Drake tops BET Awards nominations

Drake leads the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards nominations with 14.

Drake will face Kanye West, who has 10 nominations, in several categories, including the coveted Hip Hop Artist of the Year.

Drake and Kanye will face stiff competition in the category from Cardi B, Doja Cat, Future, Kendrick Lamar and Megan Thee Stallion.

Kanye’s collab with Cardi and Lil Durk, “Hot Shit,” has a nod to best hip-hop video, but Drake has two chances in the category.

The video for her song “Way 2 Sexy,” featuring Future and Young Thug, gets a snap, as does Future’s “Wait For U,” which features Drake and Tems.

Elsewhere, Drake and Kanye will compete in the Best Live Performer and Hustler Of The Year categories, as well as Hip Hop Album Of The Year.

Drake has a nod for ‘Certified Lover Boy’, while Kanye is in for ‘Donda’, and they’ll take on Latto’s ‘777’, Future’s ‘I Never Liked You’, Pusha T’s ‘It’s Almost’ record Dry”, Nas’ album ‘King’s Disease II’ and ‘Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers’.

Besides Kanye and Drake dominating the nods, the Best Duo or Group category will see 42 Dugg and Est Gee, Big Sean and Hit-Boy, Birdman and Youngboy Never Broke Again, Blxst and Bino Rideaux, DaBaby and Youngboy Never Broke Again, Erthgang , and Styles P and Havoc clash.

Additionally, ATL Jacob, Baby Keem, Hit-Boy, Hitmaka, Kanye, Metro Boomin and Pharrell Williams are vying for Producer of the Year.

Fat Joe will host this year’s ceremony on September 30 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia, and the event will be televised on October 4.
