The 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards featured a stellar line-up of performances Saturday night (Sept. 28) in Atlanta.

Among the hip-hoppers who graced the stage included Rick Ross, French Montana, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Bone, Thugs-N-Harmony and others.

Meek Mill was the night’s first performer. The Philly spitfire performed the ‘Dreams and Nightmare (Intro)’ from his debut album of the same name. He then followed that with the fan-favorite track, ‘Levels.’

Elsewhere, Deuce performed ‘Fork’ and ‘Used 2′ from his second album, ‘B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time,’ before bringing out Mannie Fresh and Juvenile for a rendition of ‘Back That Thang Up.’

Three of the biggest heavyweights in rap — Future, DJ Khaled and Rozay — formed like voltron onstage for a performance of ‘Honest,’ ‘I Wanna Be with You’ and ‘No Games,’ respectively.

Kendrick Lamar, who reportedly destroyed the Cypher portion of the BET Hip-Hop Awards, rapped ‘Money Tree’ with Jay Rock, which was then followed with ‘Collard Green’ his duet with ScHoolboy Q.

Meanwhile, a reunited Bone Thugs-N-Harmony performed ‘Thuggish Ruggish Bone,’ ‘First of the Month’ and ‘Crossroads.’

The highlight of the night went to French Montana, who brought out Ross, Snoop Dogg and Diddy for an all-star posse rendition of ‘Ain’t Worried About Nothin’ (Remix).’

During Montana’s performance, the Bronx rapper put a golden crown on Diddy’s head as a reminder to Lamar, who was watching from the audience, that the rap mogul is the king of New York. The Compton rhymer reportedly smiled and applauded the duo’s display of hometown pride.

All of the hot performances at the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards will air Oct. 15 at 8PM ET.
