Jay-Z and Kanye West are two of the biggest names in the rap game right now. After combining their talents, they have become the biggest group too!
For the first award of the night, The Throne took home the trophy for "Best Group" at the 2012 BET Awards. The veteran performers beat out newcomers Mindless Behavior, Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group, Diddy Dirty Money and Bad Meets Evil.
That's a lot of tough competition on their heels, so Jay-Z and Kanye definitely need to Watch The Throne next year!
News from Memphis moments ago was that Rick Ross was rushed to the hospital when his plane touched down in the city after suffering from a seizure. We didn't know much, but we heard that he was unconscious when the paramedics arrived on the scene.
Luckily, some of the guys in his crew were able to contact Ross' fans via Twitter to confirm that Rick is in good shape.
Wale, a member of Ross' Maybach Music Group, posted:
We don't think this is a fight you want to start, Elisabeth.
The curious death of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail cell is just the latest example of proposed police brutality in America, but it seems as though some people are trying to place blame on the victim. Yet again.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is known for her outrageous Conservative viewpoints, but on FOX & Friends this week, the anchor questioned whether or not Sandra deserved to be arrested for potentially using a cigarette as a weapon against the officer.
If you're unfamiliar with the case, 28-year-old Sandra was arrested by 30-year-old trooper Brian Encinia in Waller County, TX on July 10 after he stopped her for switching lanes without a signal and subsequently assaulting him -- even though eyewitnesses say Brian was actually the one who kicked Sandra to the ground.
Three days later, Sandra was found dead in her cell, with police claiming she committed suicide by hanging, which was supported by the medical examiner.
However, the FBI is now looking into the incident as a possible murder, because Sandra's mugshot seems to be questionable and the motion-censored camera outside her cell never activated until after police found her body.
Many Americans are protesting the suicide ruling saying that Sandra was killed because of her race, and Elisabeth playing devil's advocate just comes off as rude.
Check out her rather controversial suggested timeline of what happened to Sandra Bland (below).
