The event’s highlight was the battle between producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, who went back-and-forth with hits they’ve produced for others — from Jay-Z’s “Jigga My…” and DMX’s “Ruff Ryders Anthem” to Missy Elliott’s “Work It” and Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”.

Lamar performed his well-known hits such as “Humble” and “Don’t Kill My Vibe”; he was joined onstage by label mate Jay Rock. Meek Mill, who was released from prison in April, also performed Sunday.
