Drake earns eight BET nominations

For the first time, Drake tops nominees for this year's BET Hip-Hop Awards.

In a statement, BET said Drake had received eight nominations for the ninth annual awards show, which airs on October 14.

Last year, the Canadian rapper and singer took home four awards, including the People's Champ Award.

Drake's 2013 chart-topping album, Nothing Was The Same had several hits from Hold On, We're Going Home with Majid Jordan to Started From The Bottom.

Rap veteran Snoop Dogg returns as host and is expected to perform during the show, which will be taped on September 20 at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Centre.

Jay Z, Pharrell and Future each scored six nominations. Nicki Minaj, Rich Homie Quan and YG earned five nods apiece.
