BET Awards 2019: Nipsey Hussle Honored by YG, John Legend, DJ Khaled

The victor of BET's Best Male Hip Hop Artist has been decided.

The 2019 BET Awards took place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles June 23 at 8PM ET. Other rappers up for the award included hip-hop heavyweights like 21 Savage, Drake, J. Cole, Meek Mill and Travis Scott. Decked out in all white, DJ Khaled capped things off with a rousing performance of his Father of Asahd single "Higher" featuring John Legend.

Marsha Ambrosius kicked off the musical tribute with her and Nipsey's Victory Lap collaboration "Real Big" as Nipsey's sister sang along in the audience. Nipsey, who left behind a legacy of philanthropy and the idea of self-sufficiency in the Black community as well as the music industry, was also awarded BET's Humanitarian Award.

"There will never be another Nipsey Hussle", Tip said.

Why Yankees made a decision to give struggling Aaron Hicks a day off
DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 89 hits and 48 RBI while Gleyber Torres and Luke Voit have combined for 146 hits and 89 RBI. The already potent Yankees lineup will get a massive boost with the return of Aaron Judge .

One of the most polarizing-and most fun-hits of 2019 to date is "Old Town Road" by teenage rapper Lil Nas X. The song has drawn criticism (as well as plenty of adoration) from the country world, but one thing that is undeniable: Billy Ray Cyrus, who joined for a version of the infectious song, makes a ideal combo with the rapper.

"Rihanna watching Lizzo is a MOOD", one fan commented alongside a GIF of the special moment.

"Long live Nipsey Hussle".
