The upcoming BET awards are led by none other than Toronto’s biggest artist Drake. The rapper is front of the line with a total of 14 nominations. Other top finishers include Future (10), DJ Khaled (9) and Kanye West (8). The award show will be premiered on October 4th this year.


The lyricist has nominations in several categories including Album of the Year, Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, Best Hip-Hop Video, and several others.

Without a doubt Drake has had another huge year in 2016 by smashing multiple Billboard records and releasing a top charting album (currently #2 on the Billboard charts) with Views. This follows up his incredible 2015 year which also saw large mainstream success on the charts.
