Despite the negative press BET faced after a brutal fight between MMG artist Gunplay and 50 Cents’ the body guards at the taping of Hip Hop Awards, the actual presentation of the show turned out to be rather good; and full of memorable moments likeOmarion‘s Gabby Douglas routine around Rick Ross.
The former B2K leader seized the opportunity to show off his dancing skills, but looked more like he was worshipping The Lord in an all white ensemble and black shoes. My Instagram lit up with memes of the MMG singer bouncing around his boss, on stage, with captions like: “This is for Lil’ Saint,” the young boy who was shot in their dance flick–“You Got Served.”
Energetic performance, none-the-less!
