Chris Lighty Tribute, BET Hip Hop Awards 2012: Missy Elliott, Q-Tip & More Perform

Posted in 1 on October 10, 2012 by bobbybounce

The 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards honored fallen music executive Chris Lighty Tuesday night (Oct. 9), uniting enemies and bringing friends together on one stage.

LL Cool J, an artist signed to Lighty’s Violator Management company, commenced the tribute by calling out the fact that the music mogul was “my friend.” Noticeably sad, he welcomed A Tribe Called Quest members Q-Tip and Phife Dawg to take the stage, where they performed their classic hip-hop ode “Award Tour.” #Salute #Respect
