It's that time of the year again, and the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards are on deck. Today (Sept. 9), the official nominees were announced, with Cardi B, Lil Durk and Megan Thee Stallion leading the pack with 9 nominations each.

The 16th annual 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards will be taped on Friday, October 1 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, GA, on Friday, October 1, but it will premiere on the network on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, at 9 PM ET/PT. And if you're in Africa, it will be simulcast internationally on BET Africa on Wednesday, October 6 AT 3 AM CAT.

The 'Hip Hop Album of the Year' category will be highly contested with Moneybagg Yo, Tyler, The Creator, Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, DJ Khaled, J. Cole and team up of 21 Savage & Metro Boomin all getting nominations.  The 'Hip Hop Artist of the Year' category is also stacked with Cardi B, Drake, J. Cole, Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion and Tyler, the Creator. Last year, Lil Baby taking an L had Twitter vexed.

Cardi and Megan's other nods all include 'Song of The Year,' 'Best Hip Hop Video,' 'Best Collaboration,' 'Best Live Performer,' 'Hustler of The Year,' and 'Sweet 16: Best featured Verse,' while the latter has a 'Lyricist of the Year' nomination. Lil Durk's nominations also include 'Song of the Year,' 'Best Hip Hop Video,' 'Best Collaboration,' 'Best Duo or Group,' and 'Sweet 16: Best featured Verse.'

Despite Drake only just releasing his new album, Certified Lover Boy, he managed to land 8 nominations, including 'Lyricist of the Year.' That aforementioned category is the source of Nas' sole nomination.
