Jamie Foxx’s opening monologue was
Michael B Jordan interesting…
Good thing Michael B. Jordan was at 2018 BET Award otherwise Jamie Foxx would have actually had to tell jokes during his opening monologue. We love Jamie Foxx, but last night wasn’t his best show. The actor, who usually keeps us laughing uncontrollably, seemed unprepared and like he was just there for the drinks. Then again, that seemed to be a common thread throughout the night. Luckily for us, MBJ was seated front row to provide eye candy between awkward transitions. #BlackTwitter was a little more harsh about it.
Nicki Minaj’s Performance
We’re not actually sure how to describe Nicki’s performance. It was somewhere at the intersection of desperate and dis tew much.
The Best Part Of The Anita Baker Tribute
We were a bit skeptical about the Anita Baker tribute because we weren’t sure who BET would get to convey the soul and tone Anita blessed us with. They did the right thing and went to Jesus, because Yolanda Adams reminded us why she was a cushioned seat in heaven right next to Jesus.
Meek Mills Powerful Statement
Meek Mill used the BET stage to honor fallen rapper XXXtentacion, who’s death sent shock waves through the Black community. Since the rapper’s return from jail, he’s been using his platform to educate and raise awareness around issues that deal with mass incarceration, and the hardships of being a Black youth.
In Response To Debra Lee Giving Herself An Award

Well where else was she supposed to be?
Nipsey Hussle Smacked Someone Before The Show Even Started
Janelle Monae Had The Best Bars All Night
Fans Were Mad Cardi B Wasn’t There
That pretty much sums it up.
