The 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards were taped on Sept. 29, but the show debuted tonight (Oct. 9), and with a bang! Wiz Khalifa hit the stage performing his summer anthem 'Work Hard Play Hard' before a slew of winners were announced.

Although not present, Kanye West (and his G.O.O.D. music crew) snagged the first trophy of the evening for the Perfect Combo Award, sponsored by Reece's. And the coveted Rookie of the Year award went to 2 Chainz, who has proven himself this year with his hits 'No Lie' and 'Birthday Song' featuring Kanye.
