Chris Brown Big Winner at BET Hip-Hop Awards

Look at him now.

BET's Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta tonight reminded all of us that despite Twitter wars and media frenzy, Chris Brown is in the music industry for a reason.

The young artist was awarded with three honors, including Best Hip-Hop Video for "Look at Me Now," but was not in attendance since he's currently on his F.A.M.E tour. However, he tweeted, "Thank you BET but most of all TeamBreezy"

The show, hosted by funnyman Mike Epps and emceed by Da Brat(good to know she's still around) opened up with a performance by—wait for it—T.I. No word on whether or not he arrived on a party bus.

Here's what else happened...

Between some pretty entertaining cypher freestyles, many notable names, like Wiz Khalifa, Heavy D and Tyrese, Rick Ross and the Maybach Music Group, Big Sean and even recently released DMX alongside Swizz Beatz, hit the stage and rocked the crowd.

Lupe Fiasco also took the mic and gave a very political (not supersurprising) performance with a mysteriously masked female vocalist who turned out to be Erykah Badu.

But let's get to the nitty-gritty and see who won what:
