He may be the the newest member of America’s
most obnoxious favorite reality family, but Kanye West is still focused on his music career. And despite the distraction of having a Kardashian hanging on his arm, Kanye’s still a big achiever in the industry. The proof? He has been nominated for 17 BET Hip Hop Awards!
Looks like Kanye’s going to a be a big winner at this year’s BET Hip Hop Awards! The hip hop artist crushed the competition by earning a total of 17 nominations. He’s represented in a wide array of categories, including Best Hip Hop Video, Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, Producer of the Year, Video Director of the Year, and, most importantly, Hustler of the Year.
The really crazy thing about all this is the fact that Kanye hasn’t even released an album since 2010. Still, he’s been a busy guy, getting involved with several music videos and working on collaborations with Big Sean, Pusha T and 2 Chainz. Not to mention being the newest member of the Kardashian klan. That’s gotta be exhausting.
If Kanye wins big, this it won’t be the first time. He won two awards in 2007, two in 2008, one in 2009 and one in 2011. Still, this year definitely is his most impressive in terms of nominations. With all those nominations, he just might be able to beat his record and win three awards this year!
The BET Hip Hop Awards will air on October 9th. Are you planning on watching? And do you think Kanye will be the big winner this year? Share your predictions in the comments section below!
