Hip-hop is gearing up for this coming weekend's BET Awards in L.A. and what already looked like a star-studded weekend keeps adding more names to BET's weekend-long celebration. On Friday (June 26) and Saturday (June 27), BET will bring back its former long-running show 106 & Park for a special edition called 106 & Park: Live from the 2015 BET Experience and they've lined up a slew of names from across the fields of sports and entertainment to stop by and help out.

Friday's edition, hosted by Ray J and Tinashe alongside correspondent Justine Skye during the BET Experience at LA Live presented by Coca-Cola, will feature performances by French Montana, Chedda Da Connect and newly minted 2015 XXL Freshman DeJ Loaf. Along the way, Tyrese, Sanaa Lathan and none other than Floyd Money Mayweather will be stopping by for interviews with the crew. The following day the show will be hosted by Black-ish co-stars Yara Shahidi and Marcus Scribner with an assist from correspondent and current NFL player DeSean Jackson and will feature performances from Machine Gun Kelly, The Wondaland crew (Janelle Monaé, Jidenna and co.), Kehlani and XXL Freshman Tink, while fellow Freshman K Camp as well as Empire star Serayah McNeill will swing through for interviews.

The 2015 edition of the BET Awards are set to kick off Sunday night at 8 pm, but the party starts earlier with the Live! Red! Ready! pre-show, which will feature performances from Rich Homie Quan, Lil Mama, Travi$ Scott (alongside 2 Chainz and Future) and Natalie La Rose with Jeremih. And all that is before the main event itself, which boasts Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, Chris Brown and Ne-Yo among the performers, with Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross from Black-ish set to host all night long. Among the other events set to take place during the BET Experience weekend will be a special reunion from N.W.A., with Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella (though not Dr. Dre) set to take the stage together.
