Drake, Ye, & Kendrick Lamar Are Highest Nominated Artists At The 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards

No comments

Fat Joe will be hosting the upcoming ceremony, taking place on Tuesday, October 4th.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Fat Joe has been tapped to host the upcoming 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards. On Monday (September 12) the star-studded nominees’ list was confirmed, and as Complex notes, Drake came out on top this year with an impressive 14 nods thrown his way.

Following behind the Canadian rap star is Kanye West, who earned 10 nominations of his own, including one for Hip Hop Artist of the Year. Rounding out the top three is Kendrick Lamar, who was recognized nine times thanks to his work on Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

Other potential big winners at the October 4th ceremony could include Future (eight nominations), and Baby Keem, Cardi B, and J. Cole, all of whom earned six each.

Doja Cat, Latto, Lil Durk, Tems, and Young Thug are other contenders for some of the evening’s biggest trophies, and we have yet to find out who will be performing, but it’s sure to be an unforgettable show.
