Kirk Franklin and rapper Lil Baby won the Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirational Award at last night’s BET Awards for their collaboration We Win on the soundtrack for Space Jam: A New Legacy.  Franklin shared that he has won the award five times before – holding the record in this category – and felt it necessary and appropriate to pass the baton to Maverick City Music, whose members were standing with him on the stage.  Naming them the next generation of gospel music, he gave them the trophy.

Lil Baby was not there but shared with  Rolling Stone  that he is  “proud this is a song that my grandma and kids can listen to, while at the same time I’m still being authentically me. I’m always looking to grow as an artist, and to be a part of the #1 Gospel song in the country…It’s a blessing.”
