The nominations for the 2013 Soul Train Awards are in!

Kendrick Lamar leads the packs with 6 noms. The show will be hosted by Anthony Anderson, I would prefer Cedric The Entertainer, but we will see how Anderson does.

The show will air on EBT(BET)and Centric on December 1. I will definitely be front and center providing commentary like only I can! I will also be providing a re-cap after the show airs.
