Peep any chart this year and Drake and Cardi B will have been firm fixtures. And that’s on a global scale.

It’s fitting, then, that the duo lead the nominations for the 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards 

Listed in all of the main categories, Drizzy leads with a whopping 11 honors, while new mom Cardi follows with a titan-like ten. Others named include The Carters (Jay-Z + Beyonce), Migos, and J. Cole.

Set to tape on October 6th, the annual extravaganza will broadcast on BET on October 16th.

    Cardi while i do roll with her, has screwed up marketing and image with this mess. Release SHE BAD and lets get back to business ho_e.

    • The Wig Snatcher September 12, 2018

      Nicki will commit suicide when She Bad becomes #1 and I will put it on IG Live. Haaaaaaaaa

      • China September 12, 2018

        SHE BAD is the urban cut. Cardi releasing ballads when she NEEDS TO RELEASE SHE BAD

      • ??? September 12, 2018

      • Faf September 12, 2018

        She’s not releasing s***

        She’s trying to make a new album for holiday season so it can shift more than 200k pure in 5 mos

    • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) September 12, 2018

      Being hood is a part of her image. Unlike Nicki she actually lives her raps. She’ll be fine.

    • Rasputia Lattimore is TIRED of white trash demon Danzou BEGGING to Eat Her Box and Impersonating her September 12, 2018

      I don’t think Nicki is seething over this. Neither is Kenyatta West seething over this. Cardi B will show up. Drake won’t These rappers in the gam more than 5 years stop showing for the EBT Awards unless BET promisses them they will win. The only seasoned artist that shows up excited at these EBT Awards is Chris Brown because he loves the attention and always gets shut down at the white award shows like the Grammies. The rest are has-been artists and newer artists that go there without promised awards by BET.

    Cardi B. STAY winning on that QUEEN ish.

    • ??? September 12, 2018

  7. DanYiel Iman September 13, 2018

    Cardi is doing what Nicki McFraud has done throughout her career but she’s doing it on her own accord & not being someone else. ?”Bzzz”?
