Rapper Snoop Dogg was honored at the taping of the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards last night.

The veteran rapper was handed the award by Kendrick Lamar in front of a packed crowd at the  Cobb Energy Performing Centre.

“He mastered the game through tests and challenges that earned him the respect of a college professor, except his game came from the streets,” Lamar said. “He put (me) on game, so I would avoid the same pitfalls … Snoop Dogg was the God, and continues to be so.”

Receiving the award, Snoop gave advice to upcoming rappers, advising them to keep pushing.

“To all the young rappers in the game, a lot of people don’t understand you. Y’all are misunderstood,” he said. “I was misunderstood at the beginning. So you got to keep pushing, be original and diverse. Hip-hop was created many years ago and it’s taken people so many places. You have to be who you are.”
