DJ KHALED

DJ Khaled returns to BET Hip Hop Awards for his second year as host, with 9 nominations.

Who is the top nominee at the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017? DJ Khaled shares that honor with rappers Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar, but when it comes to hosting the occasion, he might say, "I'm The One." That summer chart-topper from his June release Grateful has risen as high as his always-positive attitude, making his return to hosting duties for a second year something to feel great about.

Taping in Miami on Oct. 6, the awards show is sure to feature many of this past year's most memorable songs and performers, but of course he knows how to say it bigger. "This is such an iconic show that highlights the hustle of hip-hop artists in the industry," said DJ Khaled. "It is a huge honor to be a part of a night that pays homage to some of the greatest talent of our generation."

DJ Khaled's 9 noms this year include DJ Of The Year, MVP Of The Year, Producer Of The Year, and a half dozen more to keep both him and all of us hip-hop fans in a genuine "we the best" mood. The BET Hip Hop Awards is set to air on Oct. 10.
