The BET Hip-Hop Awards is certainly going into its 17th year the following month on Oct.4 in Atlanta, and nominations have already been released.
1. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj had not been nominated, although she released multiple singles which could have discovered their way in to the Song of the entire year category. Fans on Twitter reacted to the news headlines:
BET awards comes with an agenda. They dont like youngboy. Kendrick shouldve been nominated even Nicki Minaj, said Twitter user @TheyloveTyb.
The fan continued,
Hot shit not being played plus they know it, discussing Cardi Bs release with Kanye West and Lil Durk that didnt chart as high.
Not forgetting her collaboration and music video with Lil Baby earlier this season that was filmed as a movie.
2. Lil Baby
Talking about Lil Baby, he previously two hit songs with Nicki Minaj this season that also wasnt nominated in one category. Although he didnt drop many singles this season, he was featured in multiple hit singles with artists such as for example Chris Brown, Gucci Mane, and Drake.
Baby only received one nomination for his feature on Drakes 2021 Cerified Lover Boy album for the track Girls Want Girls.
Despite being arguably among the hottest artists of today, he didn’t get a nomination for Lyricist of the entire year after declaring his GOAT status.
Gunna got locked up before summer, but nonetheless started off the entire year right with probably the most heard songs of the entire year and had everybody screaming Pushin P. He also wasnt nominated in one category.
4. Key Glock
Key Glock has been around the game for some time now and contains only received one nomination with BET. He dropped his Yellow Tape 2 deluxe album earlier this season, and collaborated with Megan Thee Stallion. Fans argue he deserves more.
Milwaukee artist Lakeyah continues to be new to the overall game but she’s been dropping hits all year including an individual featuring Latto. Her quick success may have given her a go at the Best Breakthrough Hip-Hop Artist Award.

Every generation comes with an artist who significantly influenced the culture.
