Watch Future and Kendrick Lamar perform 'Mask Off' at BET Awards 2017
Plus Michelle Obama gives Chance the Rapper his humanitarian award, Migos vs. Chris Brown and a performance from SZA.
Future’s ‘Mask Off’ has taken on a new life as a remix with Kendrick Lamar and that’s exactly the version fans got at the BET Awards last night.
It wasn’t the only noteworthy pairing the night. Former First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a taped message for Chance The Rapper, who received the humanitarian award in the wake donating $1 million to Chicago public schools and raising even more.
Not everyone had a perfect night however. Migos, who picked up best group at the event, bookended the show with tense run-ins with Joe Budden and later Chris Brown. The first occurred in an interview with Budden and DJ Akademiks when the latter couldn’t hear an answer from rapper Takef.
After Akademiks asked several times for the rapper to repeat his answer, a frustrated Budden declares the interview done, drops his mic and walks f the interview. The Migos members then got up and had a brief stand-f with Budden as the cameras kept rolling.
Later in the night, the group had a run-in with Chris Brown which allegedly began when a member Brown’s entourage attacked Quavo. It’s certainly not the first time that’s happened.
SZA also ran into some technical problems during her performance but turned it around with two songs from her new album Ctrl. Watch below.
