Lil Wayne Dominates BET Hip-Hop Awards Nominees

|

Lil Wayne had 964,000 reasons to celebrate yesterday, and on BET’s 106 & Park he got eighteen more—one for each of his nominations for the 6th annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, which air Tuesday, October 11 at 8PM ET. Lil Wayne is so heavily nominated, in fact, that his toughest competition may be himself: he’s twice-nominated in the categories of Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Club Banger, and Verizon People’s Champ, and three-times-nominated for Reese’s Perfect Combo (Best Collab) and Track of the Year. In fact, only three songs account for eleven of those nominations: his own “6 Foot 7 Foot” featuring Cory Gunz, DJ Khaled‘s four-times-nominated “I’m On One” (also featuring Drake and Rick Ross) and Chris Brown‘s “Look At Me Now,” which is nominated in all six song categories (though the Best Featured Verse nomination goes not to Lil Wayne but to Busta Rhymes). “Look At Me Now” is an unsurprising frontrunner: back in June, the song won Best Collaboration, Viewer’s Choice, and Video of the Year at the BET Awards, and when it lost the Best Collaboration VMA to “E.T.,” Kanye West (himself nominated for ten BET Hip-Hop Awards) took to the mic to say that the Chris Brown video deserved to win. Voting for the Verizon People’s Champ Award will open soon; until then, watch “Look At Me Now” and, below the cut, check out the full list of nominees.
