If you’re a hip-hop fan, you probably tuned in to watch the 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards last night.
The DJ Khaled-hosted award show featured sets by Gucci Mane, who performed his Mike WiLL Made-It produced single “First Day Out Da Feds,” and was eventually joined by Travi$ Scott to perform “Last Time.” Travi$ also performed his Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight single “Pick Up The Phone” featuring Migos member Quavo.
Desiigner, Dae Dae, Lil Yachty, D.R.A.M., Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, Young M.A, and even DJ Khaled also hit the hip-hop awards stage. Artists like Big K.R.I.T. and T.I. took a more serious approach to their performances this year by selecting songs addressing police brutality and social injustice.
