2 Chainz must have been on an emotional high during his 2013 BET Awards performance: just a few weeks ago the rapped escaped gunshots during an attempted robbery in San Francisco, CA.
The rapper also revealed, during the red carpet pre show, that his father passed away just a year to the date of the BET show. 2 Chainz said after the tumultuous year he's had, he was just happy to be able to attend the show and have a good time.
The rapper was accompanied by a slew of beautiful models onstage during his performance for his new single Feds Watching off his upcoming album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time.
Rappers ASAP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar also joined 2 Chainz's set to perform their hit single F****n' Problems. ASAP and Lamar took home awards for Best Collaboration and Best New Artist, respectively.
In 2012, 2 Chainz won two BET Hip Hop Awards in the People's Champ and Rookie of the Year categories. He also took home the Sweet 16: Best Featured Verse for his lyrics on the Good Music collaboration Mercy. The Atlanta rapper was also nominated for three Grammy awards earlier this year.
