BET Hip Hop Awards Go On, Despite TI's Arrest

Saturday night's BET Hip Hop Awards got off to a dramatic start when TI was arrested only hours before he was supposed to perform on stage. He was nabbed by the feds blocks away from the awards where he was supposedly picking up illegal machine guns and silencers he had been brokering a deal to purchase through his bodyguards. Yikes. Despite the trouble, TI, who was nominated for nine awards, picked up two statues. Also going home with two (and considering he could show, he actually was there to accept) was Mr. Kanye West. In nontypical fashion, after winning Best Hip Hop Video he tried to pass it off to UGK's "International Players," featuring OutKast. Um, suuuure you actually want to give that award to someone else, Kanye. Totally, though I do appreciate his sense of humor.
