Kanye West isn’t known for staying under the radar.  The rapper is known for being flashy and outspoken, and whether you love or hate him one thing is for certain: you either love him, or you hate him!

I’ve been a Kanye fan since “Through the Wire”, so I was glad to hear Yeezy is up for 17 BET Hip Hop Awards this year!  Keep in mind, that’s WITHOUT releasing a solo album!  Ye’s 17 nominations include credits for features, production and performances, as well as for his Watch The Throne project with Jay-Z.  Personally, I think that he’ll win eight.  Fellow Def Jam rapper 2 Chainz cleaned up as well with 13 nominations going to the former Playaz Circle member, and Drake couldn’t be left out either, picking up 11.

The 2012 BET hip Hop Awards air on BET at 8pm Tuesday, October 9th.  I will be watching.   You can check out the full list of nominees here.
