Bet Awards Nominate Lecrae For Best Gospel/Inspirational Artist Of 2016


For the second straight year, the BET
Awards nominated Lecrae for Best Gospel
Artist, which has rebranded as the Dr.
Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirational

Lecrae’s performance on his surprise
January mixtape, Church Clothes 3, likely earned him the honor.

“[Lecrae] gives us our messages in an
extremely relatable way,” the 2016 BET Awards said.

In 2015, Lecrae became the first rapper to win Best Gospel Artist at the BET Awards.
Kanye West was nominated for Best Gospel
Artist in 2005 but lost to Donnie McClurkin.

For Lecrae to win his second BET Award, he
must receive the nod over Anthony Brown
& Group Therapy, Erica Campbell, Kirk
Franklin, Tamela Mann and Tasha Cobbs.

“These nominees represent depth and
diversity in achievement over the past year
and we look forward to recognizing them
next month,” BET’s President of
Programming Stephen Hill said.

The 2016 BET Awards will air live at 8 p.m.
ET on Sunday, June 26.
