Inaugural Balls abound in Washington DC and there were no shortage of celebs making the rounds in support of worthy causes during this inaugural year. The Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball II, a ball which celebrates the re-election of President Barack Obama, honored mega recording artist John Legend and hip-hop's latest burgeoning force 2 Chainz at Washington DC 's Harmon Center for the Arts. The Sunday, January 20th event gave lifetime achievement awards to MC Lyte and Doug E. Fresh. The event was sponsored by Philanthropik and Russell Simmon's Hip-Hop Summit Artist Network.
