Trina Nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artists at This Year's BET Awards
With the critical and commercial success, now it's time for the award cycle to take note. Her first official nod: a nomination for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at this year's BET Awards. Trina's been a nominee or winner in the past at the American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, and the Source Hip-Hop Awards, but this is her first shot at the BET title.
Her competition? Ester Dean, Rasheeda, Lil Kim, and Nicki Minaj. This could be tough. Minaj (and the Young Money crew in general) has cleaned up in nominations overall, and the Queen Bee is, well, the Queen Bee.
(Actually, can we count Young Money as Miami artists, kind of, since the men of the group allegedly all bunk together down the street from Miami New Times offices, at the Cite condo? Hah.)
Still, we have faith in Trina. And, oh, Khia must be eating her heart out right about now (though she seems to have chilled out on the MySpace smack-talking in recent months).
