Lil Wayne Nominated For BET Awards

LIL WAYNE will have another chance to show why he is the “Best Rapper Alive”.

 

Wayne received 12 nominations for the third annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, which will air on October 23.

The rapper scored the year’s best-selling album sales debut this month, with 1 million copies sold of his new CD, Tha Carter III.

Kanye West drew the second-most nominations with seven, while Jay-Z got six. TI, who was arrested hours before he was to headline the show last year, grabbed three nominations.

The network will also recognise hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons with the I Am Hip-Hop icon award. Simmons is known for launching Def Jam Recordings with Rick Rubin.

The show will be hosted by Katt Williams for the third year. –– Bangshowbiz.
