Following their Grammys snub, A Tribe Called Quest is finally getting recognized.

READ: Q-Tip Is Heated Over a Tribe Called Quest’s Grammys Snub 

BET recently released its nominees for the 2018 BET Awards, and the influential hip-hop group has been nominated for the Best Group Award. They’ll be competing against Migos, N.E.R.D., Rae Sremmurd, and Chloe x Halle for the award.

Although A Tribe Called Quest’s last album, We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 The Service, was critically acclaimed, it didn’t receive any recognition from music award ceremonies, particularly the Grammy Awards. Q-Tip called out the Grammys for the snub several months ago.

“I’m sick of y’all fuckin’ Grammy n****, man. Y’all get us get out there to perform last year and close and shit, and y’all don’t get us no fucking nominations?”

Consequence and Ali Shaheed Muhammad elaborated on the snub a few months later on Sway’s Universe.

“Just to be honest with y’all, I thought we were going home with the statue,” Consequence said, emphasizing how Phife Dawg’s final work was featured on the album. “That was his last effort on Earth. I want you to understand the magnitude on that. What happens so many times with black people is that we come up with notions why other brothers and sisters shouldn’t be celebrated. Ain’t no notion for that shit. They fucked up.”

As for other BET Award nominees, DJ Khaled leads with six nominations including album of the year for Grateful and video of the year for “Wild Thoughts” which featured Rihanna and Bryson Tiller. Kendrick Lamar follows behind Khaled with five nominations. He’s also nominated for album of the year for Damn. and video of the year for “Humble.” The full list of nominees can be seen below.
