Well, make of that what you will but definitely got a few issues. Chris Brown has given R’n’B and Hip Hop constant sauce throughout the year and y’all cannot deny the fire he brought. DJ Khaled, has made this year his b*tch and dropped hit after hit, ‘Major Key’ the Album won a Grammy, Billboard Award but gets no recognition from BET??? He features all these artists on there and there still aint no collab nomination. C’mon BET!!!

 

Of course we will be watching the show due to air on June 25th. Stay tuned from more of our opinions and share yours with us!!!
