Cardi B Leads the ‘2019 BET Hip Hop Awards’ Nominations

Despite not releasing her sophomore album in 2019, Cardi B is having a huge year. From starring in the upcoming film Hustlers to beefing with Nicki Minaj, she's made a lot of headlines. Now she's leading the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards with the most nominations for the second year in a row.

The rap artist received 10 nominations this year. They include MVP of the year, hustler of the year, single of the year, best hip-hop video and hot ticket performer categories.

She won four awards out of the 10 she was nominated for during last year's ceremony.

Travis Scott, J.Cole and DJ Khaled are tied for second-most nominations with eight each. After leading the nominations last year with 11, Drake slips to third with seven nominations.

Nipsey Hussle, who passed away earlier this year, also received five nominations.

The BET Hip Hop Awards will air October 8th at 8pm.
