BET Hip Hop Awards 2013 - Nominations

That time has come again! With October almost upon us, BET have released the nominations for their 2013 Hip Hop Awards. This year the show will be hosted by the one and only Snoop Dogg – or whatever he calls himself these days – and will be filmed at the Civic Center in Atlanta, Georgia on September 28. It will then air in the US October 15, which means we’ll be getting it in the UK a couple of days later on October 18.

Speaking on his job as host Snoop stated:

I’m excited to be hosting this year’s ‘BET Hip Hop Awards 2013’. We’re going to have fun this year and I will make it a show to remember, ya dig?! I’ll be giving a ton of surprises, showcasing my exclusive GGN News clips and bringing all my nieces and nephews to the stage for an exciting night of hip-hop.

The good kid and the self-professed ‘King of New York’, Kendrick Lamar, leads the way with 14 nominations – basically every category he could possibly be nominated for! While Drake follows with 13 nods and J. Cole close behind with 10.

Though the event is just under two months away, BET have already provided us with a hashtag for Twitter #hiphopawards – so don’t get it twisted on the night! You can keep up to date with the event via its Facebook Page – HipHopAwards and the Twitter feed @HipHopAwards.
