For a man who was nominated for seventeen BET Hip Hop Awards, Kanye sure cleaned up for the most awards won with six awards at the show. Though Kanye hasn’t released a solo work since 2010 but that hasn’t stopped the music man for creating and collaborating with other talented hip hop artists like Jay-Z, 2 Chainz, and Big Sean for records like Watch The Throne and Cruel Summer. Other notable winners from the night include Kendrick Lamar who won the award for Lyricist of the Year and Jay-Z was proclaimed Hustler of The Year.
