DJ Khaled, JAY-Z, and Chance the Rapper also picked up nominations for the upcoming awards.
It’s been one hell of a year for Cardi B and now the rapper is garnering even more praise, receiving nine nominations for the upcoming BET Hip Hop Awards.
Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow” has been tearing up the charts and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t know the lyrics to her hit song.
Lamar’s Damn earned widespread acclaim and double platinum certification in July. DJ Khaled’s Grateful, which saw the musician and Snapchat star collaborating with major names in music, was one of the summer’s biggest hits. It’s Khaled’s second number one album.
The BET Hip Hop Awards air Oct. 10 on BET.
