On Tuesday, January 11 the hip-hop magazine XXL tweeted out an announcement for the magazine’s 2022 awards. The awards are given for best male and female rapper, artist, album, song, best new artist, producer, performer, video, and hip-hop’s humanitarian of the year, along with The People’s Champ. All are fan-voted and fans were able to cast 1 vote per hour. Many fans rushed to vote for their favorite celebrities’ success. Many fans were getting into brawls over Twitter over who could win. The winners are said to be announced on January 24, 2022.

Dylan Rickards, a huge hip-hop fan, stated, “I really wish they’d drop the winners now. But I feel like Nicki will win all the awards she’s nominated in since she wins almost every fan-voted award.”

Daniel Rickards also gave his thoughts, stating, “They really should say the winners, especially since you can’t vote anymore. I really hope the people who win genuinely deserve it though, I know a lot of rappers can just pass as ‘good’ even though the beat carries the whole song.”

XXL Magazine is an American hip-hop magazine, so it does mean a lot to major hip-hop fans. Some are even claiming they have the top nine results already for the People’s Champ Award, saying that Nicki Minaj and NBA Youngboy both have 7.4%, Lil Baby with 7.3%, Doja Cat has 7.2%, Megan Thee Stallion at 6.6%, Playboi Carti with 5.9%, Kanye West at 5.2%, and Cardi B has 5.1%. People are still on the edge of their seats to hear the final results!
