Yesterday (September 22), the BET network confirmed that Hip Hop superstar and media mogul Snoop Dogg will host the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards. The event will premiere on October 15 at 8pm EST. Snoop follows another artist, T-Pain, who hosted along with Mike Epps and Katt Williams.

Last year’s awards featured a Chris Lighty tribute, Fat Joe and 50 Cent appearing together for the first time since their early 2000s beef, and a notable altercation in the awards parking lot between members of G-Unit and Maybach Music Group.

With the announcement of the veteran Long Beach, California host, BET runveiled the nominees for awards this year. An artist endorsed by Snoop, Kendrick Lamar, leads with 14 overall nominations:
