    The Kendrick Lamar Awards…Happy Chance got a nod…

  • peaceofpi

    Does anyone watch this shit for anything other than the cypher?

  • LA

    I don’t understand why they just don’t put the cyhers in the regular BET Awards, and just have one big award show a year! Two BET award shows are so unnecessary

  • UDT

    not really an award show, more of honoring Kendrick. In my opinion the guy should win most or even all of these.

  • crackadon

    no love for Yeezus?

    fuck B.E.T.

    i hate how certain media outlets simply couldn’t grasp that album.

  • Quickstrike

    Isn’t Macklemore hip hop? Why doesn’t he get any consideration for these things?

  • Read a book

    1. Kendrick
    2. Kendrick
    3. Kendrick

  • k

    honest cowboy? really? shit just came out a couple days ago lol

  • Chopz

    @k was just bout to say that

    Acid rap for mixtape of the year

  • marty mcfly

    Kanye West will win every award this year.

  • Mac Dre

    @k and @chopz Even though Honest Cowboy is new, it’s not like it doesn’t deserve the nomination. I am torn between that and Detroit though in that category.

    @Quickstrike Kinda like the Hottest MC list, Macklemore doesn’t get included I think because he’s been claimed by the pop audience. I’m not saying it’s right or fair (he should be included), but I think that’s why.

  • Super Yams

    @Quickstrike, fuck you and your honky rap heroes. go watch MTV video awards for dat faggoty gobbage.

  • Isaac

    Run the Jewels?

  • Dah truth
