DaBaby Leads The Field In The 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards Nominations

The 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards are set to air Tuesday, October 27, and today, the nominees were announced. North Carolina rapper DaBaby leads the way with 12 nominations, while fellow 2019 breakout artist Roddy Ricch is right behind him with 11. Perennial contender Drake brings it in at third place with eight nominations, which ties him with one last 2019 favorite, Megan Thee Stallion.

DaBaby, who dropped two albums in 2019 and one early this year, is double-nominated for Album Of The Year (Blame It On Baby and Kirk), Best Collaboration (“Rockstar” with Roddy Ricch and Jack Harlow’s “What’s Poppin” remix), Best Video, and Song Of The Year (“Bop” and “Rockstar” in both categories). DaBaby won Best New Hip-Hop Artist last year, so he’s no stranger to racking up awards, and his 12 nods this year highlight just how successful his last 12 months have been.
