Jay-Z and Kanye West have shared two prizes at this year's BET Awards in Los Angeles.
The pair won critical acclaim for their collaboration Watch The Throne and they were named as the best group, while Otis was voted as video of the year.
Jay-Z also got the biggest laugh of the evening when he interrupted Kanye during his acceptance speech in reference to West's interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Meanwhile, Chris Brown picked up the best male R&B artist gong for the second year in a row and Nicki Minaj triumphed in the female hip hop category.
Jay-Z's wife Beyone won the female R&B artist and took the opportunity to thank other women in the genre.
"I want to dedicate this to Whitney Houston, my angel, I hope you all enjoy the show, God bless you," she said upon accepting the award.
