Brandon & Ken are joined by special guest Bunny to review the 2016 BET Awards, which were simulcast across pretty much every network Viacom operates – Nick-at-Nite, MTV, VH1, etc.
To that end, we discuss the wide variety of Black (mostly) Excellence this very large audience was exposed to, including Beyoncé & Kendrick Lamar’s performance of “Freedom”; the performances of Chloe x Halle and Anderson Paak; Samuel L. Jackson being given the Lifetime Achievement Award; absolutely the many great Prince tributes by Bilal, Erykah Badu, The Roots, Stevie Wonder, Tori Kelly, Jennifer Hudson, Maxwell and Janelle Monáe; the amazing finale by Sheila E. and many of Prince’s collaborators and protégés; and – of course – Jessie Williams’ impassioned acceptance speech for the Humanitarian Award – and how Justin Timberlake’s reaction to such got him in a lot of trouble with Black Twitter.
