I'm looking forward to seeing this story.

Say what you may about BET. When it comes to bio's, they always hit the mark. Lifetime, should take note.

Of the nine talented artists listed, only one had significant mainstream success (Mary) while the intern went on to become a multi-millionaire. How about them apples?

12:14pm must be a teenager and a hater. Uptown had some of the best music and biggest artists out. Black excellence.

Whew, thank God it's BET and not TV One!!! BET gave us The New Edition story and I know they'll do right by this story, which I'm so anxious to see. Can't wait.

This will be good, looking forward to this. Mary the (QUEEN) has outlasted everyone that was on that label.

12:19, It's about to be 2020 (see what I did there?). Learn how to read and expand your vocabulary. Hate is a very played out and lame word. I actually love all of Heavy's music (Black Coffee, Got Me Waiting {slow version} and Nutin' but Love is my jamz), and I keep Let's Chill in rotation. Now what?

12:36, I didn't say anything about Uptown not being the shit. I specifically said the artists were talented and merely commented on how Mary was the only one who made it really big while Puffy became super rich. What did I get wrong with that statement ma'am?

Folks really need to stop jumping to conclusions so fast just to be contentious.

ms mac said...

Since reading comprehension isn't as fundamental as I'd like to think it is, my original comment is an indictment against PUFFY, not the Uptown artists who didn't make it as big as he did financially.

Damn shame I really gotta explain that ...

I'll support this only because Andre liked and complimented my artwork on Instagram. Otherwise, I avoid everything BET.

I know one story that won't be told in that film. The one time the assistant caught Diddy giving Andre oral and Andre gave her a new mercedes to keep quiet about it. Too bad she got tipsy at the club one night and her lips got loose. Don't believe me? Ask Holly Hood.

Andre Harrell is not going to tell the real (gay) story so why bother. I'll pass.
