Bow Wow Coming for Tyler Perry's Spot at BET


Last year BET partnered with media mogul Tyler Perry to create exclusive content for their network and fledgling streaming channel [click here if you missed that]. 

Now rapper Bow Wow lobbying the network for Tyler's spot...

This week in a series of Tweets Bow Wow laid out his plans to revive the network claiming they 'lost the culture' by replacing the music with a 'bunch of sitcoms.'

What ghetto programming is he going to bring to the network? Take care of those sloppy multiple baby's and the mama's. Nobody wants to see you or your program suggestions.

He is reaching for a new career move. Bow knows his music has ended and nobody but losers' are checking for him. BLOOP

Lmao he must be high if he thinks, he can do better than TP, I haven't watched BET in years TP's movies are a hit or miss for me, I can't with the fake church/god inducing storylines. They need new fresh content other than the ole downtrodden black woman saving the black man, or vice versa with them finding god shit. Can we get a black Originals/Vampire Diary, or pick up Black Lightning, a black X men type drama or black Twilight Zone with get out type themes. Tyler's black ass need to come see me for a reading in Atlanta, I got plenty of creative idea's for his ass. Sit down bow wow and leave this to the professionals.

Bow Wow's ideas weren't novel, he just suggested to bring old shows back.

However, I'd love to see Nick Cannon in this position--I think he would be awesome in this role and would bring in fresh ideas for programming!

His ideas are not even fresh. He basically wants to bring back the past. The BET viewers been saying that. This is nothing new.

BET will continue to fail regardless of who's in charge, because black ppl do not respect each other in business, nor in corporate environments.

We're just too competitive, lazy, and entitled. Take Bow for instance. Here is a nigga that has never successfully created, built, or sustain anything of value in his entire life/career, yet, thinks he should be given an opportunity to run a network like BET? The man can't even sell an album, but he thinks he can create trends and content that will push our culture forward? The man cant even create content that the general public wants to buy smdh.

Also, another example, let's look at Diddy's network, Revolt, the man had to deal with a coup when his black employees tried to have the Indian woman CEO removed lol. And Diddy had to explain hiring an Indian to run his black owned network lol, but it was clear to me and every other competent black person why he knew he couldn't have a black CEO - we're not business minded. We get too emotional, too entitled, too lazy...too everything except being business minded. And that's why BET will continue to fail. We need proven leadership, proven ability to create successful content, and an ability to demonstrate teamwork and positive moral - not just in the interim, but in the culture. We just don't have enough creatives and business minded folks at BET. Like, in my mind, I'd fire everyone at BET and start from 0. I'd hire the best ppl. It doesn't matter if it's low level or C-level. Every employee will have something to contribute or a proven ability of contribution. We just need to stop carrying entitled dead weight just because they come from the right family (nepotism), or because they're attractive and come from the right school (classism). We need to focus on folks who have proven ability to do what needs to be done...

Bow is just more of the same shit currently occupying BET offices.

Daughter can barely run his own life so how's he gonna run an entire network? Good luck with that lil puppy.

BET needs to be banned. Ain’t shit worth value watching on there. Tyler Perry pretty much own BET with all his movies and trash ass tv shows. All his shows got gay ass black men pounding each other every damn scene two men are alone together. I’m good on EBT

@12:43 I felt that in my soul..As a professional that worked in these industries, I can cosign that A LOT of ppl be in postions that they bring nothin to except stunting the growth of the co. A lot of business decisions be made on trust rather than logic.
I too, thought WTF has Bow Wow ever wrote, produced or managed. Delusional ppl get caught up in the finished product & lie themselves like, i can do that....Lil fuk don't even have a podcast or youtube channel...Tryna pull a job outta thin air..LOL

@2:01

Exactly.

There was this IG post that had comments about blacks working under other black women and the comments were so bad (mainly against older black women) that they had to close the comments because too many complaints (black women). I found that so interesting that we couldn't even share our experiences while working for or under other blacks without complaints. So what does that say about us? That we can't use social media to air out our grievances about each other? That's another reason why we struggle working with each other in corporate America. Too many of us come from disadvantage backgrounds where they only know and see competitive negative energy amongst others who look like them. It's a weird projects-impoverish mentality smdh.

Lol Bow Wow is right about this 1 cause I used to watch BET all the time when it had music and entertainment shows now all it has on there are movies and more movies with a few shows(old shows),I hope they do bring back 106 and park and new updated music shows. BET needs help but don't think Bow Wow is the person 2 do it tho

@unknown you had the best comments on this post! Yes indeed, blacks will always be at the bottom of the totem pole no matter if they are homegrown or foreign. Bow Wow means well but I'm so tired of these rappers trying to speak for the black community as a whole...and what culture are we speaking about? Foundational black American culture or a culture where everybody brown and black are the same lol? Because unfortunately in America you can't identify with your lineage or you'll be considered "divisive." Lol.

But yeah as a race blacks are a huge disappointment.

BET could never be great because it is owned by Viacom. Decent bkack content doesn't fit their agenda.

Jared Kushner with all that's going on in the white house you took the time out to lecture to us black folks again. I guess you forget or didn't know that BET is owned by white folks (Viacom).
So take your lectures on over to Stormfront, and Breitbart they love your comments about black folks ain't shit, it's feeding frenzy for them.

Well....if THIS is the plan and it's from Bow Wow....R.I.P. BET....
