Master P is blasting BET for honoring Nipsey Hussle with the Humanitarian Award at the recently held BET Awards.
Master P thinks BET should have given Nipsey Hussle his flowers while he was still with us. The No Limit Records CEO appeared on the Breakfast Club Tuesday to talk Black Hollywood, Tyler Perry and the premiere of “I Got the Hook Up 2.” In the midst of the discussion, Master P discussed the challenges he faced trying to get BET to work with him on certain projects. The conversation led to other criticisms from hip-hop icon of the network, including the decision to give the late Nipsey Hussle the Humanitarian Award at the 2019 BET Awards, a little over two months after Nipsey was killed in Los Angeles.
Master P commended Breakfast Club host Charlamagne Tha God for asking in a previous interview with BET head of programming Connie Orlando if Nipsey was up for the award before he died. Orlando’s answer was “no.”
“Nipsey is my dog, that’s my boy. But I’m like you know, give people their flowers while they’re here. Don’t just get caught up in the hype,” he said. “Nipsey’s daddy was trying to say that. ‘Why y’all ain’t give that to my son while he was here?’ I just think that everybody gets caught up in whatever is hot instead of doing what’s right.”
Master P went on to say he wanted to have a conversation with Orlando about the decision. Charlamagne agreed that Nipsey deserved the honor at last year’s BET Awards.
“I don’t even think they knew who he was last year,” Master P responded. “He got into with that guy at the thing, they were acting like they didn’t know him,” referring to the viral “Nipsey slap” that was caught on camera during an altercation that occurred before the ceremony in 2018 involving Nipsey and his bodyguard.
“So if that was me or 50 Cent, we wouldn’t have even been able to get into the BET Awards this year,” Master P said. He continued by saying he deserved the award for Best Male Hip-Hop at the 2018 show, an award he won this year for his Grammy-nominated album Victory Lap.
This isn’t the first time Master P was critical of the network. Last year he spoke out against the tribute for the late Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy during the 2018 BET Awards, saying the network would have never changed the award for Prodigy if he was still alive.

Beyonce Taps Blue Ivy, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar For ‘Lion King’ Album Tracklist
The tracklist for the Beyoncé curated “Lion King” album was revealed, and Blue Ivy is the star.
Lion King: The Gift will be released this Friday along with the debut of the live-action film in which megastar Beyoncé Knowles-Carter plays the role of Nala. Beyoncé recently announced that she would be blessing us with an album to go along with the film, and released the first single, “Spirit,” last week.
The rest of the tracks were announced as well as the many artists that are featured including Bey’s husband Jay-Z himself, and their 7-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carty. Blue accompanied her parents at the American Lion King premiere and stopped the internet with her pantsuit outfit that coordinated with her momma’s.
Among the artistes on the project includes Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Wale, Tierra Whack, Wiz Kid, and of course Childish Gambino, who also stars in the Lion King live-action movie.
The soundtrack was produced by Queen Bey herself where she incorporates several African artists. Beyoncé told ABC News that she used this moment to create “a love letter to Africa.”
“I wanted to make sure that we found the best talent from Africa and not just used some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it,” she said. “I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”
Mrs. Knowles-Carter said she incorporated original drums and chants from the Motherland and mixed it with American sounds to create their own genre.
“I feel like the soundtrack, it becomes visual in your mind. It’s a soundscape. It’s more than just the music, because each song tells the story of the film,” she said.
It has been a little over a year since we got new music from Bey when she and Jay-Z dropped their joint album, “Everything Is Love” in June 2018.
A behind-the-scenes special with the entire cast of the Lion King hosted by Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts will air Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Drake Sued By Woman Claiming She Sustained Brain Injury At His Concert
Drake is getting sued by another female.
The good thing for the Canadian rapper is that this lawsuit not related to any alleged sexual misconduct, but the bad news is that he is getting sued. Amanda Giovacco, 24, of Staten Island, filed a lawsuit against Drake claiming that she received brain injuries at his concert at Madison Square Garden in August 2016 when someone threw a beer bottle that hit her in the head. She is also suing Madison Square Garden and Live Nation claiming negligence in allowing the crowd to get raucous, Page Six reported.
“Amanda Giovacco, was violently struck by a beer bottle that was thrown while attending the Drake concert, was maliciously and without just cause provocation, subjected to a battery,” her lawsuit claims.
Giovacco argued in her lawsuit that the venue was negligent when they allowed vendors to serve “excessive amounts of alcohol” to partygoers and that the venue was overcrowded with inadequate security. She accused the venue of improperly serving partygoers beer in glass bottles instead of plastic containers, one of which hit her in the head causing permanent damages.
The 24-year-old female also claimed that Drake has a history of violence at his concerts and that Live Nation and Madison Square Gardens didn’t take enough steps to ensure that the venue was safe. She claimed that she “sustained a traumatic brain injury and seizures,” which derailed her dreams of going to medical school.
Drake has not yet responded to the lawsuit.
