Have You Seen ‘The Booth’ Freestyles At The 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards? (Video)

Well, well. I think I am ready to say it… Even with Preemo and Bella Badu on the 1’s and 2’s, I liked the overall energy of ‘The Booth’ over the Cyphers this year. Not saying there were not some hella fire freestyles in the Cyphers, but this looked fun!

Got bars? T.I., Shiggy, Safaree, Nick Grant, Christian Combs and more proved they did in The Booth at the Hip-Hop Awards. Hosted by Big Tigger.

Did You Watch The 2018 BET Cyphers? Do It Now, And Again, Right Here (Video)

A good look for BET: posting these to YouTube without that forced auto-play turned on. Now you can watch them in turn… enjoy, critique, hate on… whatever you do when you watch. Pretty dope overall. Wasn’t hyped in the weeks building up to them this year. Might be a good thing. The heads will check for the Cyphers. The rest who have to be ‘marketed’ to; we don’t need ’em.

Watch Curren$y “Rate The Bars” (Video)

Ohhhh! Shout to BET for throwing the Na’Tee verse from her Cypher at dude for the review. Respek on Curren$y’s name for his evaluation of these barz!

Curren$y came into Rate the Bars of some great rappers. Giving huge props to B.G., Tyga, Wiz, and the late Mac Miller who he collab’d with.

(Realizing how old AND how much of a Sci-Fi GEEK I am, getting that ‘C3PO’ reference from the Mac Miller (RIP) verse right off… not even thinking it all the way through like Curren$y did. Hahaaa!)

Watch Onyx “Rate The Bars” (Video)

Ha! That’s why they evaluate these bars without being told who spit them. Honest appraisals of the lyricals. And these Onyx cats are HARD on the bars!

Sticky Fingaz and Fredro Starr from Onyx came in to rate some bars. They also rated themselves a much deserved 5.

Comedy: Which Does 50 Cent Like More, The Cast Of ’50 Central’ Or The Cast Of ‘Power’? (Video)

Is this really a question? The answer is so obvious… Naturi Naughton! ‘Tasha’ is DEFINITELY the winner… of everything (wow)!

The cast of “Power” asks 50 Cent if they’re better than the cast of “50 Central.”

The Story Of How Models Helped Hip-Hop Stars Make Videos That Made Money… Until The Game Changed (Trailer)

VIXEN. Simple, powerful title. Makes sense with coverage of Karrine Steffans (and her book) in this.

Saw this described elsewhere as exploring the ‘Video Vixen Era.’ Never thought of it as an era, but the MODELS (not the rappers or singers) in music videos that caught major buzz before Instagram… yeah, that’s a thing. Should make for some worthwhile watching. That, plus sexy women…

Melyssa Ford, Buffie The Body, Karrine Steffans and more video vixens write themselves back into Hip-Hop history in this BET Original Documentary.

Comedy: Keep It Lit. Hit Her With The ‘Henny D**k’ (Video)

Is there such a thing as ‘too far’ when it comes to 50 Central going for the funny? I’m asking…

Vince Swann tries out the next craze in helping his member stay lit.

Harder than Black Panther’s armor. Yeah, she finna get it!

50 Central Needs These Actors To Be A Little More ‘Urban’ At Their Auditions (Video)

So right, but so wrong. Hahaaa!

I will admit to being a little uncomfortable, so I know the actors were when they got the Black card slammed down on them at the audition all of a sudden. Ole girl reeeeally drew it out for effect and let them sweat before letting them in on the joke.

Now, what would happen if you went to an audition & they told you to be ‘more Urban?’

Nick Fraser Speaks On The Good & Bad That Came From His “Why You Always Lyin” Going Viral (Video)

Remember that “Why You Always Lyin” that Nick Fraser went viral with? I remember thinking: “I wonder if kids listening/watching this even know who RL and Next are?” Ha!

Remixing Next’s “Too Close” on Vine got him more than he bargained for.

Should we add a category for Internet celebrities called ‘ceWEBrity’ (like Tosh.0 does on Comedy Central)?

Watch CyHi The Prynce “Rate The Bars” (Video)

CyHi said Black Thought was ‘on his level’ and rated him 5 out of 5. The Prynce gave his own bars a 20, by the way. Said Kanye’s bars were ‘god level’ and was impressed with Vic Mensa. Cool.

Nipsey Hussle Stays True To Himself, Even If It Means Being ‘Uncomfortable’ (Video)

You get the furthest being authentic…

And that’s that if you ask Nip Hussle. While he kinda went with the temp of the room (e.g. the rest of the guys declaring that your ‘approach’ should fit the circumstances), Nipsey did hold to the ‘no code-switching’ mode. Gotta believe that being Hussle made him a boss. Why would he change his persona for anyone, in any situation? Respect.

The rapper chats with the men of “BET’s Mancave” about being uncomfortable.

Watch Redman “Rate The Bars” Of Some Of The Hottest Emcees (Video)

Okay, I will ‘disclaim’ it before B-E-T or even R-E-D can… all these spitters were not the hotness. But once again, there will be some moments where fave rappers’ rhymes get downgraded while otherwise mid-level wordsmiths’ rhymes get some shine.

Of course, he gave his own bars 5 out of 5 #JustSaying #NotMadTho

T.I. Is Not Really Impressed With The Bars He’s Rating (Video)

Wait. He ranked Iggy’s bars higher than WHOSE???? Okay, let that breathe. But besides that, it seems to take a lot (a WHOLE lot) to impress T.I. when it comes to lyricism. Downrating some of everyone from his artists to Tupac to himself. Wowwww!

Yung Joc Hosts “Plates And Poles.” Watch Episode 1 Now (Video)

It goes down like THAT at the strip club… like shrimp & salmon with mac & cheese? Like THAT??? Apparently so in Atlanta. And Yung Joc is going to kick off this “Plates And Poles” series and bring you the real deal full meal on it.

Man, you’ll be ogling what Chef Kelz puts on them plates about as much as you’d be ogling the ‘shoe models’ at The Blue Flame. Hahaaa!

Black Love: Flex Alexander & Shanice (Video)

So adorable I can hardly stand it. Like right up there with Papoosa & Remy Ma’s tried and true lovey-dovey love. In theirs and in Flex Alexander & Shanice’s cases, I am drooling at how hot the ladies are but cannot hate on their dudes… and thus, I end up rooting for their relationships. There is hope and happiness; because there is Black Love. A couple like this proves it! Through thick and thin and thick again. Watch Flex’Nice talk about it.
