Snoop Dogg Praises Hip Hop "Unity" At BET Hip Hop Awards

We finally got to see the BET Hip Hop Awards, which was recorded in September, but aired last night. 

The Big Moment of the night was Snoop Dogg receiving the "I Am Hip Hop" award, in which he was presented the award by Kendrick Lamar, who sang his praises. Snoop shared, according to Billboard, this sentiment:

"Y'all are misunderstood. Keep pushing, stay original. Hip-hop is taking you many places. You have to live with who you are. I'm loving how y'all are unifying people."
