West has received nine nominations for the fourth annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, which will be televised October 27. The rapper caused a stir Sunday after he interrupted 19-year-old country singer Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The 32-year-old West’s latest album, 808 & Heartbreak, has sold over a million copies.

Jay-Z and Lil Wayne drew the second-most nominations with seven apiece, while T received six nods.

The network will also recognise veteran rapper Ice Cube with the “I Am Hip-Hop” icon award. The show will be hosted by comedian Mike Epps.
