    Busta ain’t even dropped an album, and he’s nominated. Shit can I get a nomiation? or do I gotta get my boy killed first?

    BET is rubbish, so is Missy.

    Busta I hope your album is all it’s cracked up to be, or you’ll lose your last chance at superstardom.

    Its pretty stupid that Busta is leading this shit when he hasn’t put out an album yet. And Missy Elliot doesn’t deserve that spot. She has aight songs but her videos are fucked up. And by the way these interent rap battles are pretty lame.

    can you guys all…just grow up please?
    he won..you didnt…no need to cry

  • freeagent

    Hey I like Busta (Much Respect!) But I expected to see Juvenille, or Luda. Another thing I don’t feel Missy song should have won over Gettin Some. After seeing that, I wanted to turn the channel. The rest of the show was about K. West and J. Fox.

  • freeagent

    Maybe we should call the award show-”The East Coast BET Awards”……….
    Missy and K.West always win even when they have not had a hit song in a while. K. West-o’kay rapper, great dancer + producer, but 2-BET awards -no way……………

  • Shortylightskin

    don’t matter Busta’s performance blew EVERYBODY off tha stage, don’t need no award to see that
