"Culture's Biggest Night" proclaimed Kendrick Lamar its monarch Tuesday night at Atlanta's Cobb Theater.

King Kendrick took home six awards — including artist and album of the year (“Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers) — to rule the night at the 17th annual edition of the BET Hip Hop Awards.

Additionally, Lamar won lyricist of the year and best live performer for his work as a solo artist. He shared two other awards. With his cousin, and frequent collaborator Baby Keem, he took home best hip-hop video honors for "Family Ties." Along with Dave Free, Lamar was named video director of the year.

It was an impressive haul, especially considering the "N95" rapper had nine nominations. Drake, who led all nominees with 14 coming into the show, took home just three.
