The Nominees For The 2021 BET Hip-Hop Awards Are Announced 

It is almost that time of year again for BET to host their annual hip-hop award show. The show pays homage to all of the hip-hop artists that have been killing it all year long. On Thursday, the network announced this year’s nominees for the 2021 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B., and Drake are leading in nominations. Both Megan and Cardi have earned nine nominations each. They are of course nominated for their hit single “WAP,” and they have been nominated for their individual work as well.

Drake, who is fresh off of releasing his highly-anticipated sixth studio album “Certified Lover Boy,” has earned a total of eight nominations. Some of the categories he’s nominated for include, “Best Hip Hop Video”, “Song of The Year”, and “Best Collaborations.”

Bia and Nicki Minaj dropped a summer anthem when they released the remix to Bia’s hit song “Whole Lotta Money,” earning them a BET Hip Hop Award nomination for “Song of the Year,” and “Best Collaboration.”

Other nominees include J. Cole, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, 21 Savage, Lil Nas X, Pooh Shiesty, Yung Bleu, and many others. Including The Shade Room, for “Best Hip-Hop Platform.”
