No flex zone. Yo Gotti rounds up Lil Wayne and Ludacris for the remix to “Errrbody.” Weezy reminds us that he doesn’t have an Instagram account before Luda calls out his stuntin’ peers (“Everyday ya’ll suck, need a pat on the back till ya’ll burp”) and skirt-wearing rappers.

“I think this is a classic Lil Wayne verse,” the Memphis MC told Noisey, adding, “Luda’s one of the artists I respect that I’d never worked with on a record. Plus, he’s also one of the artists that I never heard a wack verse from.”

Following video tributes from Usher, Lil Jon, and Tom Cruise, Luda thanked his mother, girlfriend Eudoxie, and his team.

The star-studded event also celebrated the songwriters, producers, and publishers of the most-performed R&B/hip-hop songs of the previous year, with performances from TeeFlii (“24 Hours”) and Tamar Braxton (“Love and War”).

Zendaya won the BMI Social Star Award and Detail, J-Roc, and DJ Mustard were honored as Producers of the Year. The West Coast hitmaker brought out YG to perform “My Hitta” and “Who Do You Love.”

Chris Brown was also in the house and received a Special Citation of Achievement recognizing over 1 million broadcast performances of his hit “Forever.”

“I just appreciate all the singers and the songwriters who helped me get to this point making all this great music,” said Breezy. “I didn’t do it by myself. The fans really jumpstarted it.”

Future accepted multiple awards including one for his ex Ciara’s “Body Party,” which he co-wrote and produced.
