Following the NAACP Image Awards, we were treated to the first installment of “DJ Cassidy’s Pass The Mic” specials on BET.
Last week, DJ Cassidy and BET announced their new deal to bring his hit virtual music series to television with six “Pass The Mic” specials throughout 2021.
When I created ‘Pass The Mic’ last spring in my living room, I simply wanted to connect people through music and never imagined I would soon be producing it for television on BET. I grew up watching my musical heroes on ‘Video Soul’ and ‘Rap City,’ shows that defined the deejay I became. I am truly honored to collaborate with visionaries like Connie Orlando, Jesse Collins, and Steve Rifkind and partner with BET to elevate ‘Pass The Mic’ to an even higher plane of inspiration and celebration.
Following the NAACP Image Awards, “DJ Cassidy’s Pass The Mic: The BET After Party” kicked off with a bang featuring performances by:
Ginuwine, Montell Jordan, Next, Donell Jones, Soul For Real, Carl Thomas, Brownstone, Adina Howard, Sisqo, Dru Hill featuring Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat, Gina Thompson and Missy Elliott, 112 featuring Mase, SWV, and Wyclef Jean.
