Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown lead BET Awards nominees with 6 each

brownminajNow we know who’s up for this June’s BET Awards. The network revealed all the nominees for this summer’s festivities, headlined by Nicki Minaj’s and Chris Brown’s six nominations each, the most of any artist. Beyoncé and Lil Wayne garnered four nods for second-most. Yonce and Minaj, the best of friends in the “Feeling Myself” music video, are competing in two different categories. The most fascinating category is the group one: five contemporary hip-hop acts…and then Jodeci.
