Jay Z and Chance the Rapper are tied for the second most nominations with five each, while Future and Migos secured the third most nominations with four.

The 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards show will be taped on October 6, and airs on October 10 at 8 p.m. EST. The show chose not to film in Atlanta this year and opted for Miami at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater.

BET interim head of programming Connie Orlando released a statement about the show airing in Florida after the devastation Hurricane Irma dealt:

“While BET is extremely excited to bring the BET ‘Hip Hop Awards’ to Miami, Florida, we remain sensitive to the millions of victims affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with those who are facing the impact of this catastrophic storm. As a network, we are committed to offering our full support during this most devastating time. Through Hip Hop Awards 2017, our ‘Hip Hop for Hurricane Relief’ will bring together some of the biggest names in hip hop to acknowledge those in need as the country begins the difficult process of rebuilding.”
