How many will he take home? Does he care about the these Awards or is he waiting for another Grammy or two? Kanye is in nominated in a couple categories including: Hustler of the Year, CD Of the Year, Best Club Banger, Impact Track, Lyricist of the Year, Best Hip-Hop Video, Perfect Combo Award, Producer of the Year & Video Director of the Year. The Hustler race is a tough one, with bids for 2 Chainz, Jigga, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, as is the People’s Champ, which includes ‘Ye’s “Mercy,” and The Throne’s “Otis,” as well as Meek Mill’s “Ima Boss,” Driicky Graham’s “Snapbacks & Tattoos” and 2 Chainz’s “No Lie.” The Perfect Combo race is no joke, either, with 2 Chainz and Drake’s “No Lie” up against Drake, Wayne and Tyga’s “The Motto (Remix),” J. Cole and Missy Elliott’s “Nobody’s Perfect,” Wale and Miguel’s “Lotus Flower Bomb” and ‘Ye’s “Mercy.”
Right behind Kanye’s 17 BET 2012 Hiphop Award Nominations with 13 nominations is 2 Chainz, with Drake clocking in at 11. Performers for this year’s show, which will be taped on September 29 at Atlanta’s Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, have not yet been announced. The show will also feature a tribute to late hip-hop impresario Chris Lighty. The 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards are set to air on October 9th.
