Sarkodie Nominated For 2019 BET Awards.

The nominations for the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards are in.
On Thursday (Sept. 12), BET announced this year's nominees ahead of the show, which will take place in Atlanta's Cobb Energy Center on Oct. 5 before BET airs it on Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. EST.

Cardi B leads the pack with a whopping 10 nominations, including Hot Ticket Performer for her sold-out shows all year, while DJ Khaled, Travis Scott and J. Cole are in a three-way tie for runners-up with eight nominations each.

While Cole didn't put out a solo project this year, he's made some high-profile guest appearances on other tracks, put out the Dreamville compilation album with his team. He also hit up the festival circuit. Behind them, Drake nabbed seven, the late Nipsey Hussle and Megan Thee Stallion both got five and DaBaby, 21 Savage and Rick Ross each racked up four nominations.

Arguably the two most discussed categories are Album of the Year and Best New Artist. For the latter, Travis' Astroworld, which he just finished touring around the world, Meek Mill's Championships, Lizzo's I Love You, Khaled's Father of Asahd, Tyler, The Creator's Igor and the Dreamville compilation album Revenge of the Dreamers 3 are competing.
