If you missed the hot ratchet mess that was the 2014 BET Hip-hop Awards on Tuesday, good for you. That means you can limit your recap to the evening’s better moments.

Such was the performance by Common, Vince Staples and Jay Electronica who hit the stage backed by a full choir for their “Kingdom” remix.

The rappers were joined onstage by the parents of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old young man who was murdered by an officer in Ferguson, Mo. on August 9th.

The emotional tribute ended in a moment of silence as everyone stood with their hands in the air. Watch below.
