About Us

Yo! Raps is an award-winning global urban online magazine launched in 2006 and has quickly emerged as one of the premier urban music websites on the web. Our primary purpose is to provide information about Hip-Hop, Rap, R&B and Soul combined with multiple daily updates to the young urban demographic at its website. Get your daily dose of music!

The BET Awards, which celebrate Black excellence in music, culture and sports, were presented Sunday (June 26) at the Los Angeles Microsoft Theater. Lizzo kicked off the show, hosted by Taraji P. Henson, with a shining performance of her latest hit, “About Damn Time.” Additionally, Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored with the “Lifetime Achievement Award,” which has previously gone to the likes of Whitney Houston, Prince and more.

Doja Cat was the year’s leading nominee with six nods, followed by Drake and Ari Lennox with four apiece — but all three artists left with zero wins. Bruno Mars accepted the prize for “Album Of The Year” for “An Evening With Silk Sonic,” joined onstage by songwriter/producer D’Mile in place of his overseas musical partner Anderson .Paak, and Silk Sonic also took home the best group award too.
