Tonight, the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards will be taped at the Atlantic Civic Center, and I decided to add my two cents in on the topic. I present you, my loyal rumor followers, with my Top 5 Predictions for the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Prediction #1: 50 Cent and Fat Joe will end their long standing feud onstage at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards. I predict that the two rappers will shake hands, hug, and kiss on the cheek (think 50 and Game) during a special tribute for their late manager, Chris Lighty.

Prediction #2 – With 17 nominations, there is no way Yeezy is going to pass on attending the awards, right?! We definitely expect to see him in all of his glory. Well, that is unless Kim Kardashian has another reality or QVC show taping.

I predict that Yeezy will win at least 10 awards and will give an epic acceptance speech for each win. “I wanna thank BET, but the MTV VMAs are the best award show of all time!”

Prediction # 3 – Although the show is not scheduled to air until next Tuesday, October 9 at 8/7c, I predict that the taping of the show will take up at least half of the trending topics on Twitter tonight. Expect Twitter and Instagram to be filled with celebrity photos backstage, rumors of awkward run in’s – think Chris Brown and Drake at the VMAs part II.

Prediction #4 – Rick Ross, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, and Wiz Khalifa are all slated to hit the stage tonight. I predict Rick Ross will finally put a shirt, Meek Mill will have half of Philly on stage with him, 2 Chainz’s outfit will cost more than BET’s stage show, and Wiz Khaifa will give Amber Rose a live sonogram onstage!

Prediction #5: Mike Epps will stutter more times than the amount of Rihanna audience shots at the VMAs. Expect Epps to be funnier than Kevin Hart hosting the VMAs and a lot less PG.

But of course, I can not forget about the most popular part of the awards show – the cyphers! This year’s cypher participants representing the East Coast, West Coast, and Down South include: DMX, Snoop Dogg, and T.I., Eve, A$AP Rocky, Cassidy, Mystikal, Talib Kweli, B.O.B., and more. Make sure you check out “Cypher Replay,” an exclusive behind the scenes, two-part special airing at 8PM on BET on October 1 and 2.
