The BET Hip-Hop Awards opened with a bang tonight, as a mink-draped Gucci Mane took the stage in Atlanta to lead things off with "First Day Out Tha Feds". Shortly after, Guwop was joined by Travis Scott for "Last Time" (now slated to appear on the forthcoming Woptober). Scott then took over center stage, and recruited Young Thug and Quavo for "Pick Up the Phone", complete with live Auto-Tune harmonizing some psychedelic post-production, and an actual phone booth.
It was a fitting start to a show that also included performances by Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, and T.I., plus a quick tribute to Shawty Lo, adding to the hometown vibe in the current center of the rap universe. Watch the clip above via BET.
