    I love stans. Believing eminem is the best in the game. He used to be good, but now he’s just rapping fast lyrics he probably didn’t even write, (see: royce da 5’9) and its MADD phoned in.

    The old man should have stopped at 30 years old like he said he was going to.

  • CapricornReligion aka My comment was on “Rapfix”

    @phenom Co-sign

    EXACTLY….

    What the Fuck is that about?

  • Soul_Assasin

    We all know who’s going to win best female hip hop artist.

    We all know a Tyler Perry movie is going to win the Best Movie award.

    Why is Beyonce in the R&B category when she M.I.A. last year?

    Why is J.cole in the best new artist? When he hasn’t drop an album yet?! (Mixtapes don’t count!)

    I think is time for Aaron Mcgruder to take over BET…

  • dude

    You know why em sells good? Because he’s a white rapper. Middle america is ok with rappers as long as they’re white, act white, or go pop.

  • SIREHI

    @phenom, they gotta have her on their, even in the 2010 list.. She’s just too black.. HA!

    Plus, Eminem has never been on their list, otherwise he would’ve swept every category..

  • James

    THEY SHOULD START AN UNDERGROUND AWARD!!

  • wickwickwack

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Its the 2011 “BET Predictable Awards”…Best Male Hip-Hop Artist? WTF ! Wheres EM? They need to have this award show on April 1st of every year. My motto about the BET award shows “Another black eye to the black community.”

  • still best rite now!!

    smh…talk about a Stretch (no video chick workout vid)

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

  • James

    HOW YOU GOING TO A FEMALE LIST WITHOUT PINKY THO?? LMAO

  • Fuck BET

    What the fuck? Really? This is why i haven’t watched ANY awards show pertaining to music since i was like………12.

  • Euros > Dollars

    BET is wack. I don’t understand why they nominate random artists that aren’t relevant. Its not even a black/white thing, its the fact they nominate artists or stars that honestly aren’t relevant at all. They could have put Lupe, or they could have put Wiz Khalifa on more then one nomination…They were both relevant this past year. I feel like BET just puts random artist to fill up the spots. We all already know who’s gonna win what.

    Question how is Lil Wayne best male hip-hop artist of the year? He spent most 2010 in jail meaning he aint do much, except drop that crap rock album, and that other album his label dropped while he was still in jail. This is bullshit, they could have put down Wiz or Lupe in his section, and I’m not even really a fan of either. Its the fact that if you mention relevant artist in 2010 and early 2011 they both come up before lil Wayne. How does one song (6’7′) qualify you for best hip-hop artist. When Lupe had a #1 album, and Wiz had a #1 single in the TOP 40 pop charts, not just rap charts.

  • ^

    THE SOUTH RUN THIS RAP SHIT!!! MMG AND YMCMB!!! FUCK THE HATERS!! OH YEAH SHOUTOUT YEEZY LOVE YOUR MUSIC!

  • Euros > Dollars

    BET dickrides artists to much cuz its always the same people every year nominated.

  • Citylivin’

    this is basically the “Twitter / Blog 2011 Awards”…..anybody that was hot off of twitter and these blog sites will win….sorry Bruno & Marsha…take your REAL talent to another award show.

  • ^

    LIL WAYNE BEST RAPPER ALIVE!!! DOPE ROCK ALBUM WHO ELSE TRY TO DO SOMETHING OUT OF THE BOX!!! IM NOT A HUMAN BEING HAD DOPE TRACKS TO!!!! GOAT!!!!!!!

  • I Was Not Here

    @ ^

    HOV & Linkin Park >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ___________ >>>>>>>>> Lil Wayne

  • My Name is Long and I understan but you need to mind yo own muhfuckin business before I bust a Cap!

    LOL THESE KIDS SAYING WAYNE IS THE GREATEST, AND PPL DICK RIDING THE SOUTH MUST BE REALLY FUCKING STUPID. (THE BAD STUPID, NOT THE GOOD KIND THAT RETARDS USE)
    SMFH.
    SOUTH IS DEAD, LITERALLY, NIGGA RAPPING LIKE FUCKIN ZOMBIES. WAYNE, GUCCI, WAKA, RICK ROSS, ETC.

    ~BK sucks hairy Balls!

  • I Was Not Here

    You guys complain about BET but look at Rap Radar. When they first posted this they had a plain picture just saying Bet Awards 2011 plain and simple. Then they dick ride these bafoons and put them on the picture just cuz they leading the noms. Guess what Rap Radar, THEY ARE NOT THE ONLY TWO PEOPLE IN THE DAMN AWARDS SO CHANGE THE DAMN PICTURE AGAIN

    ( i like chris brown but i’m not going to support dick riders **unless its about J. Cole** )

  • realtalk1

    FUK THE NORTH . EVRYBODY IN THE NORTH TRIES TO RAP LIKE THE SOUTH NOW BECAUSE RICK ROSS N LIL WAYNE IS KILLIN SHIT. AND WHY THE HELL SHOULD EMINEM GET NOMINATED???? HES NOT EVEN BLACK. AND HIS ALBUMS SUUUUCK. THE OOONLLY REASON PEOPLE LIKE EMINEM IS CAUSE HES WHITE N HE CAN RAP. I NEVER HEARD A HOT EMINEM MIXTAPE OR A SONG WHERE HE DOESNT TALK ABOUT HAILEY HIS BABYMOTHER OR HIS TRAILOR PARK MOMS OR KILLIN HIMSELF. THATS NOT HIPHOP.

  • I Was Not Here

    NOW THAT A BETTER FUCKING PICTURE !!!

    #COLEWORLD NIGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • SHAADYY

    how the fuck are Nas and Eminem snubbed?? Like seriously?

  • SHAADYY

    And to “realtalk1″, lets make something clear. Im sure u can find plenty of songs where Eminem isnt rapping about “HAILEY HIS BABYMOTHER OR HIS TRAILOR PARK MOMS OR KILLIN HIMSELF.”. So that alone proves that ur just a closed minded dumbfuck. Another thing, just because Eminem isnt black doesnt mean he should be snubbed, thats ignorant. Thats as ignorant as saying Black people dont belong in school because theyre place is the ghetto selling drugs. If they want to learn and want to learn, and if Eminem wants to rap, and is good at it (otherwise he wouldnt be as big as he is), then let him.
    But he was PIVOTAL for hip hop this year.
    Eminem does so much for hip hop, its unbelievable. Even if he IS white and even if it IS a huge base for his success, the ability is definitely there even on this day, and is still more relevant than alot of fuckin people. You can think all u want about Eminems discs, but if they really “SUUUCKED” believe me, he wouldnt be where hes at. Eminem > Vanilla Ice on any given day, pal, now pull your head out of your ass and just admit that it was stupid to snub em.

  • SHAADYY

    Ems Recovery mightve been sub par, wet trash, whatever u wanna call it. But since when it ISNT the norm nowadays to be wet trash with the bullshit thats getting a buzz?

  • jake

    i see niggers in the list

  • CK Smooth

    Wiz khalifa will win best new solely because hes a sell out

  • TheCool

    This is a fucking mess jajajajajaja. This shit just riding YM dick.

    Wayne on there? He hasnt done shit worth talking bout in ages.

    And if yu gon’ put Ross on there, where the fuck Lupe?

    Kanye is the only one that deserves to be on that list since My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasies. And if Drake is there, where the fuck is Em? TML, Recovery, and MBDTF came out around the same time. (same month I think).

    Best Hip Hop artist should be: B.o.B or Drake, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Eminem and Lupe Fiasco.

  • TheCool

    And yu know what else proves these fuck awards are worthless? Where the fuck is Nas and Damien for “Distant Relatives”?

  • TheCool

    No Nas, Em, or Lupe? WTF?

    If Cole doesn’t win beset new artist, and Kanye doesn’t win best hip hop artist, I lost faith in people. Fuck these awards.

  • johnny who

    is it me or does BET only like black celebrities..THEY ARE TRYING ALL THEIR BEST TO plan SLIM SHADY’S DOWN FALL.

  • http://yahoo.com Erjr

    I love BET but Chris Brown best actor, really. Also, Eminem sold 6 million records worldwide more than all the nominates for best hip-hop combine, rap circles around Lil wayne 3 times, and not nominated ok. Beyonce hasn’t release a album since I don’t know 2008 and she’s nominated ok. We all know what’s going to happen it’s going to be a Chris Brown and Lil Wayne night. Everybody knows BET love Cris Brown more than anything and they want him so badly to be the next Michael Jackson

  • JESSIE KNOWS BEST

    HERE’S MY LIST THAT SHOULD BE RIGHT

    Best Female RnB RIHANNA, KEISHA COLE, MARSHA, MONICA, KERI HILSON, JENNIFER HUDSON

    Best Male hip hop KANYE WEST, EMINEM, LUPE FIASCO, DRAKE, RICK ROSS

    Best female Hip Hop NICKI MINAJ, TRINA, DIAMOND, RASHEEDA, LOLA MONROE…ALL THESE GIRLS PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND/OR MIX TAPE LAST YEAR AND THIS YEAR

    WHO THE F**K IS CYMPHONIQUE, WHY WAKA FLOCKA IS NOT IN A NEW ARTIST CATERGORY? AND IF YOU HAVE BRUNO MARS YOU SHOULD HAVE EMINEM. WIZ KHALIFA HANDS DOWN WILL TEAR J. COLE OUT THE FRAME. BEYONCE AND WILLOW SMITH SHOULD NOT BE MENTIONED. ONE WAS M.I.A. FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS, AND THE OTHER JUST WHIPPED HER HAIR.
