Hip-hop star Cardi B is walk­ing into the 2019 BET Awards as the most nom­i­nated act with seven, while late rap­per Nipsey Hus­sle scored a post­hu­mous nom­i­na­tion.

She is also com­pet­ing for best fe­male hip-hop artist, the viewer’s choice award and al­bum of the year with her Grammy-win­ning ma­jor-la­bel de­but, “In­va­sion of Pri­vacy.”

Hus­sle, who was shot to death on March 31 in what po­lice said was a per­sonal dis­pute out­side his South Los An­ge­les cloth­ing store, picked up a best male hip-hop artist nom­i­na­tion. His com­pe­ti­tion in­cludes J. Cole, Travis Scott, Meek Mill, 21 Sav­age and Drake, who is be­hind Cardi B with five nom­i­na­tions.
