One of music’s biggest nights went down at LA’s forum for the 2017 Video Music Awards, and while rapper Kendrick Lamar might have taken home the highest mention, a more political statement was made with the ‘Best Fight Against The System’ category.
This year, MTV honored all the nominees in this category, which included the likes of John Legend for ‘Surefire,’ and Logic and Damian Lemar Hudson’s ‘Black SpiderMan.’
One of the standout honorees came from the mixtape of the Broadway musical, Hamilton. The ‘Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)’ featured song from the Hamilton mixtape took home the special award. Sung by K’naan featuring Residente, Riz MCm & Snow Tha Product, the song helped the mixtape reach number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
The entire mixtape features recordings from Chance The Rapper, Usher, Ashanti, Queen Latifah, & Busta Ryhmes.
