Before i start let me say that this is my post, my opinion and if you do not like what i have to say, get your own platform! Now that that is out the way……Ok BET, what happened to the red carpet event? I honestly look forward to that every year.
Overall, i enjoyed the awards and i think it was a great idea to bring some old and new artists for the cyphers. More cyphers than usual, BUT ima hip hop head so it’s cool. I expected Khaled to scream through the entire show but he didn’t and for that HE THE BEST! Not enough awards were given out..what happened to best collab, best video, best producer so on and so forth? I also would have like to see Rae Sremmurd perform but hey, there is always next year and i hope to be able to attend one of them very soon 😀
I see where they were going with the whole show by introducing us to a lot of new artists whose names have been buzzin’ thru the streets, but people were unsure of who they were. The awards were also about letting us know how powerful we were in the midst of all this police brutality, drug use and abuse, respecting ourselves and the importance of voting. Which in my opinion, honestly, do not matter because they both have their own agendas and don’t care about our communities and our youth. The US is in a tight situation with this election. I don’t trust any politician but just make sure that before you go off of the words of how other people feel, do your own research and build your knowledge from there. We can’t expect anyone to save us, we gotta save ourselves and change the world, build businesses and invest back into our own communities. BET will show awards 25,352 times over the next week so make sure you tune in if you missed it! AITE….

For the old heads, Betty Wright was definitely a highlight and she killed it.. minus the second high note but hey…that Ms. Wright so she gets a Major pass lol
Lil Yachty….i was shocked that people in the audience knew the words… and then here comes D.RA.M. with a poodle… really? O.O dont get it confused, i actually took a listen to his earlier tapes and was impressed with his ballots. But what you see on stage is just for show, im convinced lol. He actually has a sound that i could maaaaybe get used to.
Big K.R.I.T. -Very Powerful Young Black Brother, use your words to make aware and teach!! Artists like this don’t get the shine they deserve because they not talking about bad bishes and molly. Come on Black people, take our voice back!
