by | 25 June 2008

US hip hop star Kanye West has picked up two Black Entertainment TV (BET) awards.

West won best male hip-hop artist and best collaboration for his song Good Life, with T-Pain.

Best group went to UGK, who also picked up video of the year for their song International Player's Anthem (I Choose You) featuring Outkast.

Other winners at the Los Angeles ceremony included Missy Elliott for best female hip-hop artist, with Alicia Keys and Chris Brown winning the respective R&B categories.

Lil Wayne won the best new rap artist award voted by viewers and claimed he was "blessed" to be in the presence of fellow rapper T-Pain.

Al Green was handed a lifetime achievement award and Quincy Jones was awarded the humanitarian award.

Hip hop artist Sean Diddy Combs also urged attendees at the ceremony to vote for Democrat candidate Barack Obama in the upcoming presidential election.

"If we all register and vote, we will have the first black president in the history of America," he said.
