My friend October's very Own @Drake leads the pack at the 2015 BET #HIPHOP awards coming in October! #HNNMusic

From the day I met Drake on the Beyonce concert line in 2007 at Molson Amphitheater in Toronto, Canada, he was just a Degrassi actor. He gave me a demo and I posted it on HipHossip my old music blog. I supported these upcoming artists a lot in Canada and they all blew up now. So it's no surprise he's leading the BET noms again. October's very own should win em all this October.

Hip-Hop’s fiercest lyricists will come together for the BET Hip-Hop awards to see who will earn the crown and who will go home empty handed.

The nominees were revealed Monday (September 14) with Drake and Big Sean leading the pack with 12 and 10 nominations respectively. Future’s three-peat mixtapes Monster, Beast Mode and 56 Nights all earned the Future Hive leader nods for the “Best Mixtape” category. Bobby Shmurda will compete with Dej Loaf, Tink, Fetty Wap and Rae Sremmurd for the “Who Blew Up Award” and Wale’s The Album About Nothing, will go up against Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive, K.Dot’s To Pimp A Butterfly, Nicki Minaj’s The PinkPrint and Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

The category which will cause the most debate is “Lyricist of The Year.” Kendrick Lamar, J.Cole, Big Sean, Drake and Nicki Minaj will all battle it out for the coveted award, which will most certainly spark many barbershop conversations about “real rap” and inspire a think piece or two from your friendly hip-hop blogger.

Peep the full list of nominees below. The BET Hip-Hop awards airs Tuesday, October 13.
Congrats to all the nominees.
