The BET Awards is one of the biggest night in Black Hollywood’s music history, held on Sunday, June 28, 2015 recording live at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. Starting Friday, June 26 the BET family extends to fans a variety of free events and entertainment leading up to the show called the BET Experience. I slipped in a few beauty suites in between servicing my clients for their press junkets and events. Knowing that I was going to be working all weekend, the dvr was set to tap all the pre-show, the show and after show shenanigans. Once I got home and settled in and pressed play, I was not ready for The Lyrical King of Hip Hop Artist Kendrick Lamar explosive intro performance (…and we gonna be alright) really put me in the patriot turn up mood. I felt like I could accomplish anything. Kendricks performance is first on my list of favorite show performances tonight followed by the Lil Kim popping up from the floor during the #BADBoyReunion and lastly the perfect harmony of love and hip hop displayed by Rapper Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj. The two were spitting bars back and forth making lyrically love on stage. Nicki black and white combo dress SLAYED to gawds! It’s very few wardrobe choices I like on extra curvaceous women and yaaassss honey this is one of those moments.
The BET Awards represents…authenticity of real music, he love of our culture and our music; It’s the biggest night in Black Hollywood.

The highlight of this night was Smokey Robinson receiving the Lifetime Achievement words; celebrating six decades of musical greatness. Known for creating the legendary Motown sound, Smokey has wrapped poetry into soul which has given the world several hits like ‘Ohh Baby Baby’ and ‘The Tears Of A Clown’. During Smokey Acceptance speech his words of wisdom hit home to both the young and seasoned artists.
You blessed me to apart of this wonderful world of music. You planted that musical seed in me. You gave me Barry Gordy to help cultivate and nurture that seed.
The road started way before you and end with you. So stop fooling yourself. Fans, I thank God for you, you help me live a life I love.
