Lil Wayne just might be having the best week ever! On top of the Tha Carter IV album nearly going platinum in its first week, the Young Money rapper now leads the pack with 18 BET Hip-Hop Award nominations.
Not only is Weezy leading the pack with the number of nominations he received, but he has also broken the record for attaining the most nominations for the BET Hip Hop Awards in a given year period! Among his nods: Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, MVP of the Year, Track of the Year, Best Club Banger and Best Featured Verse (“Motivation” by Kelly Rowland).
Coming up right behind Weezy with 9 nominations each, were rappers Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. Rick Ross nabbed 8 nominations of his own, including Hustler of the Year, MVP of the Year, and Lyricist of the Year.
Other nominees included Frank Ocean, Diggy Simmons, Big K.R.I.T., Big Sean, and Tyler, the Creator.
The BET Hip-Hop Awards airs October 11 on BET and will be hosted by comedian Mike Epps.
