BET Hip-Hop Awards 2017: Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar, & DJ Khaled Lead Nominations [Full List]

Published: Thursday 14th Sep 2017 by Sam

Look up any chart this year and Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar, and DJ Khaled will have been firm fixtures.

It’s fitting, then, that the trio lead the nominations for the BET Hip-Hop Awards 2017.

Listed in all of the main categories, the group are followed by both JAY-Z and Chance The Rapper, who have nabbed five noms a piece.

Set to tape at The Fillmore in Miami on October 6th, the annual extravaganza will broadcast on BET on October 10th.
This year’s show sees the spectacle move from Atlanta to Florida and organizers are keen to support those affected by the hurricanes in the region.
BET Interim Head of Programming Connie Orlando said in a statement:

“While BET is extremely excited to bring BET ‘Hip Hop Awards’ 2017 to Miami, Florida, we remain sensitive to the millions of victims affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with those who are facing the impact of this catastrophic storm. As a network, we are committed to offering our full support during this most devastating time. Through Hip Hop Awards 2017, our ‘Hip Hop for Hurricane Relief’, will bring together some of the biggest names in hip hop to acknowledge those in need as the country begins the difficult process of rebuilding.”

    Kendrick all the way….and Cardi I suppose

  2. The Wig Snatcher September 14, 2017

    Cardi is having the best year ever. I’m very proud of her. I am also happy to see Kendrick Lamar receiving lots of nominations because DAMN. is the best hiphop album of the decade so far.

  3. Pat September 14, 2017

    Cardi nominated in almost every category! 🙂

  4. SMH September 28, 2017

    Wow they’re really going overboard with the Cardi hype. Just like they did when Nicki came on the scene. She better hope history doesn’t repeat itself 10 years from now.
