Published

on

Lil Wayne will perform on the 2022 BET Awards, the network announced Thursday (June 23). Lil Wayne is an 11-time winner at the BET Awards, including five awards in the viewer’s choice category. He is also a five-time Grammy winner.

The show, hosted by Taraji P. Henson for the second year in a row, will air live on BET on Sunday, June 26, at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Sean “Diddy” Combs is this year’s lifetime achievement award recipient. Combs will take the stage for a star-studded tribute performance, which will feature Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Nas, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, The Lox, Bryson Tiller, Faith Evans and The Maverick City Choir. The performance will be a retrospective of Diddy’s musical legacy as a producer and artist.

Several of this year’s performers have won BET Awards in recent years, including Lizzo, who won best female R&B/pop artist two years ago; Givēon, who won best new artist last year; Roddy Ricch, who won best new artist and album of the year two years ago; Chance the Rapper, who won best new artist five years ago; and Kirk Franklin, who is a five-time winner (including the last two years) for best gospel/inspirational artist.

This will be the third year in a row that Ricch has performed on the show; the second year in a row that Franklin has performed.

Chlöe, a three-time nominee this year, is also set to perform. Other performers include LattoJack HarlowBabyfaceDoechiiElla MaiFireboy DMLJoey Bada$$Maverick City Music, and Muni Long.

In addition to performing on the show, Harlow is a nominee for best male hip-hop artist. Lil Nas X, Harlow’s partner on the smash hit “Industry Baby,” wasn’t nominated in that category (or any other). LNX loudly protested the snub, which many observers with no self-interest also found hard to understand.

Up-and-coming artists GoGo Marrow and OGI will perform on the BET Amplified Stage. Last year, Tone Stith and Mereba performed on that stage, which BET sees as a launching pad.

Idris Elba, a two-time BET winner for best actor, will serve as a presenter. So will Daniel Kaluuya, who won an Oscar for best supporting actor two years ago for playing Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.

MC Lyte returns as the ceremony’s announcer. DJ Diamond Kuts returns as the house DJ.

BET will kick off the celebration with BET Awards ’22: Red Carpet Live! on Sunday starting at 6 p.m. ET/PT. Hosted by Terrence J, the pre-show will include performances by Capella Grey, Fast Life Yungstaz, Juvenile, Pheelz, Saucy Santana, and Victoria Monet. The pre-show will feature red carpet correspondent Pretty Vee, DJ Jae Murphy, and more. Affion Crockett will host the BET Awards red carpet Twitter live stream show.

Of the 14 artists who received three or more BET Awards nominations this year, Chlöe is the only one who has been announced as a performer.

Doja Cat is this year’s top nominee with six nods. Doja is this year’s only artist, male or female, to be nominated in both R&B/pop and hip-hop categories, a sign of her broad-based appeal. Ari Lennox and Drake are runners-up, with four nods each.

Baby KeemSilk Sonic, Chlöe, FutureH.E.R.Jazmine SullivanYe (formerly Kanye West), Kendrick LamarLil BabyMary J. Blige and Tems each received three nominations.

The BET Awards is among the most-watched awards shows on cable television. BET calls the awards, now in their 22nd year, “the ultimate platform to showcase the best, brightest, and most beautiful aspects of the Black experience – celebrating Black music’s present and future, and elevating the culture and being a driving force for social change.”

Connie Orlando, BET’s executive vice president, specials, music programming, music strategy, and news will oversee the annual show, along with Jamal Noisette, VP, specials, music programming & music strategy, who will serve as co-executive producer for BET. Jesse Collins Entertainment is the production company for the show with Collins, Dionne Harmon, and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay serving as executive producers.

The BET Awards 2022 will simulcast on BET, BET Her, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV, MTV2, Pop, TV Land, and VH1. Internationally, the show will simulcast on BET Africa, BET France and will be available to watch on My5 and Sky On-Demand in the UK, as well as BET Pluto in the UK and Brazil.

Drake, Lil Wayne, & Nicki Minaj Reunite At Young Money Concert

Published

on

YMCMB forever.

Five days after it was delayed due to Drake catching COVID, the long-awaited Young Money reunion went down on Saturday at Budweiser Stage in Toronto. The concert, which was part of Drake’s OVO Fest, was a celebration of the Young Money era that ruled hip-hop through the late 2000s and early 2010s.

Things got off to a slow start. An hour-and-a-half after the show was supposed to start, a message appeared on screen: “Unfortunately, Lil Wayne had issues at the border.”

It was followed by another message: “Luckily, Drake runs the border.”

Fans erupted with cheers as Weezy emerged to 2010’s “Blunt Blowin” before launching into hits including “Mrs. Officer,” “Rich as F***,” and “Loyal.”

“People at the border, I love you,” Wayne said before capping off his 30-minute set with “A Milli.”

Young Money’s First Lady, Nicki Minaj, was up next. Rocking long pink hair and holding a green Louis Vuitton purse, the rap queen ran through hits like “Beez in the Trap,” “Chun-Li,” and “Super Bass.”

Drizzy then delivered his solo set, including tracks off his latest album, Honestly, Nevermind, closing with “Sticky,” “Way 2 Sexy,” and “Knife Talk.”

Following a mini-set from Big Tymers (Birdman and Mannie Fresh), the Young Money trio united on stage for a 30-minute trip down memory lane that included “BedRock,” “Up All Night,” “The Motto,” and “Moment 4 Life.”

At one point, Nicki grabbed Drake’s hand before jokingly asking, “Do you still have COVID?”

Drake paid tribute to his Young Money sister, crowning her and Wayne the “greatest rappers of all time.” “Are these bitches serious? Nobody can f**k with Nicki. It’s like the originator. It starts here, ends here,” he said.

He also showed love to the man who discovered him, Wayne. “I love you. I would go to the end of the earth for this man. You changed my fu**in’ life and you changed this city forever,” he said. “So make some fu**in’ noise for the greatest rapper of all time.”

Before leaving the stage, Wayne made a bombshell announcement. “I’m working on Carter VI, coming soon!” he said before dropping the mic.

Willow Smith stops show after a fan fainted in the crowd

Published

on

Willow Smith’s performance was cut short after someone in the audience fainted.

The 21-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith has been opening for Machine Gun Kelly and noticed a fan fainting during her performance on Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

She abruptly paused her performance, and a video posted online shows the star speaking to the audience, offering words of encouragement to the injured fan before wishing them a speedy recovery.

A video of the incident shows the singer on stage, seemingly unaware of what was going on in the audience.

As her band tones down a song mid-set, a fan is heard shouting: “We love you,” to which Willow responded: “Love you guys, man. Trying to make sure y’all good.”

Her reply was met with applause as the grateful crowd showed their appreciation for her swift actions.

Continuing to address her audience, Willow stated: “One of the most beautiful things about being human is you get to take care of other humans, you know? That’s one of the most beautiful things about being human.”

She added: “I really hope she’s gonna be okay, man.” Reports suggest the spectator left the gig on a stretcher after the medical incident before the artist continued with her performance when the fan had been safely seen to.
