Megan Thee Stallion was the big winner at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards.

The “Hot Girl Summer” hitmaker took home three prizes on the night, including the revered Hip Hop Artist of the Year trophy.

The rap sensation’s “Savage” remix featuring Beyoncé was crowned Best Collaboration, while Megan also took home Hustler of the Year at the virtual ceremony on Tuesday night, October 27.

Roddy Ricch‘s acclaimed debut studio album, Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, was named Hip Hop Album of the Year, and he also bagged Song of the Year for “The Box.”

Elsewhere, Pop Smoke was posthumously honored with the Best New Hip Hop Artist gong, Travis Scott was named Best Live Performer and Best Duo or Group went to Chris Brown and Young Thug.

Snoop Dogg also made an appearance to present Master P with the I Am Hip Hop Award.

The live-stream featured show-stopping performances, including a powerful duet between Burna Boy and Coldplay’s Chris Martin of their track “Monsters You Made.”

Martin sang remotely as the rapper called for the end to police brutality with the emotional performance.

Burna Boy’s backing band donned #StopPoliceBrutality T-shirts as footage from protests aired on a giant screen.

They also raised their hands in solidarity and paid tribute to Nigerians who have lost their lives to SARS.
