DaBaby Becomes First Artist With 2 Album Of The Year Nominations At 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards

4277

DaBaby might be hearing his name called a lot on October 27. The Charlotte native leads all artists with 12 nominations at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards, as the complete list was unveiled on Tuesday (September 29).

The “Suge” rapper makes BET history as the first artist to earn two nominations for album of the year with KIRK and Blame It On Baby. He’s double-nominated in an additional three categories. Roddy Ricch isn’t too far behind with 11 nominations, while Drake and Megan Thee Stallion notched eight.

With DaBaby winning best new artist honors in 2019, he looks to pass the torch to another burgeoning act on the rise. The late Pop Smoke posthumously earns a nomination in the category and he’ll be competing against the likes of Rod Wave, Flo Milli, Jack Harlow, Mulatto and NLE Choppa.

HipHopDX is also represented at the 15th annual awards show along with Complex, HotNewHipHop, The Breakfast Club, The Joe Budden Podcast, The Shade Room and XXL for Best Hip Hop Platform.

Tune in to BET on October 27 at 9 p.m. ET to watch it all unfold. See the full list of nominations below.
