    Not ONE nomination for Nicki?! LOL!

    • LOL September 12, 2019

      BET retired Nicki’s seat picture. Debra L. Lee personally took it out the her Mercedes Benz after work popped the trunk and put it in (smacking on a Life Saver)….lol. ;p

      • I hate black n whyte all of you. Y’all just not s*** September 12, 2019

        Before you cardi ass kissers post on my b**** Nikki……

        Bet the same show who f***** over Diddy legend award gave it to Mary Blige she not s*** compared to Puff Daddy… The world of Nicki Minaj is soooo much greater

      • Only Facts September 12, 2019

        Are you serious? Mary j Blige has 8 multiplatinum albums 80 million sold 9 Grammys 2 Oscar nominations so what do you mean Diddy deserved that? All he’s done is create other artists, only to throw them away as quickly as he found them. He is not legend as an ARTIST. He’s a legend as a mogul. But, he isn’t going in the books as one of the best rappers. So, sit.

  2. katycat September 12, 2019

    Nicki wept

  3. IG : mixedboy September 12, 2019

    Well deserved. ❤️

  4. Kai2dasuan September 12, 2019

    I can see Cardi will atleast 5-6 awards. Congratulations cardi b!!!!

  5. Tyty September 12, 2019

    The name of some of these awards?? I swear BET is just a channel for black people to embarrass themselves. Is BET owned by a black person?? Cause this s*** ain’t right. There needs to be a black awards show where it shows respect and dignity to black music not this s***!!!

    • Only Facts September 12, 2019

      Uh…the BET Awards is respected, as well as the Soul Train Awards. So, let’s not, please.

  6. POPS MOTHER September 12, 2019

    RAP’S IT girl winning across all levels and getting the recognition she deserves ! congratulations to Ms. CARDI B!

  7. King of Kingz September 12, 2019

    ?only cuz they know she’ll show up & potentially give them some viewers, no other big celebrities shows to the hip hop awards lol

    • Darius September 12, 2019

      Hatin ass ????

  8. KeepingItReal September 12, 2019

    No onika, that career with Anna Nicole Smith now lmao ???

  9. I hate black n whyte all of you. Y’all just not s*** September 12, 2019

    I won’t be watching.

    • Darius September 12, 2019

      Mary j Blige has 8 multiplatinum albums 80 million sold 9 Grammys 2 Oscar nominations so wtf u mean Diddy ass deserved legend award stupid ass

      • jan September 12, 2019

        exactly, i thought he was joking

  10. Darius September 12, 2019

    Queen ??????????

  11. High Price September 12, 2019

    Wow! Smh. Congratulations to ALL of the nominees. Even though I don’t think “The Carters” should have been nominees for ANYTHING in 2019 at the hip hop awards…. please make it make sense…. Like the era isn’t even recent…. makes no sense.

    But besides that, I don’t see why Nicki couldn’t get nominated for at least “Hustler of the Year”, Lyricist of the year or even album of the year… DJ Khaled SHOULD NOT have been nominated for the album of the year category. Smh. I honestly didn’t believe that Nicki hate train thing but now I do have questions..

    • Only Facts September 12, 2019

      There is no Nicki Hate train. However, Nicki did create a Lil Kim hate train 10 years ago. Is she upset karma circled back around and picked Nicki up at the bus stop? Aww. Cardi is here to stay and Nicki’s career is…well…with Anna Nicole Smith.

  12. I hate black n whyte all of you. Y’all just not s*** September 12, 2019

    Shout out to lil Wayne…..

  13. biancacook September 12, 2019

    ion know why ppl confused about nicki not getting a nom. she picked a fight with everybody in the industry including her label and managment and a fashion brand, had a failed tour, and ppl still don’t know what happened to the rest of it. nothing she did as the Queen, alone, stuck to the wall. No award performances, cardi hitting num 1 multiple times and getting a grammy and an abrupt retirement that isn’t really a retirement. if there is a hate train nicki is driving it.

    • Only Facts September 12, 2019

      THIS!!! Nicki Minaj did ALLLLL of this to herself!

  14. I hate black n whyte all of you. Y’all just not s*** September 12, 2019

    Who look better, Nicki or cardi??

    Nicki mi mutha f***** nah is prettier

  15. Gee September 12, 2019

    When Nicki was being recognized by BET regularly her fans ate it up, but now that they have gone radio silent on her their awards and recognition are irrelevant. She won for 7 years in a row and she was celebrated, and now that she is not nominated at all it’s all kinds of conspiracy theories. Maybe this year was just not her year it happens to all the greats but it does not take away from her past accomplishments or her legacy. I just think that Nicki needs to regroup and make the public hungry for her again.

  16. Bloop September 12, 2019

    Who cares? Bet is a joke these days, check out their plummeting ratings.

    • Only Facts September 12, 2019

      The barbs didn’t consider BET a joke when Nicki was winning year after year, did they? Hmm..

  17. Ladi September 12, 2019

    wtf is a BET awards? lmao!

    • Only Facts September 12, 2019

      Pretty much the only awards Nicki Minaj has received…along with a couple of VMA awards. But um, yeah 92% of her awards are from BET 🙂 You know who they are, hun 😉

  18. Fact September 12, 2019

    What happened barbies no Nicki Minaj cardi B top runner with most nominations wow I guess it’s clear cardi sat y’all Barbie down too bad she raps way better then Nicki anyway poor Barbies

  20. True September 12, 2019
