Master P Slams BET Awards Over Prodigy Tribute


Master P slams the BET Awards for waiting until Prodigy from Mobb Deep was dead before honoring him...


The Truth Hurts…BET Would Have Never Changed Their Show For Prodigy If He Was Still Alive!! It was a great thing acknowledging and celebrating the life of Prodigy and all of his accomplishments. But It’s a shame that none of these artists are told how great they are while they’re alive. Why can’t they get their flowers and tokens of appreciation while they’re still living? I know the truth hurts. I just have one serious question… Was Prodigy or Mobb Deep on BET’s radar last week… were they invited to the red carpet event, offered guest passes or an invite to perform at the awards show in the last 10 years? I’m willing to bet the answer is NO. I came to support my daughter today on the BET Experience stage but I decided that my family and I will not participate in the red carpet or awards events this year. I love my people and I support them but we really need to do better by each other. We lost a very talented brother, Prodigy. I send my condolences to his family. Hopefully, one day we can start appreciating the talented sisters and brothers while they are still alive. I know that what I am saying may ruffle a few feathers but the truth needed to be heard.

He has a lot of time on his hands since Lil Romey grew up. The man just died this week. Thank God they didn't wait til next year to acknowledge him.

No he's right. BET caters to whatever's poppin' at the moment. They weren't checking for Prodigy or Mobb Deep for that matter prior to his death.

Boy bye. New Edition was honored last night after 35 years in the game!!!!.... He's making an issue out of a non-issue. They honored Prodigy and that's all that matters.

They could have made provision for Lil Kim and Havoc to perform "Quiet Storm" the song fans are more familiar with or showed a montage of them performing. To walk on stage and mention his name wasn't enough for this God. Millennials may be unfamiliar with who he was, but lemme tell ya he is legendary. He was one of a kind, fierce, and a major unsung superstar much more talented and important than rapper Jay Z, in fact if you listen you will know that Jay took P's style.

Everything 8:26 said and a slow clap. Kids need to know that their "favorite" rappers flat out stole from earlier artists.

Not to take away from his message, because it's true, but look at how many talented artists there are. How can BET seriously make sure that every single person gets their props before they pass? This show comes on once a year...

^^^@9:52, They can simply do a tribute/acknowledgement segment EVERY year for the living legends. Maybe not an all out tribute like NE but just acknowledge the greats while they're still here. It could be a montage at the beginning or end of the show; something different from all the other shows like a living legend montage to close out. Something is better than nothing...

He obviously didn't see the award show b/c BET gave the Lifetime Achievement Award to New Edition, all 6 members and the dance coach are all still alive. P just mad that he ain't getting that award no time soon.

He just wants some attention. P wants them to award him next year. I never liked any of his songs. They sound like someone grunting on the toilet, and cant get it to come out.

If it took New Edition 35 years and they still here what was wrong with the honors from his friends that he got last night is he even buried yet? they all sounded genuinely choked up about losing him. Damn if Bobby was about to let to let New Edition tribute be cut down to make room for anybody.
