Drake leads the BET Hip Hop Awards 2022 nominations with 14. The 35-year-old rapper will go up against Ye West, who has 10 nods, in several categories, including the coveted Hip Hop Artist of the Year.

Drake and Kanye will face stiff competition in the category from Cardi B, Doja Cat, Future, Kendrick Lamar, and Megan Thee Stallion. Kanye’s collaboration with Cardi and Lil Durk, ‘Hot S***’, has a nod for Best Hip Hop Video, but Drake has two chances for success in the category.


The video for his song ‘Way 2 Sexy’, featuring Future and Young Thug, has a nod, as does Future’s ‘Wait For U’, which features Drake and Tems.

Elsewhere, Drake and Kanye will do battle in the Best Live Performer and Hustler Of The Year categories, as well as for Hip Hop Album Of The Year. Drake has a nod for “Certified Lover Boy’, while Kanye is up for ‘Donda’, and they will go up against Latto’s ‘777′, Future’s ‘I Never Liked You’, Pusha T record ‘It’s Almost Dry’, Nas album ‘King’s Disease II’, and Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers’.


Aside from Kanye and Drake dominating the nods, the Best Duo or Group category will see 42 Dugg and Est Gee, Big Sean and Hit-Boy, Birdman and Youngboy Never Broke Again, Blxst and Bino Rideaux, DaBaby and Youngboy Never Broke Again, Erthgang, and Styles P and Havoc battle it out.

What’s more, ATL Jacob, Baby Keem, Hit-Boy, Hitmaka, Kanye, Metro Boomin, and Pharrell Williams are up against one another for Producer of The Year.

Fat Joe will host this year’s ceremony on Sept. 30 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia, and the event will be  televised on October 4th.
