HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Snoop Dog was named an "Icon," but youth was also well served at the BMI Urban Music Awards in Hollywood.

BMI said 20-year-old Lex Luger became the youngest "Urban Producer of the Year" and B.o.B, 22, was the youngest "Song of the Year" winner for "Nothin' on You."

BMI said in a written statement the honorees also included Kanye West, Drake and R. Kelly.

One of the highlights of Friday's gala at the Pantages Theater was the salute to Snoop Dog with the annual "BMI Icon" award. He joins the likes of James Brown, George Clinton and The Jacksons on the roster.

The award included a speech by Dr. Dre and a musical tribute from Warren G, Nas, Game and other top-tier artists. Snoop himself took part in a rendition of "What's My Name?"
