AS YOU CAN SEE...LUPE FIASCO AIN'T NO WHERE ON THIS GOT DAMN LIST!

Now im not saying that Lupe should be nominated because of bias reasons...im saying Lupe should be nominated because he's had one hell of a year and he DESERVES to be nominated...WASN'T SUPERSTAR NUMBER 1 ON 106 AND PARK?!?!?!?! Did Lu NOT have THE NUMBER 1 HIP HOP ALBUM FOR WEEKS AT A TIME?!?!? DID THIS MAN NOT WIN A DAMN GRAMMY THIS YEAR!!!!!!!!!! GTFOH BET!!

Its BET so what can you expect right...its clear the station isn't what it use to be but ATLEAST you think they would acknowledge a true artist with true talent such as Mr. Fiasco...Playaz Circle nominated for Best Group? SMH..what kinda fuckery is THAT!

At the end of the day I say FUCK BET!!! Lucky for Lu he has fans that support him and don't buy into the BS...and its ALL PAID OFF!



so TAKE THAT...HATAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

okay 2 things. 1. Why everytime somebody needs an example of bad hip hop they bring up soulja boy? 2. That playas circle shit is some bull!

The Best Hip Hop category I don't really agree with at all. I think lupe should of been nominated for best Hip Hop for real. This sucks!!!!

Brandi said...

We all know that the BET Awards (or BET, period) has no real significance. Nobody takes them seriously.

The BET awards does have some clout. It's one of the most entertaining award shows on cable television. But their treatment of Lupe is dubious. Even if I were not a fan, I would question the network's decision. Once upon a time BET made it a practice to give African American artist who where otherwise ignored by white media (cough.. MTV and the Grammies) the recognition they deserved. Where else could acts like B2K receive praise. Remember when India Arie was nominated for like, 8 Grammies and won nothing. Later that year She was more than compensated for her achievements at the BET awards. Well to make a long story short, they don't do that Sh..t any more and It's a shame. I knew something was foul at the 2007 ceremony. Upon winning several BET awards, a Golden Globe and Oscar Jennifer Hudson beat Lupe Fiasco and several other nominees for best new artist. I love Jennifer but at the time she had not released an album or single.

I don't like it, but I unfortunately am not surprised.

K. Denise said...

oh man B2K. i remember those days

angelomineiro said...

you still watch booty entertainment and reality television (mtv) ? thats lame i expected this. there are thousands or artists that should be listed but arent. thanks to viacom who bought bet, do your research

Mia said...

i already knew that. i was pissed the hell off when i saw that he wasn't nominated. it's ok every 1 just don't watch that b.s. a$$ award show!!!!! it was always b.s.

Mendi said...

LMAO at "Booty Entertainment..." That's beautiful! You're right though. Both of those channels are just bullcrap now.

amirah:the uncool said...

wow...that is terrible. BET has been going down for a while and it's really showing. and the artists that are gonna win are pretty obvious. wack. just shows that there are so many people that are STILL sleepin on lupe. shame...

Anonymous said...

Ashanti for Best Video of the Year?? WOW. Besides the apparent lack of recognition for Lupe's achievements, I'd say this is a prime example of the sheisting taking place instead of an awards show.

lil wayne didnt put out a album or did anything he should be moved off the list but b.e.t loves kissing his ass Espacally rocsi from 106 and park, lupe should've made the list if i was him in evry interveiw i do i would bring that shit up

k3ifers said...

i agree with brandi. who cares, bet is whack.

angelomineiro, I am aware that BET was sold to some conglomerate. The individuals that own MTV,Vh1 and countless other ventures correct?
However, I was not aware that the buyer was Viacom. Thank you for informing me lol. Actually, I do watch the Grammies,BET and MTV awards. There is nothing "lame" about staying abreast of pop culture. angelomineiro,to have such strong opinions about "booty entertainment" and "reality television (MTV)" you, yourself would have had to watch your fair share of the two channels. I guess we are equally lame in our interest. Otherwise I am to conclude that you are basing your argument upon something you know absolutely nothing about. Maybe you should do your research.:)

I think it's pretty interesting that everyone is so quick to start slamin' and bashin' BET for "snubbing" Lupe Fiasco. Now let me ask you this: If Lupe had been nominated for even one award do you think this entire blog post would have ever happened? My guess is that it would have been congratulatory of the honor of having received a nomination. .... interesting how at the first sign of something going in an unwanted direction, people are so quick to start criticizing.

shysuperstar315 said...

that is the reason he is going to release one LAST album.... wow

gchcfhfh said...

I'm mad at it but not at the same time because Lupe could sit and say "ha ha I got a Grammy...Grammy > BET award" so fuck them.

wait......
People still watch Black Embarrassment Television!?! O_O!

KayCee said...

sheena medina WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN! BET has always snubbed lupe since the beginning so wtf are u talking about?

tokenturk23 said...

Dats sum BS...Straight up...Lupe needs to at least be in the damn category for Best Male Hip-hop...

This man has been in tha game for A LONG AZZ TIME!!And even with superstar peeps JUST DONT GET IT!!
Dumb Ducks i say, Their all Dumb Ducks!!!

Sheena Medina said...

Kaycee, what do you mean by "BET has always snubbed lupe"? He was nominated for Best New Artist and nominated for 4 BET Hip Hop Awards in '07. Yeah...it sounds like BET has no freakin' idea who Lupe Fiasco is. So....in other words....where have you been?
