Drake leads BET Awards nominations

Rapper Drake has picked up eight nominations for this year's BET Awards.

The Canadian star took home four trophies last year (13), including the People's Champ Award - and this time he has the opportunity to double up.

His nominations include Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, MVP of the Year and Hustler of the Year, and he's also up for the People's Champ Award again.

Jay Z, Pharrell Williams and Future each scored six nominations, while Nicki Minaj, Rich Homie Quan and YG earned five nods apiece.

The award show, which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on 20 September (14), will be hosted by Snoop Dogg.
