The BET Hip Hop Awards commemorated the genre’s 50th anniversary with a Tuesday-televised event hosted by Fat Joe at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Center.

“This year’s BET Hip Hop Awards will mark the culmination of our yearlong celebration of hip-hop’s storied creation and the art form’s sonic and cultural expansion,” said Connie Orlando, the network’s executive vice president of specials, music programming, and music strategy.

“We are honoured by this year’s roster of nominees as they continue to carry the creativity and diversity of hip-hop into the future. We congratulate each nominee on their accomplishments as they take hip-hop artistry to new heights.”

Rapper 21 Savage and Cardi B led this year’s nominations with 12 each, followed by Drake, who earned 9 nods.

Kendrick Lamar was the night’s big winner, with four wins, sweeping all his categories.

Cardi went home winless, while a bunch of artists won two: Drake and 21 Savage, Lil Durk and J. Cole, Metro Boomin, and Lil Uzi Vert.
