AJ Tracey, Pa Salieu and Headie One lead this year’s GRM Daily Rated Awards, with four nominations apiece.

Headie and Tracey are both up for best male artist and album of the year, for Edna and Flu Game respectively.

Jorja Smith, Enny, Little Simz, Lady Leshurr and Stefflon Don are among the nominees for best female artist.

Multiple nominee Salieu recently denied violent disorder charges and is now on conditional bail. He will appear in court again in January.

The UK rap and grime awards, now in their sixth year, will be presented at a virtual ceremony on 16 September.

The nominations are decided by the team at GRM Daily, the platform that founded the awards, while the winners are voted for by the public.

Other best album contenders include Bugzy Malone (for The Resurrection), Nines (Crabs in a Bucket) and Slowthai (Tyron), who is also up for video of the year for Cancelled, his track with Skepta.

Little Simz is nominated in the same category for Introvert.

Enny is recognised in the breakthrough of the year category, alongside Salieu, the BBC Sound of 2021 winner.

Stormzy is up for two awards – track of the year, alongside Headie One and AJ Tracey for Ain’t It Different, and best video, where he features on Ghetts’ Skengman Mode.
