AceShowbiz - The 6th annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, which was taped in early October, was finally broadcast on Tuesday night, October 11. During the airing, it's revealed that %cChris Brown%, %cLil Wayne% and %cNicki Minaj% were some of the lucky artists who collected multiple trophies.
Breezy's collaboration with Weezy and %cBusta Rhymes% in song called "Look at Me Now" won Best Hip-Hop Video, Reese's Perfect Combo Award, and Verizon People's Champ Award. Additionally, the verses rapped by Busta in the track were named Sweet 16: Best Featured Verse.
Beside helping Breezy win those awards, Weezy also got two coveted prizes for his own. The "6 Foot 7 Foot" rapper grabbed Best Live Performer and Lyricist of the Year. He beat Busta, %cCee-Lo% Green, %cJay-Z% and %cKanye West% in the former, and pushed aside Jigga, Kanye, %cRick Ross% and Minaj in the latter.
Though losing Lyricist of the Year from Weezy, Minaj still managed to receive double gongs. The %cYoung Money% femcee brought home MVP of the Year and Made-You-Look Award. She took revenge by beating Weezy in both categories. She additionally won over Rozay, Kanye, Jiggaman and %cWiz Khalifa%.
Giving up his hope to bring home Made-You-Look Award, Khalifa was still lucky enough to earn two kudos. The rapper, who is vying for New Artist of the Year at 2011 American Music Awards, walked home as a Rookie of the Year, and scored Track of the Year through his claim-fame single "Black and Yellow".
Kanye and Jigga didn't walk home empty-handed as well. Although repeatedly sidelined, %cThe Throne% still snatched one coveted prize each. Kanye won CD of the Year, thanks to "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". Meanwhile, the husband of %cBeyonce Knowles% took Hustler of the Year title.
