    Although the jury is still out on if he can claim the King of New York crown, it can’t be denied Kendrick Lamar has had a helluva year in music. Compton’s native son received an astounding 14 BET Hip-Hop Award nominations. With 14 nominations, Kendrick proves he is hip-hop’s new school leader. Some of the people he named in his controversial verse on “Control” will be his competitors in a number of categories. With 13 nominations, Drake will be scrapping for “Lyricist of the Year” with K. Dot and J. Cole who has 11 nominations. While it’s a good look to be nominated for so many awards, it might be a personal victory for Kendrick that he is nominated up against Jay Z and Nas for “Album of the Year.”

    Plenty of popular rappers received a great deal of nominations, but they pale in comparison to Kendrick Lamar. 2 Chainz picked up nine noms. A$AP Rocky racked up eight nominations while Kanye West comes in with four nods.

    The BET Hip-Hop Awards will be held on September 28 at the Atlanta Civic Center with Snoop Dogg-Lion serving as the host. If you cannot attend the actual ceremony, you”ll have to wait until October 15th for it to air on BET.
