Today, the 19th Annual MTV European Music Awards were held at Festhalle in Frankfurt, Germany. Young Money’s Nicki Minaj and Drake were both nominated in the “Best Hip-Hop” category, but it was the Barbie who won the battle between them.
Due to attending the auditions for American Idol in San Antonio this morning, Nicki Minaj could not make it to the show to pick up her award.
Here is another preview of Nicki Minaj’s upcoming “Nicki Minaj: My Truth” E! Special that shows never before seen footage from her personal and professional life. The first episode of Nicki‘s three-part reality show will be airing tonight on E! at 10PM EST.
In other Nicki Minaj news, she won an award for “Best International Act” at the 17th Annual Music Of Black Origin Awards on November 3rd, which took place at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. Congrats to the Young Money Barbie!
Last night, the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards aired on TV after they were pre-taped on September 29th at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Georgia.
Only Lil Chuckee from Young Money attended the awards show, but Drake did win 2 awards out of his 11 nominations for “HYFR (Hell Ya Fuckin’ Right)” with Lil Wayne in the “Best Hip-Hop Video” category and “No Lie” with 2 Chainz in the “People’s Champ Award” category.
Unfortunately, Nicki Minaj didn’t win her nomination in the “Made You Look Award (Best Hip-Hop Style)” category and Tyga didn’t win any awards for his verse on “The Motto“.
Unlucky to both Nicki and T-Raww, but a congratulations goes to Drizzy! Click here to watch Lil Chuckee take part in one of the cyphers.
