Celebs turned out in droves for last night's ASCAP Music Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  Check out Usher, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar and more getting honored, and the fab folks who came out to support.

It was a big night in music kicking off BET Awards weekend.  The ASCAP Music Awards honor phenomenal artists in songwriting and publishing within Gospel, R&B, Rap, and Hip Hop. And since TheYBF.com was there on the scene, we've got who was there.

While Jermaine Dupri's' live band kept the crowd entertained, Usher copped a big award for his accomplishments in the music biz.

These pants are extra snug in certain "areas", but we're liking this all white on Ursh.

Usher was presented with the ASCAP Golden Note Award. And his colleagues Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and L.A. Reid praised his growth as an outstanding artist and father...and recounted his "excellent taste" in women and wild NY weekends with Diddy. Oh?

In Usher’s acceptance speech, he thanked everyone who helped him achieve his dreams and gave a sentimental thank you to his mother, Jonetta Patton, who was front and center along with girlfriend, Grace Miguel.  Yup...

Kendrick Lamar was honored by his mentor Dr. Dre. on stage.  The "Poetic Justice" rapper copped an award as a new up-and-comer in entertainment. And his biggest believer Dr. Dre presented the ASCAP Vanguard Award citing Lamar as "ahead of the trends and talented. He is a class act and I’m proud to know and work with him. And he's continuing the legacy of Compton.”

Agreed Dre.
