      Word….I’ll check in just to see Keri (hopefully in a 2 peice)and Rocsi (she looked good last year) I wonder if BET is gonna do that car contest again. Im somewhat interested in seeing who wasted the most money.

    what a surprise, a big ol shitty wack rapper convention put on by BET

  • Holla Mann

    With rap becoming more of a drama show than a actual art form the good people at Street Commodity Ent. proudly present the best unsigned with lines…… The and only Holla Mann hails from the grimey streets of Flint michigan with the rhyme skill of the best out and the heart of a soldier at his finest. Equipped with enough 16′s to upset your more established artist Holla Mann brings forth his debut mixtape series L.I.V.E Thru ME ( life-in-various-events). The 13 track opus is a soundtrack for those from all aspects of life be it ya’ bodega hustler or your average 9 to 5′er. Holla Mann’s uncanny ability to cover a wide range of genres from gutter,conceptual, lyrical and street gives listeners a reason to feel every track. Known for his metaphors, realism and ability to slaughter verses this force to be wreckoned with in the form of a man will make you holla for more! The world has been awaiting a artist like this, so open ya’ ears’ and put ya’ eye’s forward the futures before you

    B.E.T. is extremely wack and I haven’t watched Spring Bling in like 5 years. The artist line up posted above is a fucking joke. I wouldn’t watch that group of cornballs even if was high, drunk, and coked up. (I don’t do coke..just saying.) Rap is so fucking weak, right now, it’s kinda sad.
