There has been a long running debate about who’s a "better rapper", Kendrick Lamar or J.Cole. Although we may never witness an actual rap battle between the two (hopefully we will), we’ll at least get a match up at this years BET Hip-Hop Awards.
J.Cole and Kendrick are nominated for three categories together including:
Hot Ticket Performer
Lyricist of the Year
Album of The Year = 4 Your Eyez Only and DAMN.
In addition to those categories Kendrick Lamar is also nominated for:
Best Hip-Hop Video = Humble
MVP of the Year
Single of the Year = Humble
Hustler of the Year
Impact Track = Humble
Impact Track = DNA
If we were choosing best rapper based on number of nominations, Kendrick would easily win 9 to 3. But there’s more to being best rapper than that. Who knows, maybe neither of them will win. Jay-Z, Drake and Chance the Rapper are nominated for Lyricist of the Year as well.
Tune in to the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 on October 10, 2017 at 8PM ET/PT to see how the battle plays out and who really is the best rapper.
