Too Yellow For BET

“What is an award? God gives me an award by giving me life.”—Nas

Whether you admit or not, you’re gonna watch it. Or if you don’t, your girl, your man or your mans and them will. It’s the reason the streets of New York feel so safe today. All the big rappers have gone West to fight over hardware to justify their massive egos and poor spending habits. And just to keep it all interesting, YN’s got a prediction-filled guide to tonight’s edutainment. I told ya I was back on my grizz. You know what it is.

Best Female R&B Artist
Beyonce
Mary J. Blige
Ciara
Jennifer Hudson
Corrine Bailey Rae

Prediction: You ready B? What you think the hottest chick in the game cut her vacay short to get the short end of the stick.

Best Male R&B Artist
Akon
John Legend
Gerald Levert
Ne-Yo
Robin Thicke

Prediction: Damn, the white man or the African should get it, but I gots the feeling the dearly departed will get the nod.

Best Group
Gnarles Barkley
Mary Mary
OutKast
Pretty Ricky
Three 6 Mafia

Prediction: Shit, this category sucks. Can’t niggas curb their egos and partner up with muthafuckas on some music shit. Fuck it, give it to them rowdy 106 and Park niggas.

Best Gospel Artist
Shirley Caesar
Kirk Franklin
Fred Hammond
Dave Hollister
Mary Mary

Prediction: Jesus walks and bubblin’ bs talks, I’m goin’ with dude with more porno than Mr. West: Rev. Franks.

Best Hip-Hop Artist
Diddy
Jay-Z
Lil Wayne
Ludacris
T.I.

Prediction: OK, given the Sunday dust-up, this is sure to be the all-eyes-on-the-screen moment of this marathon show. I say Mr. Sideburns gets it and if Black folk wanna really act right, dude would invite the Rubber Band Man up to the stage and they’d give each other hug. I can see Hova clappin’ in the front row now.

Best New Artist
Lupe Fiasco
Gnarles Barkley
Jennifer Hudson
MIMS
Corrine Bailey Rae

Prediction: Throw your chewstick in the air. Just say Rae!

Best Collaboration
Akon f/ Snoop Dogg “I Wanna Love You”
Beyonce f/ Jay-Z “Déjà Vu’
Beyonce f/Jay-Z “Upgrade U”
Diddy f/ Keyshia Cole “Last Night”
Ludacris f/ Mary J. Blige “Runaway Love”

Prediction: Two chances for the royal couple to prove there tighter than Martin and Gina. Guess the BET brass are determined to see someone other than Baby and Wayne lock lips.

Video of The Year
Akon f/ Snoop Dogg “I Wanna Love You”
Beyonce “Irreplaceable”
Beyonce and Shakira “Beautiful Liar”
Ciara “Like A Boy”
Gnarles Barkley “Crazy”

Prediction: If Bow Wow’s ex doesn’t win for “Promise” instead, the homie B Fred is gonna resign as head whitey-in-charge at Scratch and I can’t afford that. Do the right thing, Mr. Hudlin. Make that change. Word to Warrington.

Best Actor
Idris Elba
Jamie Foxx
Eddie Murphy
Will Smith
Forest Whitaker

Prediction: Hell he paid the price for boning Scary Spice, the Black man with more seeds than ODB could use some cheering up.

Best Actress
Tichina Arnold
Angela Bassett
Jennifer Hudson
Kerry Washington
Chandra Wilson

Prediction: Gotta go to J-Hud just for the Beyonce reaction camera cutaways. Listen close and you can hear the beauty shop banter already: “See the way the redbone scratched her nose… That ain’t an itch. She hates that Black bitch.”

Best Male Athlete
Reggie Bush
LeBron James
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Dwayne Wade
Tiger Woods

Prediction: Where’s the Pacman when you need him? I say Boo-Boo’s buddy with the fists of fury gets the belt.

Best Female Athlete
Swin Cash
Tamika Catchings
Gail Devers
Lisa Leslie
Serena Williams

Prediction: Serena got a big ole butt. I know I told you I’d be true…

BET J Cool Like That
Gerald Levert
Brian McKnight
Eric Roberson
Musiq Soulchild
Elisabeth Withers

Prediction: Score another one for the brother who ain’t here.

Viewer’s Choice Award
Beyonce “Irreplaceable”
Birdman & Lil Wayne “Stuntin Like My Daddy”
Bow Wow f/ Chris Brown “Shortie Like Mine”
Ciara “Promise”
Ne-Yo “Because of You”
Robin Thicke “Lost Without You”

Prediction: The White Man always wins in the end! Stand up, Black America and cast your vote.

    fuck BET

  • John Brown

    Wayne wins the hip-hop artist award and then tells T.I. and Luda to join the stage and yet the Southern Hospitality group is form…

  • http://www.myspace.com/sinistahmoneybagz Sinistah aka Sin Piffcaso

    lmaoo, i do think Gerald Levert will win somethin, unfortunately if he does, it will only be because he’s dead, he’s been musically consistent for many years prior. I agree with most of the predictions, pretty comical analysis.

  • http://www.plasticsquirtguns.blogspot.com thoreauly77

    why isnt bols blog posting?

  • Gutta Gutta

    I’m not watching that bullshit, because most of the nominated artists are either wack or dropped wack albums. Black music is slippin right now.

    Who watches BET anyway? That’s a channel for Idiots and the unemployed, give me The Spike channel….Blak

    ^^^that would be very, VERY hip-hop…meaning that’s a part of the definition of hip-hop. Sadly, shit like this would happen.

  • Pancho

    oh…and since when did the MTV VMA’s…much less the BET Awards become so prestigious?

  • Rockcity

    I wonder how come Nas aint get nominated for male hip hop artist??????

  • Pancho

    correction- WOULDN’T happen.

    my bad

  • Chad Biggz

    This will be DVRed. And I’ll fast forward to everythin but the performance. Well I’ll fast forward when five-0 hits the stage. And gets his Lil Cease on.

  • Danny

    If Mims beats Lupe for best new artist, then it shows that Hip-Hop is past dead, it’s in the autopsy stage…

    Ya dig??

  • Mr T

    If Murphy wins for best actor, will he dedicate it to his daughter. LOL.

  • yaboy

    smh..

    danny, stop with the ‘ya dig’ thing its beyond stupid.

  • Danja29

    I think this show will be terrible. But much like watching a car accident or a Chris Benoit match, I’m prob’ly gonna check it out anyway.

    All those with Lupe on your scorecards for best new artist might wanna skip that idea. Not only does Lupe get little love from BET- nobody really cares about the guy outside those who read blogs and post on message boards.

    ^lmao, back in the day when wrestling was hot, I always knew that cracker Chris benoit was gonna snap one day.

    Anyways, lol ill watch it but the BET awards are usually whack.The last time it was really good was the year Rick James was there and said “Im Rick James, Bitch!”

    I think Jigga might have a shot at Best Hip Hop artist, I mean black people love Jay-Z.

    And MIMS>>that bitch with down syndrome

  • Cuban Link

    and add a no Unk up for viewers choice (which u forgot YN, but dont front BET forgets him all the time too) after where I said when wrestling was hot

    Jay should get best rapper even though his album sucked ass. Lupe should get Best New artist. I think THE best rap album of this year was either Murs (independent) or The Game. I hope when Saigon drops he will change the game.

    P.S: Does BET know anything about hip-hop? How is Diddy nominated and he doesn’t write rhymes?

  • Will The Thrill

    Fuck Cuban Link disrespecting the dead! Punk ass motherfucker!

  • Will The Thrill

    If Chris Benoit actually killed his wife and son, and then himself, I take back the comment against Cuban Link.

  • Ron Lee

    I’m not even gonna comment on the “The Jay Z and Beyonce Get A Lot of Press So We Use Them and Nominate Them for Every Award to Get Higher Ratings Awards”.

    YN, you and sickamore are the only ones who deserve the attention of these readers. Who are these other dickheads? Are they friends of the family? 50 year old virgins you felt sorry for(Bol)? Janitors (Fluffy Sunday)? Crackers in Canada who gave you a handjob at the Kardinal Offishal show? cmon man, these motherfuckers are jokes, just take a look at what the fuck they write about. Bol’s last blog before you??? i swear this dude sticks up the mags of XXL when Wayne and Jay are on the cover. He’s that dude that keeps callin other dudes fags when he’s the 50 year old virgin with homo aspirations. This shit gotta stop, i know you read this shit so you must know that you have to maintain some form of integrity on the site. Having these half-ass never-been’s using the XXL name is tarnishing a legacy.

  • Chris S

    i stopped reading after you didn’t pick lupe for best new artist……nobody in the game today is even close to lupe’s level.

  • C.Brown

    Im real surprised that Game and Young Jeezy did not get nominated for BET Awards. Game had one of the best albums last year and even though Jeezy’s album was trash he had hits.

    Yep, that proud ol’ legacy of doing more to promote the image of blacks as ignorant crack selling chumps than any other media outlet in the world!
