There is a lot that we want to remember from the BET Hip-Hop Award, such as Kendrick‘s already-legendary verse during the cypher. They are also things we want to forget like Drake‘s win for “BEST Hip-Hop Video” with “Started From The Bottom”… The show is not a live show. The awards were filmed in Atlanta on September 28th and the full list of winners were announced in advance of the broadcast. The BET-Hip-Hop Award are not about the winners (though you can peep the full list below), it’s about the performances and the cyphers. That’s why we collected the creme of the crop for you. Check out our favorite videos of the night below:

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
