The 2019 BET Awards nominations are in and as expected, Cardi B leads the pack with 7 nominations including, “Best Female Hip-Hop” artist and “Album Of The Year.”

The female rap category has become the most anticipated award of the night, but we have a feeling all eyes will be glued to who wins the best male rap award. The late Nipsey Hussle is nominated alongside J. Cole, 21 Savage, Drake, Meek Mill and Travis Scott. With a Grammy-nominated album, we’re sure it will be an emotional moment during the telecast.

This year’s ceremony will take place Sunday, June 23rd at 8/7c at the Staples Center.
