Lil Uzi Vert is feeling some type of way about this year’s BET Awards nominations.
On Monday (June 15), BET announced the nominees for the 2020 awards show ahead of its June 28 premiere. Despite finally releasing his highly-anticipated No. 1 album Eternal Atake this year as well as a deluxe edition, Uzi’s name wasn’t on the list. In a series of tweets, the Philly native chocked it up to being different than his rap peers.
“Y’all see how they do ya boy,” he tweeted. “Its because I don’t follow the Rules of HipHop. Its boring.”
Upon Eternal Atake‘s release in March, the album held the No. 1 spot two weeks in a row, while every song debuted on the Billboard 200.
Nominees for the Best Male Hip Hop Artist category this year include DaBaby, Drake, Future, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch and Travis Scott. As for the Album of the Year, it’s between Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You, Megan Thee Stallion’s Fever, Beyoncé’s Homecoming: The Live Album, H.E.R.’s I Used To Know Her, DaBaby’s Kirk and Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
