The BET Hip Hop Awards are always a special date in the calendar when it rolls around every year, and 2021 was no different.

Last night proved to be an evening to remember for Tyler, the Creator who received the coveted ‘Album of the Year’ gong for June’s Call Me If You Get Lost. Meanwhile, the rapper also took home the ‘Live Performer’ of the year prize.

Elsewhere, Lil Baby had reason to celebrate after he beat off stiff competition in the form of Cardi B, Drake, J. Cole, Megan Thee Stallion, and Tyler, the Creator to win ‘Artist of the Year’.

Britain’s Little Simz also won the ‘Best International Flow’ prize following the release of her stellar new Album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert. To see the full list of winners from the ceremony, look below.
