Oct 23, 2006 –

Cash Money superstar Lil Wayne pulled
down three
nominations for the First Annual BET Hip-Hop
Awards,
to be taped in Atlanta, GA on November
12, and air
on November 15. The first ever hip-hop awards
presented by the top rated network will pay homage
to hip-hop’s global impact with an evening of awards
and performances. The prolific Lil Wayne has
been
nominated for Hip-Hop CD of the Year for his
platinum-plus opus, Tha Carter
II, as well as
receiving nominations for Lyricist of the Year
and
Hip-Hop MVP of the Year.

The award nods come during a flurry of end-of the
year activity for the New Orleans native. His long
awaited duet album Like Father Like
Son with Cash
Money founder and mentor Birdman hits stores on
October 31. The duo is set to perform their
breakout single from the new album “Stuntin’ Like My
Daddy” during the awards ceremony. The song is
already garnering a crossover and urban radio
audience of close to 50 million listeners. In
addition, the song corralled over 30,000 ringtone
views/plays in the last week alone, and is the
#1
most played video on BET and #4 on 106 &
Park.

Lil Wayne is also enjoying success with the
crossover buzz-song of 2006 “Shooter,” from
Tha
Carter II. One of the most talked about
songs of
the year, the groundbreaking track features Robin
Thicke, and recently debuted in video form on
MTV’s
TRL and MTV2’s “Unleashed,” during which
the video
was played every hour on the hour. The song has
garnered Wayne critical acclaim from such
respected
outlets at The New York Times and the video has
become a fan favorite at MTV. The tireless hip-hop
star is also featured on Outkast’s next single,
“Hollywood Divorce,” from their
Idelwild CD. The
new song also guest stars Snoop Dogg, and the
superstars will be joining forces in a new video to
be shot sometime in the next few weeks.

The First Annual BET Hip-Hop Awards Show will be
hosted by comedian Katt Williams, and held at the
Fox Theater in Atlanta GA on
November 12. The show
is scheduled to air on BET on November
15 at 8:00pm EST.
