Travis Scott's "Astroworld" Takes Home BET's "Album Of The Year"
2018 was a bountiful year, and the true holder of “Album Of The Year” has been widely debated across the board. Here at HNHH, we bestowed the prestigious honor to J. Cole’s KOD, with Travis Scott’s Astroworld securing the second position. Yet there remain many who feel La Flame deserved the crown, and thus his accolades continue to stack. Last night, at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Center, Travis Scott found himself receiving the “Album Of The Year” prize at the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

In the process, Scott’s ambitious album beat out a slew of competitors, including Meek Mill’s Championships, Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You, DJ Khaled’s Father Of Asahd, the Dreamville camp’s Revenge Of The Dreamers 3, and Tyler, The Creator’s Igor. A curious mix to be sure, but such is the way of the BET Hip-Hop Awards. In any case, Travis took home to trophy, a win befitting of his album’s ambitious scope.
