The 2016 BET Music Awards are around the corner and the network has just announced the presenters of the night. A music mogul roster of Damon Dash, Birdman, Jermaine Dupri and Snoop Dogg.
The four will be handing out trophies at the Awards show and will likely also create some hype for their Music Moguls reality show which will air on BET.
The four Hip-Hop industry veterans are also set to star in the new reality show Music Moguls which will air on BET.
Over eight 60-minute episodes, viewers will be exposed to the behind-the-scenes actions of Dash, Birdman, Dupri, and Snoop.

The chart-topping Drake leads the nominations list with 9 nods including ‘Best Male Hip Hop Artist,’ ‘Video of the Year,’ and ‘Best Collaboration’ for “Where Ya At” with Future.
Drizzy is followed by Beyonce and Rihanna with 5 nominations each.
Beyoncé is nominated for five awards, ‘Best Female R&B/Pop Artist,’ ‘Video of the Year,’ and ‘Best Collaboration’ for “Feeling Myself” with Nicki Minaj.
Rihanna is up for five awards too including ‘Best Female R&B/Pop Artist,’ ‘Video of the Year,’ and ‘Best Collaboration,’ for “Work” featuring Drake.
Chris Brown, newcomer Bryson Tiller and Future are up for four awards each.
Another highlight of the event will be the Prince Tribute.
And it’ll definitely be a tribute worth waiting for especially after BET threw shade at Madonna’s efforts at the Billboard Music Awards last month. BET’s special to the late musical icon will feature Janelle Monáe, The Roots, D’Angelo and Sheila E.
