The night was big for rising female rapper Cardi B, who received major recognition throughout the evening. Cardi B was nominated for nine awards and took home five, including ‘Single of The Year’ and ‘Best New Hip-Hop Artist’. Kendrick Lamar and the host, DJ Khaled, were also multiple award winners on the night.

However, the highlight came when Eminem stole the show, hitting the scene with a jaw-dropping Cypher performance. That has actually been the talk of the internet all day, solely due to his no-holds-barred approach, calling out Donald Trump. Take a look at his freestyle performance below.
