BET Shows Kanye West Love with 9 Nominations for the BET Hip Hop Awards

- By Bossip Staff

Kanye West, the topic of everyone’s conversation, is leading with 9 nominations at the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, GA that airs next month. BET is the sister company to MTV, so we really wonder how all this is going to turn out… especially if he wins.

The collective universe (current and former presidents included) may still be hard at work condemning Kanye West’s actions at this past Sunday’s VMA Awards, but someone still loves him.

The divisive hip-hop star leads the pack of BET Hip Hop Award nominees this week with nine — including Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, CD of the Year, and MVP of the year, as well as People’s Champ (a.k.a. Viewers Choice).

Ice Cube will be honored as this year’s “I Am Hip-Hop” Icon Award recipient, and the late DJ AM garners a nod for for DJ of the Year. Two new categories have also been added: “Made-You-Look Award (Best Hip Hop Style)” and “Best Hip-Hop Blog Site.”

Will Kanye’s current mea culpa tour be sufficiently wrapped up for him to attend the show, slated for October 10 in Atlanta? When reached for comment, a BET spokeswoman said, “Most guests start confirming next week or the first week in October, so we wouldn’t really know yet. But we would love to have him there!”

What do you think, Music Mixers — a nice opportunity for ‘Ye to make nice, or better that he stay away and focus on “taking the time off and just analyze” his recent behavior? What do you think of the other nominations?

    He spoke the truth, just at the wrong place.lol

  • http://www.bossip.com NADINE

    YOU KNOW HE DID SPEAK THE TRUTH JUST AT THE WRONG PLACE!!!KANYE IS THE BOSS I JUST LOVE HIS MUSIC. KANYE. kANYE!!!kANYE TO THE WORLD!!!

  • Alrighty Then... (why do all of the "men" on Bossip argue w/ bitches?)

    And Obama spoke the truth when he called him a jackass. Just at the wrong place and time. What is the big deal about that? According to some folk’s logic, it doesn’t matter when, where, or how you say what you say, so long as it is the truth. Tact and respect have no place in today’s society, and that is sad.

  • WordtotheWise

    I can’t believe this is still a topic. The man apologized, and as someone up top said, Taylor got more publicity than ever. We all do stupid things at time. I’m not a Kanye fan, but I did feel people way WAAAAY overboard with this madness.

  • blu buddafly

    sigh look kids….listen real close. The VMA and The BET Hip Hop Awards and all these awards are fake fake fake fake fake. Due to the the backlash Kanye will get maybe one award. And the producers are secretly hoping he’ll spazz out again!

    Good For Ratings!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.mythoughtsonblast.com Diva

    Yes it was at the wrong place and the wrong time, but still HE SAID WHAT HE SAID NOW LET’S MOVE ON…

    How about we talk about what his girl Amber Rose is doing? That’s a bad b*tch & I love her style….

  • http://allhiphop.com Dr. Booty Itch

    Since when 808 & Heartbreak was a hip hop album?..lol

  • white male

    Hopefully young black males look up to Obama and not this list of thugs nominated for awards

  • dayg715

    9 nomination, huh. hmmm, BET owned by MTV, now i’m starting to wonder about all those ‘publicity stunt’ rumors. it’ll be confirmed once the ratings for this award show are in.

  • B'More

    hopefully someone from the country music world comes and interrupts him. then i’d like to see how many of you will still say ‘what he did was right’.

  • hellonursenancy

    BET, i’m really happy for you, and ima let you finish, but VH1 had the best hip-hop awards show of all time! Of all time!

    808s & heartbreak is a year old, no? Wasn’t he nominated last year? “Live your life”, “pop champagne”, “mrs. officer”….they all seem so 2 years ago….

  • YE fan

    CONGRADS to Kanye, he deserves the 9 nominations.

    Keep Making Good Music.

  • WordtotheWise

    B’More>>>Anyone who says what Kanye did was right is a moron. What he did was rude and just plain ole wrong, but I still think people blew this WAY out of proportion. It’s over and done with, so people really need to move on. I’m sure Taylor has. This incident, in my opinion, is just not that serious.

    P.S. For those of you who are still so incensed about this, I hope you put this kind of energy into issues involving making this world a better place. Again, the incident is OVER AND DONE WITH. When white folks do us wrong, we don’t even carry on to this extent. If we do, it’s over and done, and we forget about it. Taylor got her moment, thanks to Beyonce. I’m sure she’s moved on so why can’t some of you? Sheesh!

  • bcan

    hell he probably won’t even show up. i’ll be surprised. the other people won’t be there either – they don’t go to the “black” award shows….which is really sad….

  • Larry

    He’s gonna be nervous as hell getting his award

    thelayoutspot.net

  • Lovie

    Lil Wayne, TIP, Jay Z and Kanye better walk away with at least one. They are hip-hop’s heavyweights and none of them deserve to lose!

  • kelleykel09

    yeah he should win something and attend, because first of all he deserves it he’s judge by his music not him being an a$$hole or not. second of all the $hit is old now and done with. he apologized, build a bridge and get the f*ck over it, my god!!!
