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….

After a long 14 year run full highs, lows and everything in between, 106 & Park aired the final episode on Friday evening. All personalities who have hosted the show over the years came back for the occasion including AJ, Free, Paigion, Miss Mykie, Shorty da Prince, Terrance J, Rocsi, Julissa, Big Tigger, Bow Wow and Kesia Chante. Many people grew up on 106 & Park and fell in love with the energy of the daily countdown program. Throughout the show, pre-recorded farewells were played from Ashanti, Common, Ne-yo, and Big Sean. Special guests Wale and Keyshia Cole shared special memories with hosts AJ and Free. BET has made plans to make 106 & Park solely digital programming but also bringing specials for BET events such as New Year’s Notarized Countdown. It is very sad to see such and amazing and prominent entertainment show go and thanks to BET for such an innovative program that brought hip-hop so many memories. Enjoy highlights from the final episode below.
After an amazing 14 year run as the go to show for all of the latest hip-hop, r&b, and pop music videos, 106 & Park will finally come to an end. Over the past few years, there have been an exchange of hosts for the show and it became evident that the show was struggling to stay in the ratings. President Stephen Hill says that the show is not completely ending, but will instead exist through many live events and specials. BET released a statement sharing how the show will now transform digitally and reminisced on a few of the best moments throughout the years:
AJ accepting Janet Jackson’s challenge to…dance. Bow Wow laying that kiss on Tyra Banks (or was it the other way around?). Free crawling around the set LIKE Catwoman WITH Catwoman Halle Berry. Julissa’s taking over Halloween as “Wonder Woman”. Keshia brilliantly bonding with First Lady Michelle Obama. Paigion flying around the world with Rihanna on a 777. Rocsi salsa dancing with Victor Cruz and putting him to shame. Shorty and Ms. Mykie’s killer rap “The History of Justin Timberlake”, visably thrilling JT himself. Terrence on the beat boxing while Jamie Foxx rhymed. Tigger making Tom Cruise do the of-the-moment “motorcycle dance”.
It’s been a great 14 year run as America’s top music/variety show on cable. And now that very valuable brand is going to take its talents to the digital realm. The interactive brand you helped build, 106 & Park, is alive and well…and it’s moving to the space in which our audience NOW interacts with music the most; online. It’ll be very exciting to connect with the millions of people that are already engaged with 106 & Park and other BET digital and social media entities and bring content that will further evolve the 106 & Park brand…and enhance the overall BET Networks brand. As we transition to the digital space, we look to continue 106 & Park’s role as both a leader of and a mirror to youth culture. We’ll have more information to share about how that is to roll out very soon.
The final airing of 106 & Park will be on December 19, 2014.
The leader of The St. Lunatics is finally getting his own reality show to share how he balances living a superstar lifestyle with being the ultimate family man.
