DaBaby Reacts to Losing All 12 Nominations at BET Hip Hop Awards
DaBaby is not a sore loser.
The “Rockstar” rapper went into Tuesday’s BET Hip Hop Awards with 12 nominations, the most of any artist, but he went home with none.
Despite taking an L in all his nominated categories, DaBaby is not losing sleep. In response to a post on The Shade Room, he said he doesn’t hold any ill will and even congratulated the winners.
“ion think Baby trippin,” he commented. “@bet love Baby, congrats to the winners. #WellDeserved.”
Baby, who was nominated in top categories including Lyricist of the Year and Hip Hop Artist of the Year, performed at last year’s Hip Hop Awards and also won Best New Hip Hop Artist. Over the summer, he took home Best Male Hip Hop Artist at the 2020 BET Awards.
Megan Thee Stallion was the big winner at Tuesday’s ceremony with three wins including Hustler of the Year, Hip Hop Artist of the Year, and Best Collaboration for her “Savage (Remix)” with Beyoncé. Queen Bey also took home a second win for Sweet 16: Best Featured Verse for the collaboration. Roddy Ricch scored a pair of wins for Song of the Year and Album of the Year.
