Author: AkooEditor  //  Category: TI News


TI and Beyonce lead nominations for BET Awards with five nominations each. Nominated for two awards for Best Collaboration – with Rihanna on “Live Your Life” and with Young Dro and Yung LA on “Ain’t I”, male hip hop artist , viewer’s choice award and video of the year, TI is surely the name we’ll hear all night at the 2009 BET Awards. Sadly enough, TI won’t be attending the event as he will be away in the clinker. We hope Jamie Foxx will deliver a great show.
