BET Hip Hop Awards 2012: Kanye West Dominates With 17 Nominations!

BET announced nominees for the 2012 Hip Hop Awards today we won't pretend we're surprised Kanye West leads the pack!


Kim Kardashian might not be directly responsible for Kanye's success but you better bet your September salary she inspired more than a few of his tracks!


However, there is no denying it that this has been a very big year for the Chicago native and G.O.O.D Music boss- as a producer, performer and director.
Ye’ received the highest nominations for his collaborative work with Jay Z on the ‘Watch the Throne’ album, and his upcoming work on the G.O.O.D Music compilation album ‘Cruel Summer’.
Rapper 2Chainz, follows with an impressive 13 nominations while Drake gets the nod in 11 categories.
The awards will hold on Tuesday October 9 2012 and is to be hosted for the fourth year running, by actor Mike Epps at Atlanta’s Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Centre.
Since he missed making an appearance at the VMA’s some couple of weeks back because of his girlfriend, hopefully, the couple will make a grand appearance at this event!
