The foundation connects with 1500 to 2000 girls 13 and older, covering topics of sex, teen pregnancy, drugs, and alcoholism. The philanthropist speaks on how to structure goals as a young teen to get pass the peer pressures. Her list of influence and inspiration goes on and on.

    The recent AEW wrestler, was on hand at the Atlanta-based ceremony to accept the I Am Hip-Hop Honor. The award honors trailblazers whose careers have set the blueprint of what it means to be the true embodiment of Hip-Hop.

    DJ Drama narrated a video tribute to “The Baddest B****,” featuring heartfelt messages and well-wishes from fellow Hip Hop heavyweights like Trick Daddy, Missy Elliott, and Killer Mike, and stars from rap’s new wave Latto and City Girls.

    Her friend and collaborator Trick Daddy along fellow rap queen Remy Ma presented Trina’s BET Hip-Hop award.

    The 47-year-old queen held back tears of gratitude while giving her acceptance speech.

    “First and foremost, God made this possible,” the rap legend said, giving special recognition to her “beautiful mom,” Vernessa Tylor, who passed away in 2019.

    “I just want to thank BET for continuing to be a platform that heightens our culture.” The artist continued, “and for giving me my flowers while I am here to smell them,” she continued. “I am speechless right now.” She continued, “I am humbled yet honored to accept the ‘I Am Hip Hop Award.’

    “Twenty-four years…who would’ve thought that I would be standing here.” The One Minute Man artist continued, “and able to say this in my own reign and my own lane?”

    Continuing to thank her fans, who she lovingly calls her “Rockstars,” Trina said “I am winning this award with you guys that continue to support me, applaud, motivate, and inspire me to continue to hold on to my reign.”

    Trina thanked all the other women both in front of and behind the mic that have collaborated with and helped her over the decades. But she also didn’t forget to take a moment to recognize another burgeoning Southern Rap heavyweight, GloRilla. GloRilla won the Best Breakthrough Artist award and performing her hits, “F.N.F” and “Tomorrow 2.”

    “This is my celebration, but it is yours too,” Trina said lovingly to the Memphis-bred rapper.  “I am still and will always be the original baddest chick from the 305.”
