20 Questions Regarding The 2011 BET Awards Nominations

By | 34 Comments

<a href="http://www.bet.com/shows/bet-awards/2011.html"> The national Black family reunion and fish fry known as the BET Awards announced the 2011 nominations yesterday on 106 & Park. Awards shows generally honor the best of the best, yet I'm left with a handful of questions after scanning the list of nominees. 1. Chris Brown received several nominations. Has the blacklisting been completely lifted now? 2. J. Cole gets nominated for "Best New Artist"...but hasn't dropped an album yet? *Scratches head* 3. Neo-Soul is now called "Centric"? Is this the last stop off for artists before they do gospel plays and Tyler Perry movies? 4. Cee-Lo Green is now R&B music? Is this an omen that he will soon be co-starring alongside Christopher Williams and Al B. Sure in the acclaimed stage play "Momma, A Good Thug Is Hard To Find"? 5. Are those really the five best groups Hip-Hop produced last year? 6. Lola Monroe makes music and we're taking her seriously? 7. Why don't they just call "Best Female Hip-Hop Category" "Nicki Minaj And Four Other Losers With Vaginas"? 8. Can you deny any of the songs listed in the "Best Collaboration" category? 9. Does Usher have to actually put out new music anymore the get nominated or is it just a lifetime lock? 10. If Willow Smith doesn't win "Video Of The Year," would it be due to age discrimination? If she does win, will it be the result of nepotism? 11. If I say I don't give a flying f*ck about the Gospel nominees, doth Hell await me? 12. Tyler Perry and Waka Flocka will be in the same building...is the awards show taking place on <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_end_times_prediction">May 21st</a>.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/food-for-thought-conversations-with-ice-cube-on-bet"> A few weeks ago, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/ice-cube-feat-flavor-flav-im-only-out-for-one-thing">a random appearance of an Ice Cube track</a> brought a revitalized euphoria in many longtime fans but also shed light on the fact that since the explosion of online media, O'Shea Jackson has become less known for his musical achievements and more for his Hollywood endeavors.

Freestyle Friday Participant Channels The Spirit Of Nicki Minaj

By | 29 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/diddy-is-the-new-manager-of-nicki-minaj-and-rick-ross"> Say what you want about Nicki Minaj, but she's already making her presence felt across the globe. You see all her Harajuku Barbies littered across cyberspace and assume she's just an Internet phenomenon. Having gone out a few nights ago & being surrounded by a crowd much younger than anticipated, there were so many Nicki look-a-likes walking around the club you would've thought she'd been running rap for years. Blame it on the lack of visible female emcees or whatever, but she's got a hold on a generation. And that hold goes beyond style. There's a good chance that any young girl with Rap aspirations will look to her when crafting her skills. Shoot, you don't have to search any further than <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/106-park">106 & Parks'</a> First All Female Freestyle Friday to see the process already in works.
