Lil Wayne Scores 18 Nominations at 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards


The '6 Foot 7 Foot' rapper leads the pack of this year's contenders by nabbing 18 nominations including MVP of the Year and Hustler of the Year.

Fresh off making a grand entrance on Billboard Hot 200 with a whopping 964,000 copies of "Tha Carter IV", Lil Wayne scores a ridiculous amount of nods at this year's BET Hip-Hop Awards. Weezy receives a record-breaking 18 nominations at the sixth annual prize-giving event.

The dreadlocked rapper gets his multiple nods in such coveted categories as Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, MVP of the Year and Hustler of the Year. His single "6 Foot 7 Foot" is additionally vying for Track of the Year, Best Club Banger and Verizon People's Champ Award.

The Young Money MC bumps into "Watch the Throne" duo Jay-Z and Kanye West in more than three categories. They are joined in the battles by the likes of fellow rappers Busta Rhymes, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa and P. Diddy.

Weezy's domination is followed by Kanye and Khalifa who get 9 nods each and Rick Ross who grabs 8 nods. Other nominees who appear in multiple categories include Chris Brown, Rihanna, Drake, DJ Khaled, Cee-Lo Green, Big Sean and Minaj. The latest is the only femcee who gets nominated this year.
