West Lands Nine BET Nominations

Sep 18, 2009 | 4:06am EDT

Kanye West has bounced back from his stage-invading controversy at the MTV Video Music Awards by landing nine nominations for the upcoming BET Hip-Hop Awards.

The rapper might not be everyone's favorite hitmaker after wrecking Taylor Swift's big night on Sunday -- but cable network BET still loves him.

He leads all nominations for the Oct. 27 ceremony. 

Jay-Z and Lil Wayne have seven nods apiece, while an incarcerated T.I. has received six. 

Ice Cube will be honored at the event -- he'll pick up the I Am Hip-Hop icon award.
