Kendrick Lamar was the big winner at the BET Hip Hop Awards, taking home six trophies.

The rapper won artist of the year, coming out on top against the likes of Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion and again triumphed in the album of the year, lyricist of the year, best live performer, best video and video director categories.

Drake also was part of the big win having enjoyed success on the night as she was nominated for 14 awards, and winning three.

The awards are a spin-off of the main BET Awards, with the ceremony focusing on celebrating black entertainment.

50 Cent came out on top for hustler of the year, with Cardi B, DJ Khaled, Drake, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Megan Thee Stallion also nominated for the prize.

But, despite being nominated 10 times, Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, did not receive any awards.

At Tuesday’s ceremony, artists including Wu-Tang Clan, Lil’ Kim, Fat Joe and Remy Ma performed a tribute to Loud Records.

The label – which signed Wu-Tang Clan – is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Kodak Black also performed and during his set paid tribute to the late PnB Rock who was shot dead last month.

“Long live PnB, man,” he said. “You touched a real gangster. Put your hands up for PnB Rock. Let’s go.”

The musician, real name Rakim Hasheem Allen, was killed at a Los Angeles waffle house while dining with his girlfriend.
