Also appearing on the performers list of the June 27 awards show are Ludacris, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Nicki Minaj and Trey Songz.
The return of Kanye West is just around the corner. The rap mogul who avoided spotlight following his much-criticized stage crash at 2009 MTV Video Music Awards has been officially announced as musical guest at this year's BET Awards.
The event is sure to become Kanye's good platform in promoting his new album tentatively titled "Good Ass Job". Moreover, the gig might see him walking home with a trophy as he is nominated in two categories this year, one for Best Collaboration with Lil Wayne and Eminem and the other for Video of the Year with Jay-Z and Rihanna.
The 10th Annual BET Awards is going to be held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on June 27. Ludacris, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, T.I., Drake, P. Diddy's Dirty Money, Nicki Minaj and Trey Songz are among the performers line-up.
Queen Latifah will take the mic as a host and John Legend will attend the event to receive Humanitarian Award. Leading the nominations list, meanwhile, is Jay-Z with five nods.
