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.
