Drake and Kendrick Lamar to Compete

Drake and Kendrick Lamar to Compete

The DrakeKendrick Lamar showdown will continue — at the 2024 BET Awards.

The rappers will compete in two categories at the June 30 show: best male hip-hop artist and best collaboration. In the latter category, Drake is nominated for “Rich Baby Daddy” with SZA and Sexyy Red, while Lamar is nominated for his guest verse on the remix of Beyoncé’s “America Has a Problem.”

Drake is the show’s top contender with seven nominations, thanks to his album For All the Dogs (Scary Hours Edition). Lamar didn’t release an album that was eligible this year. The Canadian rapper’s other nominations include album of the year, best male R&B/pop artist and viewer’s choice for “Rich Baby Daddy.” He’s nominated twice in the video of the year category: “Rich Baby Daddy” and his guest verse on J. Cole’s “First Person Shooter,” the late 2023 track that reignited his feud with Lamar.

Nicki Minaj follows Drake with six nominations, including bids for video of the year for “Barbie World” with Ice Spice and Aqua, album of the year for Pink Friday 2 and best female hip-hop artist.

For video of the year, Minaj and Drake will take on Lil Durk and J. Cole’s “All My Life,” Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “Bongos,” Victoria Monét’s “On My Mama,” Usher, Summer Walker and 21 Savage’s “Good Good” and Doja Cat’s “Agora Hills.” 

For album of the year, those nominated alongside Drake and Minaj’s projects are: Monét’s Jaguar II, Chris Brown’s 11:11, Usher’s Coming Home, Killer Mike’s Michael, 21 Savage’s American Dream and Gunna’s A Gift & A Curse.

SZA, J. Cole, Sexyy Red and Monét earned five nominations apiece. Acts who scored four nominations are Beyoncé, Usher, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, 21 Savage and Tyla.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 12-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter — who has won a Grammy, NAACP Image Award and Soul Train Music Award — is nominated for the YoungStars Award, which honors child and teen entertainers. Other nominees are Akira Akbar, Demi Singleton, Heiress Diana Harris, Jabria Mccullum, Jalyn Hall, Leah Jeffries and Van Van.

Performers at the event airing live on BET from Los Angeles include Monét, Sexyy Red, Muni Long, Latto, GloRilla and Shaboozey.
