ATLANTA _ Drake does it again. For the second straight year, the Canadian rapper tops nominees for the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

In a statement to The Associated Press, BET said Tuesday that Drake received 12 nominations for the 10th annual awards show. It airs Oct. 13.

Drake’s chart-topping “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” became the first platinum-selling album this year. He had 14 songs simultaneously placed on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, tying a record set by The Beatles in 1964.

Rap veteran Snoop Dogg returns for the third straight year as host of the show, which will be taped Oct. 9 at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center.

Big Sean earned 10 nominations and Nicki Minaj scored nine nods. Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole each got eight nominations.
