Rap sensation Kanye West leads the nominations for this year's (04) SOURCE AWARDS after landing seven nods last week (09SEP04).

The JESUS WALKS rapper, who is a favourite in the Newcomer of the Year category, has one more nomination than Ludacris and the combined members of G-Unit.

Soon-to-retire Jay-Z scored four nominations, and is a clear favourite to pick them all up at the Miami, Florida, prize-giving next month (OCT04).

Jay-Z is expected to take home gongs for Artist of the Year, Male Solo, Lyricist of the Year and Album of the Year.
