The BET Hip Hop Awards 2016 was hosted by DJ Khaled at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta. The award show was filmed last month but it was broadcasted to the world last night.

A lot went down during the awards show from ecstatic performances by Desiigner, T.I, Big K.R.I.T, Travis Scott and many more artists. The show also featured cyphers from the likes of Jidenna, Lil Wayne, Chocolate Droppa (Kevin’s hart’s alter ego) and a lot more. Numerous artists also walked away with awards. Clearly it was a night filled with positive vibes (which a major key) as Snoop Dogg aka Snoop O double G was paid a tribute.
