The BET Awards, which will be held for this present year June 25 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, discharged the designations Monday (May 15). Maybe one of the greatest storylines of the night will be the Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma quarrel.
In spite of the fact that Remy Ma as of late guaranteed that the “dust has settled,” she will go up against the authoritative champion for the title of Best Female Hip Hop Artist. Nicki Minaj has won the honor each year since 2010. Prior to her run, the Terror Squad vet did make a case for the title. Other ladies incorporated into the class this year are Missy Elliott, Young M.A, and Cardi B.
Beyoncé drives all chosen people with seven gestures. Queen Bey is up for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and twice for Best Collaboration with Kendrick Lamar for “Freedom” and DJ Khaled’s “Shinning” with her better half Jay Z. She’s likewise designated for Video of the Year for “Sorry,” which gave her a gesture for Video Director of the Year close by Kahlil Joseph. Her widely praised LEMONADE collection is up for Album of the Year.
Chance The Rapper is up for four honors, including Album of the Year for “Coloring Book”, and Best New Artist where he’ll go up against Cardi B, Young M.A, Khalid, and 21 Savage.
Migos gets, that is correct, a trio of selections. Quavo, Takeoff and Offset are up for Best Group and their raving success “Bad and Boujee” with Lil Uzi Vert is in the running for Best Collaboration and Video of the Year.
