The 2017 BET Awards brought out music’s finest and brightest stars at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday night (June 25). Among the celebrities in the building, hip-hop's biggest stars made a strong presence this year with guest appearances from the likes of Migos, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky, DJ Khaled and others. Before the start of the awards, rap's elite took to the red carpet and flexed in their designer-wear and diamonds for the flashing cameras, and XXL is here to highlight just a few of those moments.

With plenty of hip-hop moments for fans to remember, rap group Migos took the stage to perform their hit "Bad and Boujee" in front of the enormous crowd, while Bronx rapper French Montana performed the summer anthem "Unforgettable" alongside Rae Sremmurd's, Swae Lee. Former XXL Freshman Chance The Rapper was honored for giving back to the youth with his school program, and Kendrick Lamar and Remy Ma were on hand to receive Best Male and Female Hip-Hop Artist of the year.
