Dark Times for BET Hip-Hop Awards – Black Carpet

By Ibrahim Malik

I’m glad BET did a black carpet because last night’s BET HIP HOP Awards show black carpet was a red carpet’s funeral and leading the procession was WORST Dressed Diamond  giving “Ho in Morning” tease and Rick Ross embodied the entire sky. I swear I commend anyone who writes a best and worst dressed list for the BET Awards because I want to give them all “F’s”. Seriously, Did we expect an eye-catching “Black Carpet” with absentee Divas like Beyoncé, Rihanna, or Nicki Minaj or even the Faux Divas Ciara or Keri Hilson. Diamond looked like a combination of Black swan and the wicked witch of the South. It makes me think WWRD = ‘WhatWouldRihannaDo”? for her Rated R album.  Wale <> Let’s give him three claps that his dreds finally reached his shoulders but #Lowkey he was looking sexy.

Diana Ross needed to come get her kids; Closet Case Evan Ross was serving Homeless Chic, while his big sister Tracee Ellis Ross was “Almost” Best Dressed. She had a great outfit but just decided to steal some horseshoes and painted the bottom red LONGhairREDbottoms. Tracee’s co-star Malcolm-Jamal Warner was a breath of fresh air for the guys with a youthful clean look, definitely Best Dressed Male.   NELLY wins my SEXIEST Rapper Alive award, I mean his style was hood and basic but still sexy—He stayed true to his personal style. Honoree LL Cool J who normally brings his Sexy Swagger appeared to have just rolled out of bed and licked his lips and he was dressed. I am at a loss of words when it comes to the Da Brat, I didn’t get it but it’s definitely her Style.  Others such as Big Sean & Ace Hood, were the rappers standard. I would’ve preferred them to be shirtless or in “Big” Sean case with no pants. And to sum up everyone else, just think tight and tacky for the ladies and jeans, t-shirt & Bling for the fellas. BET please GET IT TOGETHER for next year! the BET Hip Hop Awards Encore airs This Friday, October 14th 9PM/8C
