    Drake has a reason to celebrate. Eight reasons, actually. The Canadian rapper and YMCMB crown prince has nabbed eight 2014 BET Hip-Hop Awards nominations.

    Drizzy was nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, MVP of the Year, Album of the Year, Hustler of the Year, Sweet 16: Best Featured Verse and the People's Champ Award.

    Jay-Z, Future and Pharrell Williams notched six noms a piece. Nicki Minaj grabbed four noms.

    The I Am Hip Hop Award, which recognizes someone who has had a huge effect on both rap music and culture throughout the years, will be handed out, as well.

    Snoop Dogg will host the ceremony, saying, "I'm looking forward to returning to host the BET Hip-Hop Awards after the success of last year's show. This year we are coming back with a bigger and better show, packed with surprises for everyone. You don't want to miss it, ya hear me?"

    Got it, Snoop Dizzle. Snoop d-o-double-g.

    The show is not live. It will be taped on Saturday, September 20 at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta and will air on Tuesday, October 14 at 8PM ET.

    So set a DVR now, bitches.

    Will you tune in?
