Cardi B took home four awards at this year's BET Hip Hop Awards.

(CNN) — Cardi B was the big winner at this year's BET Hip Hop Awards.

The reality star-turned-rapper took home four awards, including MVP of the Year and the Made-You-Look Award for best hip hop style.

It was also a good night for The Carters, better known as rapper Jay-Z and his wife, pop star Beyoncé. They took home awards for album of the year and best collaboration, duo or group.

Rapper Lil Wayne received the "I Am Hip Hop" award. And rapper XXXTentacion, who was gunned down in June in an apparent robbery, won a posthumous award for Best New Hip Hop Artist.

Hosted by comedian DeRay Davis, the awards show was held earlier this month at the Fillmore Miami Beach in Florida but not broadcast until Tuesday night.
