Hip hop figures and sneaker connoisseurs: Fabolous, Pusha T, Casey Veggies, Syd Tha Kyd, and Vashtie came together to present their different street wear ensembles that complement sneakers.

As shown above, Fabolous walked the runway along with his son Johan Jackson and Emily B‘s daughter Taina, as they paid homage to the 90’s throwback fashion trends during Fab’s segment.

Hosts Diggy Simmons and Tracy G spoke to each of the fashion curators about their inspiration behind the looks throughout the night. Sounds were provided by NYC’s DJ Brittany Sky. Not only did the event focus on fashion in hip hop culture today, but BET.com took time to pay tribute to the late hip hop legend, Sean Price.

We knew Diggy Simmons had a little singing voice but this by far has to be his best track and sound to date!

As Valentine’s Day weekend was upon us, Simmons dropped a new visual entitled “Fall,” which showcases Diggy’s softer side for love, as he cross the Brooklyn Bridge humming the lyrics to the featured track and moving to the beat of the drum. Great song Diggy!
