The BET Hip Hop Awards will air on the network on September 29th. The show takes place at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center. This year, they’ll be honoring a veteran who is widely known in the hip hop community as one of the dopest lyricists of all time – Rakim!

Rakim will be receiving the 2012 I Am Hip Hop Icon Award. Winners in year’s past include LL Cool J, Salt N Pepa, Ice Cube, Russell Simmons, KRS-One and Grandmaster flash.

In case you lost track of time, his joint with Eric B. “Paid In Full” came out in 1987… feel old yet?
