106 & Park Travels to the Land of the Rising Sun

betlogo.gifBET has struck a deal with their sister network, MTV, to bring their number one rated music countdown show, 106 & Park, to MTV Japan this fall. Unlike its U.S. counterpart, MTV Japan will only air a weekly “best of” 106 & Park in English with Japanese subtitles. Hosts Rosci and Terrance recently took a trip to the Land of the Rising Sun to tape footage for their inaugural shows. “I was surprised they were not that far behind when it comes to hip-hop and I’m proud to share our Black culture with our newly-found Japanese fans,” says Terrance. BET Chairman, Debra Lee, helped broker the deal in order to expand the company’s international reach. “Black American culture has incredible appeal around the world and transcends barriers of race and ethnicity,” says Lee. “There are places around the globe that hunger for what BET has to offer. It’s our plan to build a footprint of international partners to help us deliver that content.”

    bout time some’n good in hip-hop happened, next to my birth that is!

    I think its funny how they say “BET an MTV brokered a deal”… they’re both owned by the same damn company. Thats like saying “me and my sister worked out a deal with my mom to go to the amusement park”

    The only thing that happened, is some white man up in the office said “It’s okay”, and them niggas got the ball rolling. end of story. And while we’re on the subject, I’m scared that some japanese people will get their first exposure to Black Americans from BET.
