News

By: Evan Schwartz / August 23, 2013

Add award nominations to the list of things Kendrick Lamar “Controls.”

Lamar netted 14 nominations for the upcoming 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards. Drake had the second most at 13, while J. Cole picked up 10 nods. The awards are set for October 15, at 8:00 P.M., and will be hosted by none other than Snoop Lion, aka Uncle Snoop, aka the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg.

The nominees were announced on BET’s “106 & Park” on Thursday (August 22). Lamar gained nods in nearly every category, including Best Lyricist, Best Live Performer, and MVP of the Year. Although his “Control” verse dropped too late for considering, his verse on “Problems” is up for the Sweet 16 award for best featured verse.
