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. Other nominees include Kanye West, Timbaland and Fetty Wap.
