On Oct. 5, the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards will make its triumphant return to Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Center after vacationing in Miami for the last two years. After besting his peers with eight nominations in 2018, this year, Drake slides into third place with seven, allowing Cardi B to lead the pack with double-digit honors.

After notching four wins at last year’s festivities, Cardi looks to clinch more victories this time around with her 10 nominations including MVP of the Year, hot ticket performer, hustler of the year, best collab, single of the year, made-you-look award, and two nods for the best hip-hop video, & sweet 16 categories.

Though Cardi didn’t deliver her sophomore album in 2019, she stayed busy slinging out Hot 100 bangers in “Money,” “Press” and “Please Me.”

There’s a three-way tie for second as DJ Khaled, Travis Scott and J. Cole each nab eight nominations. Despite his passing earlier this year, Nipsey Hussle pulls away with a handful of nods, netting five. As for newcomers, Megan Thee Stallion snags five, while DaBaby closes shop with four.

There will also be a new category this year dubbed best international flow that will highlight artists from different countries such as Nigeria, UK, France, South Africa, Ghana and Canada.

Cardi B

There have been rumours of an online beef between Cardi B and rapper Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi seems to have given credence to that rumour by liking a post calling out rival female rapper Megan.

Megan has been doing her best to be civil with Cardi. She even reached out to Cardi to organize a collaboration. But Cardi hasn’t been reciprocating.

Things only got worse when one of Cardi B’s fan pages threw shade at Megan. Megan misspelled the word “complement” in an Instagram post and one of Cardi B’s fan page shamed her for it.

The page sarcastically wrote: “Is this y’all’s college scholar you n*ggas brag about?”

And Cardi reacted by liking the post calling out Megan.
