Know if you personally know me you know I have worked BET’s Spring Bling twice. It is by far the most ghetto event I’ve ever attended. But if you like seeing C list rappers and girls half naked then this is right up your alley.
SPRING BLING PROGRAMMING LINEUP:
— BEACH TOWEL THROWDOWN — Hosted by 106 & PARK’s Terrence and Rocsi; this one-hour special features performance from the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B, including J Holiday, Ray J, Webbie, Boosie, and Keyshia Cole.
— RIDES, RIMS, AND RUNWAY (RRR) — Hosted by BET’s own Big Tigger, Alesha Renee and Wyclef Jean; the most tricked out celebrity car show hits the beach combining the best elements of urban culture: whips, hips and good music. RRR encourages spring blingers to enter their “tricked out cars” into the competition. The cars are judged on originality, rims, gadgets, overall appearance, etc. Featuring: Shawty Lo, Rocko, Ryan Leslie, Lupe Fiasco, Rick Ross, and Chingy.
