On Tuesday night during the BET Hip-Hop Awards, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus took home the award for Best Collaboration, Duo, or Group for their “Old Town Road (Remix).” They competed against 21 Savage and J. Cole, Cardi B and Bruno Mars, Travis Scott and Drake, Lil Baby and Gunna, and DJ Khaled, Nipsey Hussle, and John Legend.
Following after, Billy Ray Cyrus used his Twitter fingers to thank the fans for the continuous support. Surprisingly enough, Cyrus also dedicated his award to Nipsey Hussle. The tweet reads,
“Thank you @BET @HipHopAwards for Best Collab win. You kept #OTR at No. 1 for 19 weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home & world. Dedicating this win to Mr. @NipseyHussle – a legend gone way too soon.” Equally important, Hussle also won the award for MVP of the Year. And figuratively, he took it back to the pearly gates.
Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” won Single of the Year as well.
