    bet hip hop?!? what the fuck.

    Discussion started by Grandola - Jul 16, 2002

    so i was channel surffing the other day and i came across some commercial on BET advertising "BET HIP HOP". i didn't catch the whole thing, but anyhow - i was wondering what the deal with this is? are they trying to make something similar to MTV2 but make this for channel for "HIP HOP" which, is what they play already (by their standards)?

    anyone know whats up?

    BET would be cool if every fuycking time i flipped onto it isnt playing "hot in herre" or "still fly" or "just a friend" by that mario dickrider. but they continue to do that, so BET is not cool.

    bet is owned by viacom (owners of mtv), so it's not competition with mtv2... it's just another attempt to market toa a nich of 'underground' cats thats tha tneed everyone to know they're down.

    the box is still around in st. louis.... on friday nights, the owners (a tall lanky, shaggy guy in his late 30s and a short, fate, mustached guy in his mid 40s) go on and 'vj'... sometimes the fat guy brings his son... and it's 'retrovision' night... so you can go and request doo doo brown and put em on the glass and all that.
