diamond thought Halloween came early in this all black look.

Not sure what she was going for....but this AINT IT.  A cheap taffeta/chiffon mix of maxi skirt with a cropped black leather jacket with red embellishments on the back and this blue tipped hair....and dark makeup....I just can't.

She kicked it with Fantasia's ex Young Dro.

Host Mike Epps hit the carpet with his wife Michelle.  Not loving this dress for her either but she's one of the only people who classed up the joint a bit.

Rick Ross, DJ Khaled and the Maybach Music Group folks hit the carpet together.

Shawty Lo rolled to the event looking pissed off.  Was this on purpose?

Oh Nelly....

Oh really El Debarge? Ok.

Da Brat hit the carpet in VERY good spirits (if you catch our drift).

The "Reed Between The Lines" kids (l-r) Nadji Jeter, Zoe Hendrix, and Zoe Soul made an appearance.

Roscoe Dash looked his usual.

Still trying to figure out why Porscha Coleman hits every single carpet known to man. 

Award recipient LL Cool J was there with his wife Simone.

He received an IAMHIPHOP award last night.

DJ Drama was there.

Twista hit the carpet.

Amar'e Stoudemire found his way to the ATL for some reason.

Toya's hubby Memphitz was there on the carpet.

Barry Floyd/Tee Tee was there.

Daryl Mitchell hit the carpet last  night.

Jeanette Jenkins rocked a cute black cocktail dress for the ocassion.

Not the whole Louis Vuitton Damier sweater and gold chain Ace Hood...

 

"Reed Between The Lines" co-star Malcolm Jamal Warner was there.

Busta, Spliff Star, and all their homies hit the carpet:

Feel like they just snapped a high school homecoming pic..

And Webbie made an appearance looking like he just stepped out of cell block D.

 

SPOILERS:  Here's a glimpse of who performed:

  • Opening Performance by Jeezy who brought out T.I. (Crowd went nuts.)
  • Lupe Fiasco with a live band. (He went Rock & Roll with a moving performance, but slightly weird.)
  • Wiz Kalifah (Half naked while performing as usual.)
  • Heavy D did a medley of his old songs. (Had the place on fire.)
  • Rick Ross, Wale, and the MMG performed.
  • LL Cool J was the I AM HIP HOP recipient. (He gave the an amazingly profound acceptance speech in the form of a poem. And challenged artists to think outside of the norm & reach for greater heights.)

Im sorry but I have to speak on this hip hop dress code. By all means, I agree a suit could be pushing it. But if you can wear what you have on at the Hip Hop awards and go to the grocery store, to the movies or to wash the car and not look outta place...well I woulda chose sumthin else..Im just sayin. Looks like pics from a car show to me. woop-woop

Nelly, has made more

Nelly, has made more successful appearances than recordings. Ace Hood's hustlin hard, but no one cares but Khaled. WALE just doesn't gel with Rozay. Image and Identity conflict. Webbie's Blood'n now? Diamond, you need a hit. Appearances don't sell product that's non-existent. The BET Awards can not go another year w/o A-List Hip Hop appearances and performances. Still, BET...SALUTE!.

look at these idiots...and

look at these idiots...and now that i know who wore what and who performed why should I watch? Rap performances are usually awful. because 9 times outta 10 they rap over a track bring 500 people on stage. i dont know why BET wastes money putting this mess together...and hip hop or not Ima need everyone over 30 to stops dressing like my 12 year old son and the few who did try to class it up looked silly amongst them. Tracy Ellis still got ass though...i'll watch for that

This is the Hip Hop Awards...

This is the Hip Hop Awards... Not Mtv or the regular BET awards show... So I wasn't expecting people to go all out, I don't see why people go so hard on black entertainers... People could wear whatever they want... How bad is your life that you have to put down every person you see?...
Jane Doe's picture

I can answer that for you,

I can answer that for you, blacks are there own worst critic, and it is sad to see how low some are. This is a hip hop show, and like I said previously what rapper you know other than fake diddy that raps in suits. This is the one award show were they can be comfortable, but its the blacks that heate when Lady gaga wore a dam meat dress to mtv and the prayed to the devil last award show, but they call us tacky. I do not listen to half the musical artist on here other than DMX, but right is right and wrong is wrong we been bashing our selves for way to long.

He's wearing it cuz they are all a part of G-Unit. I still think it's whack as hell to wear a G-Unit shirt, but I will give him a little credit for at least being signed to G-Unit.

Where do I began? Ok, Evan Ross and Diamond, seriously, what the hell where they thinking? Tracee, the dress, yes. The boots, hell no Mike Epps wife made a very bad choice, the dress does not flatter her at all. Webbie....... All the other rapper, Im not really surprised with the outfits they choose
My take's picture

Even Traci Ellis Ross had to

Even Traci Ellis Ross had to cheapen it up to fit into this mess--that's sad that she had to go there to do her promo. We all know good and well we wouldn't have seen her in that mess otherwise. Tough economic times indeed.

I think they are dress

I think they are dress appropriately for the event. It's honoring hip hop so they obviously are going to dress according to the hip hop culture. Everybody is harping on sagging and none of them are actually sagging or showing their butts. It would be different if they went to the Oscars dressed like this. There is such a thing as overdressing. Hmmmm...Tracey, she wasted a good body on a bad dress. Don't really know what she was thinking with this one.

Dont know if its just the hip

Dont know if its just the hip hop crowd but black men need to do better. This group looks like participants at a gang convention. El DeBarge really looks classy and elegant like he is on the red carpet at an awards show. The rest looks ignorant and criminal. Its time to leave the boyish clothes back in high and middle school fellas. When you are over 25, its time to pull the pants up and own at least one suit, button down shirt, tie, silk hankerchief, cuff links, socks and leather shoes. And, we wonder why white men get more respect. SMDH! I was hard pressed to find husband, fiance or even father material out of this bunch (except EL and LL) and I am willing to bet they have more baby mama's than money. SMDH x's 10. Ugh!

The Hip Hop Awards is not

The Hip Hop Awards is not supposed to be a classy event, it is just a tone down version of the Source Awards. There fore if one remembers the Source Awards and from when the Hip Hop Awards started it is supposed to be a reflection of these dudes in their videos.

I so agree with your

I so agree with your comments. I'm convinced hoodness/ghettoness is a generational curse. Lord deliver us from evil, for real! Forget not sagging your pants past age 25; how about never sagging your pants at all? Remember the days when black men and women (no matter how little they had) dressed with class and pride? They'd never come out to an event not looking their very best, and carrying themselves with self-respect. Now this...

This looks like a southern

This looks like a southern coon fest. I'm soo tired of the BET Hip Hop Awards being held in the south(Atlanta to (precise). They should put it in NY or LA the south is NOT hip hop and will NEVER be considered hip hop. I bet when they were honoring the G.O.A.T LL Cool J,southern "rappers" were hating. The South hip hop "rappers" are trash,leave the rapping to the lyrical rapper up north(DC going on up to Philly). I'm NOT even from NY and I agree that southern rap is trash and garbage. Nobody at this awards is even worth winning an award and why do I see mostly southern swag less monkeys there?? Ughh,the south is lame and so are their "rappers". Thank god,my husband is from up north (Brooklyn) and NOT the south. Natasha,please stop reporting on that convicted,ignorant thug T.I,he's ignorant,he uses drugs,and he can't speak correctly. The south can have the BET "Hip Hop" awards.

@Jenny Jones Shut Your fat,bitter,angry black ass up. You must of been very offended about what I said because you're typing in caps,which tells me you're mad. Cry me a river,build a bridge,and get over it. That was my opinion and if you don't like what I had to say,then you should've skipped over my comment. So,kill yourself because you're doing to much trying to get attention so have a million seats in Madison Square Garden Losers. You're black,fat,angry,bitter,jealous,and you're full of hatred typing in CAPS,lame.
