Chance the Rapper honored for humanitarian work in Chicago

Chance the Rapper honored for humanitarian work in Chicago

New Edition was recognized with a lifetime achievement award.

The pop star paused his performance Sunday to fake-chastise the crowd for not being excited enough and playing around on Instagram during his performance at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The "B" in BET Awards could stand for Beyonce or Bruno Mars.

Presenters include Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Trevor Noah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Issa Rae and Yara Shahidi.

In addition to taking home the award for Best New Artist during the 2017 BET Awards, which aired Sunday, the rapper and activist became the youngest person to receive its Humanitarian Award. But he said, "My God doesn't make mistakes".

He went on to criticize the Chicago public school system and the lack of convictions in police shooting cases before vowing to spend more time with loved ones. But he ended by saying he was a good man, and he wanted to be better.

Other winners on the night included Kendrick Lamarr, who was named best male hip-hop artist, and Bruno Mars, who got best male R&B/pop artist. Mars also won best male R&B/pop artist and kicked off the show with a fun and funky performance of the song, "Perm". Queen Bey was the big victor with five, also taking home album of the year for "Lemonade", best female R&B/pop artist and video director of the year for "Sorry".

"We are so incredibly proud of you, Chance", Michelle said, on behalf of herself and husband Barack Obama. Because of you, countless young people will grow up believing in themselves, fulfilling their God given potential, and then reaching back and lifting up other people along the way.

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick Resigns After Investor Demands
Uber has also lost executives from its product, engineering, mapping, communications, business, finance and self-driving units. His own issues came to a head in March after a video surfaced showing him in an angry pay row with an Uber driver.

In March, Ma released the hostile diss track "Shether", which earned praised from critics and rap fans. It was handsome, and exactly why BET CEO Debra Lee introduced Obama by calling her "our forever First Lady".

"Prodigy inspired my first mix tape, Y.H.N.I.C.", Lamar said. There were four hours of wonderful performances, touching reunions and tributes and many speeches that had powerful messages and carried a lot of meaning. It started with the child actors from the movie singing "Candy Girl", later followed by the older actors for some of the band's hits apart from the group, including Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison" and Ralph Tresvant's "Sensitivity". She reportedly had her twins earlier this month, but she hasn't publicly commented on it.

Numerous most prominent names in music came together in Los Angeles on Sunday for a night full of explosive performances, political and social commentary, and some next level promotion by Jamie Foxx (Baby Driver is out Friday if viewers somehow missed the many mentions he made).

"This has been a journey of love, of celebrating our culture, honoring the past, and approaching the present and future with hope and resolve", Beyonce said in the letter.

Mars, Migos and Solange are nominated for video of the year along with Beyonce and Big Sean.

"My armpits are sweating so much right now", Solange said.

Solange had a moment of silence for "the lives of our brothers and sisters that we have lost due to brutality and violence", during a presentation to honor activist Tamika Mallory. Ma took the opportunity to play on their feud in her acceptance speech by reciting some lyrics from her song "Spaghetti'".

Let's recap Chance the Rapper's evening: He won Best New Artist, performed DJ Khaled's No. 1 hit "I'm the One", received a special shout out from Kendrick Lamar, and was introduced - via a heartfelt message - from his "friend" Michelle Obama.
