The 10 BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 Outfits You Have to See
At las night’s BET Hip Hop Awards, awards were dished out to Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B reminded us why everyone is a Cardi B fan right now, and Eminem rapped about Donald Trump for five minutes (spoiler alert: he didn’t have some nice things to say). But no matter where you looked last night, one thing was crystal clear: the performers and nominees came dressed for the occasion. The hip-hop industry is home to
some of the most stylish men in the world who actually take risks with their wardrobes instead of playing it safe. From rising stars like Lil Yacthy and Playboi Carti to legends like Maxwell, high-octane style swerves were on full display, as were some of the hottest brands right now (Gucci and Raf Simons got some serious shine). Check out the ten most noteworthy outfits from the red carpet.
Not the most coordinated outfit from the Migos we’ve ever seen, but fewer men out there are willing to try new things—like say, ugly-as-hell-on-purpose Prada kicks on Takeoff and a striped silk shirt on Offset—than this dynamic trio.

A black on black tux is hard, but R&B legend Maxwell nailed the look, thanks to some contrast white piping and decidedly un-black tie shoes.
Since joining team Nautica last year, Lil Tachty has not shied away from some serous prep vibes, but this turtleneck x fur coat combo have a much more 70s soul feel—and we’re not mad at it.
Caleb was better dressed than most of the adults on the red carpet, and his stellar jacket is a friendly reminder than Stranger Things is back really, really soon.
Never one to shy away from some hype pieces, Playboi Carti wore the hottest sweater of the season and some Yeezy Season 5 boots.
