Cardi B leads BET awards nominations, Nipsey Hussle up for one

The BET Awards nominations list is out and Cardi B is leading the pack with seven nods. Bardi is competing with hot, new rap diva Megan Thee Stallion, as well as Kash Doll, Lizzo, Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. In addition to going toe-to-toe with those skilled emcees, Cardi’s also up against herself in the Video of the Year category. Her music visual with Bruno Mars for their record “Please Me” will rival the visual for her solo track, “Money,” so the odds are ever in her favor.

Right behind Cardi with the most nominations stands Drake with five, and then Beyoncé, J. Cole and Travis Scott with four nominations each. Cole, Drake, and Scott share the Best Male Hip-Hop Artist category with fellow rappers 21 Savage, Meek Mill, and the late Nipsey Hussle.
