Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch among winners at 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards

Travis Scott, Beyoncé, Stormzy and more also picked up awards

The 15th annual Black Entertainment Television (BET) Hip Hop Awards took place last night (October 27), with Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch and Travis Scott among the artists who took home gongs.

Last night’s ceremony followed on from June’s BET Awards, which recognised the contributions of African-Americans across the entertainment and sports industries.

Like the BET Awards, the BET Hip Hop Awards were held virtually this year in keeping with coronavirus-imposed restrictions. Karlous Miller, DC Young Fly and Chico Bean hosted proceedings, while 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign and Big Sean were among those performing.
