J. Lo let go a simple tweet with an excerpt from Lupita's acceptance speech, "No matter where you're from, your dreams are valid."

Pusha T took to his Instagram account to post about his frustration concerning Pharrell's loss for Best Original Song (with "Happy", of course). Pusha posted plenty of angry faced emoticons along with "PHARRELL WAS ROBBED." He captioned the image, "That is all... @pharrell #King4Rell #Love" Do you agree?
Rick Ross took the time to congratulate Lupita on her win via Twitter, with the message "True beauty! Congrats..."

Diddy got in on congratulating Lupita as well, taking to Instagram and posting an image of her with the Oscar held high (the same image used by Game, actually), the music mogul wrote, "God is Great! Dreams do come true! BELIEVE AND WORK HARD! #NoExcuses GO!!!!!!"
Kerry Washington kept us informed throughout the Oscars, Instagramming about Ellen DeGeneres supplying gluten free pizza in the green room with a photo of her mid-bite, not to mention a backstage flick of her posing with Jamie Foxx. "Yes! @TheEllenShow 😃 There IS gluten-free pizza!!!!#OSCARS #greenroom," she wrote. She also tweeted about the wins of "12 Years Of A Slave."

Of course, Pharrell Williams kept us up to date on his Oscars adventures. The singer performed his single "Happy" live during the event, and tweeted about what went down. He tweeted a photo of himself getting his hair cut pre-Oscars, thanked everyone for their support on his behalf, and also congratulated Lupita. See some his tweets below, as well as Vine clip from his performance.
Tonight was amazing. Thank you to everyone who participated in my journey to the #Oscars. Dream come true. 🙏j— Pharrell Williams (@Pharrell) March 3, 2014
Apart from posing for a photo with Kerry Washington,Jamie Foxx tweeted some flicks of his own. He took his daughter Corrine Foxx as his date to the Oscars, and suited up in a bow tie for it. Check out the photos he posted from the red carpet, as well as his daughter and friends chowing down on pizza mid-event in the gallery above.
Congrats to my brother @Pharrell for his nomination and #1 for HAPPY on the same night! We've been doing this too long, man! It's your time!— Justin Timberlake (@jtimberlake) March 2, 2014
Well, Ellen DeGeneres isn't strictly hip-hop but we had to include her epic group selfie/richest selfie ever taken. The Oscar pic went on to receive over 2 million retweets, making it the most retweeted thing ever. The photo features Brad Pitt, Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep and others. Take a look in the gallery above.
G.O.O.D. Music'sJohn Legend and wifey Chrissy Teigen were in attendance last night, and while Legend wasn't too big on tweeting, Teigen kept us entertained. "Everyone thinks john is pharrell," she tweeted. "I love meeting celebrities and calling them by nicknames like HEYYYYY SAM (uel jackson) HEYYYYYY tobe (y maguire) HEYYYYYY LEO (nardo)", she tweeted. She later added, "So close. To Angelina. So close. So close. Body shitting. Down." Chrissy was definitely having fun with all her tweeting. See photos of the couple above, and read some of her tweets below, which includes a look at Ellen's group selfie from the back.

Kelly Rowland tweeted similarly to Jennifer Lopez, quoting Lupita's acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress. She was also in attendance at Elton John's Oscar party, and Instagrammed all the flashy jewelry worn by herself and friends, as well as an image of her sexy black backless dress. "Had a lovely time at Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party! Congrats to all the winners!," she captioned.

Ace Hood was yet another rapper who sent out congrats to Lupita following her win.
Swizz Beatz partook in some of the Oscar madness last night, although we're not exactly sure where he went, he did post a photo of himself with Tom Ford (with the appropriate caption "I don't Pop Molly I Rock!!!!!!!!!"). He also Instagrammed an image of his return home, posing beside a private jet he wrote, "I got home at 5am from Oscar madness👀 but I have a Big Announcement to make so I'm up on my grind :) as you can see I'm thinking Global." The producer also congratulated Lupita and every other Oscar winner.

Busta Rhymes sent out a tweet about Lupita during the Oscars, although he kept it extremely minimal.
A quick recap of what hip-hop artists had to say about last night's Oscars.
The 86th annual Oscars went down last night in Los Angeles, as happens every year, the brightest and biggest stars were out attending the event and celebrating afterwards at various different parties. While there probably wasn't an excess of rappers in attendance, they nonetheless seemed to have the TV locked on the annual awards show, and many were chiming in with their opinion throughout the night.
There were many memorable moments during the night, including Lupita Nyong'o's win for Best Supporting Actress with her role in "12 Years A Slave" (not to mention the film taking home Best Picture), as well as Ellen DeGeneres epic selfie (which was retweeted more than 2 million times).
We've decided to compile some of those memorable moments here. If you missed the Oscars, or you're just looking for a simple recap, or you'd like to know what hip-hop artists had to say about them, scroll through the galleries above.
Let us know if you were watching last night.
