THE BET EXPERIENCE

This weekend might have been one of the craziest weekends for sunny Los Angeles due to the none other, BET Awards! If we had to describe The BET Awards in one word it would be–FIRE. From the Prince tributes to Jesse Williams READING ALL OF SOCIETY…We’d have to say the 2016 award show was pretty darn good!

 

Leading up to the show, of course BET had to do it big with a multitude of star-studded events! The BET Experience at L.A Live presented by Coca-Cola and Sprite turned all the way up at the STAPLES center with celebrity performances by LIL WAYNE & 2 CHAINZ, TORY LANEZ, A$AP FERG FETTY WAP, TY DOLLA $IGN, KODAK BLACK
