NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2011 -- The sixth annual "BET HIP HOP AWARDS" brought the hip hop heat with the highly anticipated homecoming of Atlanta native T.I., who performed "F.A.M.E." alongside Young Jeezy and literally ignited the stage with their phenomenal performance. Hosted by comedian Mike Epps, the "BET HIP HOP AWARDS" was a night filled with brilliant collaborations. DMX stormed the stage with Ruff Ryders alum Swizz Beatz; G.O.O.D Music's newest stars Big Sean and Roscoe Dash did it bringing the audience to their feet with hit singles "I Do It" and "Marvin & Chardonnay." Maybach Music Group came through deep with Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill with special guest El Debarge supplying his legendary falsetto to "That Way." Wiz Khalifa gave an all energy performance of "Taylor Gang" and Heavy D made his return to the stage with Tyrese, a catalogue of hits and a crew of old school hip hop dancers.

Always on point, this year's BET hip hop cyphers were epic. An outstanding seven sets of cyphers from the best in the business - Eminem, Rick Ross, Ludacris, Joe Budden, Yelawolf, Estelle, Busta Rhymes, Ace Hood, Blind Fury, Mike Epps and many more. LL COOL J was honored as the 2011 recipient of the "I AM HIP-HOP" Icon Award, and received it with a poignant acceptance speech.
