Call this the year of Drake, between his album and his collaborations, Drake is up for 12 nominations at the 2013 BET Awards. Newcomer Kendrick Lamar follows with eight nods, along with 2 Chainz. The nominees were announced today during a special episode of 106 & Park featuring Elle Varner and A$AP Rocky as guest-hosts. Speaking of A$AP Rocky, he is up for five nods, and Elle Varner, a rookie last year, is up for Best Female Artist.
