The BET Hip-Hop Awards went down in Atlanta this past weekend, bringing out rappers, video vixens, industry people and more. For those who couldn't actually attend the event, Twitter was full of live tweets documenting what went down, from the BET cyphers to the red carpet.

HotNewHipHop was on the scene, and we'll be bringing you some exclusive red carpet footage soon enough. For now, take a look at the night through photos from the red carpet (to be accurate, it was a green carpet, as it was sponsored by Sprite) and photos from the event itself.

The BET Hip-Hop Awards will air on October 15th.
