BET Hip-Hop Awards 2012 Nominations: Rick Ross Gets Trampled by Kanye West

Categories: News
And the nominees are ... Kanye West, a handful of other MCs, and seven websites.

During 106 and Park last night, actor-comedian Mike Epps announced that he'd be reprising his role as host of BET's annual Hip-Hop Awards, airing October 9, and revealed some of this year's nominees.

Yeezy was nominated in just about every category, securing 17 nods that included Producer of the Year and Video Director of the Year. Meanwhile, Drake and 2 Chainz also racked up more than 10 nominations each, rounding out the top three.

But Miami's biggest Bawse only walked away with three nods.

Check out the nominees after the cut.
