Kanye West leads the way in the nominations category with seven at this year's BET Awards, an impressive list of nods that includes two for music video of the year. West is nominated for his videos "N---as in Paris" and "Otis."
Beyoncé came in second in terms of nominations by notching six nominations, while husband Jay-Z earned himself five noms. Big Sean was excited about his three nominations, including his look in the Best Male Hip Hop Artist category, where he will square off against Drake, J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Young Jeezy.
"It's perfect. My grandma gonna be watchin', my mom, my family, the whole city," Sean told MTV News. "It's just tight that I can represent those people, everybody who had that dream, everybody who used to ride to school [listening to] their idols, now I'm with them. It's just tight that I can show people that it's possible."
