The most recent edition of the annual BET Hip-Hop Awards was less trophies-and-speeches and more WWE Monday Night Raw.

R. Kelly FacebookIf R. Kelly pulled a WIlly Wonka and opened his Chocolate Factory to the public, we doubt we'd find Oompa Loompas churning out R&B hits. After all, the 2003 record was clearly about baby-making, not candy-making.
