The nominations for the 12th Annual BET Awards were announced yesterday at a press conference in New York City. This year’s BET Awards will be hosted by Samuel L. Jackson and take place in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium on July 1st.
Lil Wayne and Drake received 4 nominations each even though they are all in the same categories: “Best Male Hip-Hop Artist”, “Best Collaboration” for “I’m On One” and “The Motto“, and “Viewers’ Choice Award” for “The Motto“. Tyga was also nominated twice for his featured verse on “The Motto” and Nicki Minaj received one nomination for “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist”.
It has been confirmed that Nicki will be performing at the awards show, but there is no word yet on if Weezy or anyone else from YMCMB will be performing.
