Two more artists who have been tapped to perform at the upcoming BET Awards have been revealed. The newly-announced musical guests are two Young Money big stars Drake and Lil Wayne. They are joined by previously-announced acts Alicia Keys, Chris Brown and Jill Scott.

Both Drizzy and Weezy are up for multiple kudos this year with the former getting four nominations and the latter receiving five nods. The two labelmates fight against each other in one of the categories, Best Male Hip-Hop Artist. They are additionally facing off the likes of B.o.B, Rick Ross and Kanye West to win the prize.

Honoring the best in music and movie, 2011 BET Awards will air live from Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium on June 26 with Kevin Hart as a host. Special honorees are Patti LaBelle for Lifetime Achievement Award and Steve Harvey for Humanitarian Award.
