Rapsody became the first woman to win for lyricist of the year.
Megan Thee Stallion was the top winner at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards, which were presented Wednesday (Oct. 27). She won three awards, including hip hop artist of the year. She’s the second woman to win in that marquee category in the past three years, following Cardi B. Nicki Minaj was the first woman to win the category in 2011.
Megan’s collab with Beyoncé, “Savage” (Remix), which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, won best collaboration. It’s the first all-female collab to win in that category. Beyoncé won a second award for her featured verse on that smash, bringing her career total to five BET Hip Hop Awards.
Megan and Bey weren’t the only women to win big this year. Rapsody became the first woman to win for lyricist of the year. Teyana “Spike Tee” Taylor became the second woman in three years to win best video director of the year. Taylor follows Karena Evans.
