Hip-hop’s biggest crews gathered for the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards, which aired on Tuesday (Oct. 15) night. The event, hosted by the Cali O.G. Snoop Lion – a.k.a. Uncle Snoop — is an annual celebration of the biggest and brightest stars in the rap game today and also tips a hat to the rappers of the past who have paved the way.

The highlight of the show was of course the gritty black-and-white cyphers that featured underground acts such as Action Bronson and Rapsody, brought back Lil Kim, and the highly-anticipated TDE cypher in which Kendrick Lamar apparently took aim at his (former?) homie Drake. ‘The Real Husbands of Hollywood,’ featuring Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Nelly and other cast members, did their own cypher, bringing some levity to the otherwise dead serious spit sessions. Meek MillFutureRick Ross, and the vets Bone Thugs-N-Harmony hit the stage for performances. And MC Lyte was honored with the ‘I AM Hip Hop Award’ presented by Philly rap queen Eve.

Drake and Kendrick Lamar both were tied for five awards last night, when including their collaboration on A$AP Rocky‘s ‘Problems,’ which won the Reese’s Perfect Combo Award. Drizzy, who was absent from the show, won the Best Hip Hop Video award for ‘Started From the Bottom.’ Kendrick Lamar took Album of the Year for his critically-acclaimed opus ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city.’ Overall the show gave us a some memorable moments.
