Master P Blasts BET for Not Honoring Prodigy While He Was Alive, Boycotts Awards
Master P said he boycotted this year's BET Awards, because he didn't like how the network was going to honor Mobb Deep's Prodigy, who died last week at the age of 42.
"BET would have never changed their show for Prodigy if he was still alive," he wrote on Instagram. "It was a great thing acknowledging and celebrating the life of Prodigy and all of his accomplishments but it's a shame that none of these artists are told how great they are while they're still living. I know the truth hurts."
The 47-year-old mogul then asked BET a few questions concerning the New York wordsmith.
"Was Prodigy or Mobb Deep on BET's radar last week," he wrote. "Were they invited to the red carpet event, offered guest passes or an invite to perform at the awards show in the last 10 years? I'm willing to bet the answer is no. I came to support my daughter today on the BET Experience stage, but I decided that my family and I will not participate in the red carpet or awards events this year."
If you missed it, Mobb Deep's Havoc paid tribute to Prodigy during the ceremony, along with Lil' Kim.
