The 27-year-old rapper stole the show at the event in Atlanta, Georgia - which took place last month but only aired on TV last night (15.10.14), picking up Best Hip Hop Video for 'Worst Behavior', Best Live Performer, People's Champ Award and Album of the Year for 'Nothing Was The Same'.

Rapper DJ Mustard - real name Dijon McFarlane - also picked up three awards for MVP of the Year, Producer of the Year and DJ of the Year, while Kendrick Lamar and YG's collaboration with Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan picked up two accolades each.

The 'Never Catch Me' singer bagged Lyricist of the Year and Best Feature Verse for 'Control', while the trio picked up the gong for Best Collaboration, Duo or Group and Track of the Year for 'My N***a'.

Other winners on the night included Wiz Khalifa, who won Best Mixtape for '28 Grams', Iggy Azalea took home the Who Blew Up Award, Nicki Minaj bagged the Made You Look Award and Dr Dre was crowned Hustler of the Year.
