DJ AM, T.I. win at BET Hip-Hop Awards - Today's News: Our Take |

DJ AM, T.I. win at BET Hip-Hop Awards - Today's News: Our Take "The Associated Press reported that T.I.'s fiancée, Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle, accepted his awards at the ceremony in Atlanta and read a letter from him. He began serving a yearlong sentence in late May on a federal weapons conviction.

Cottle quoted the rapper as writing: 'My road to redemption is almost over. ... Thanks for the support.'

Jay-Z and Drake also were winners, as was Ice Cube, who received the 'I Am Hip-Hop' icon award.
Ice Cube helped launch the gangsta rap genre with the group NWA, and he starred in 'Barbershop' and 'Friday,' which he also co-wrote.

'When you get recognized by your peers for a life of work, you got to be humbled,' he said. 'I'm honored by this. I have 20 more years of work left in me. I hope (BET) is ready to give out two of these awards.'

Rapper Busta Rhymes presented the award for DJ AM, who died of an accidental drug overdose in August."
