Lil Wayne Earns 18 BET Hip Hop Awards Nominations, Tweets About "Wakk" Skate Park
Naturally, Mr. Carter received nods for his personal style (Made-You-Look Award), and work ethic (Hustler of the Year). But surprisingly, Weezy also racked up nominations for his less-than-stellar solo contribution to hip-hop this year.
Let's be real ... Tha Carter IV was wakker than an Omaha skate park. The dude's gone soft. Damn you, prison.
Waka Flocka Flame, on the other hand, that dude goes hard in the motherfucking paint, and his joint "No Hands" is up against Weezy's "6 foot 7 foot" for Best Club Banger.
Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa snagged nine nominations each, while Miami's Teflon Don, Rick Ross, was nominated an impressive eight times. However, four of those eight are on tracks featuring Lil Wayne, including DJ Khaled's "I'm on One."
As for Best Hip-Hop Video, Lil Wayne's nominated twice ("Look at me Now" and "I'm the One"). But so is Rihanna ("All Of The Lights" and "Love the Way You Lie").
Even though she's only featured on those tracks, any video starring Rihanna is better than, well, just about anything. Shit, BET should've nominated that YouTube clip of her getting loose at Carnival in Barbados.
The BET Hip-Hop Awards, Hosted by Mike Epps air at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 11.
