Kanye West Scores Record-Setting Number of BET Hip-Hop Award Nominations

Kim Kardashian must be one heck of a muse to Kanye West!

With the success of his fashion line and his upcoming album Cruel Summer, the illustrious rapper’s career has only been gaining momentum. So what’s Yeezy’s latest accomplishment? The rapper just swept the BET Hip-Hop Award nominations as he has the chance to win an astounding 17 awards.

Thanks to his successful Watch the Throne collaboration with Jay-Z, Kanye is up for Producer of the Year, Director of the Year, Hustler of the Year, Best Live Performance, and quite a few more.

Other nominations went out to Rapper 2 Chainz, who grabbed 13 nods and Drake who scored 11 nominations.

Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until October to find out just how many of these awards Kanye can actually take home. The seventh annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, which will be hosted by comedian Mike Epps, will air on October 9.
