Following the 2020 BET Awards, which paved the way as one of the first awards shows to take place amid the coronavirus pandemic and ongoing Black Lives Matter protests back in June, next month’s Hip Hop Awards will pay tribute to some of the best songs and videos of the year, as well as the industry’s biggest hustlers, the most visible hip hop platforms, and the most impactful protest tracks.

DaBaby and Roddy Ricch lead this year’s nominations, with 12 and 11 nods, respectively, including several for their “Rockstar” collab. Drake tied for third-most, at eight nods apiece, with Megan Thee Stallion — whose “Savage” remix with Beyoncé scored Queen Bey three nominations of her own.
