Master P Boycotts BET Awards Over Prodigy
I’m sure many of you were watching the 2017 BET Awards thinking, “Where’s Master P?!” (insert sarcasm)
Well, the No Limit mogul took to social media on Sunday to let everyone know he would support his daughter, but he and his family would be boycotting the awards show because the network didn’t celebrate Prodigy while he was alive.
P went on to explain how Lil Kim and Havoc‘s tribute to Prodigy was nice, but before the rapper’s death, they couldn’t have cared less about 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.
