The final episode of BET’s “106 & Park” aired yesterday. And it ended its 14-year reign reuniting all of the former hosts, including the original hosts Free & AJ Calloway. Peep the pics and video from the finale episode inside….
After announcing BET’s hit countdown show “106 & Park” would be transitioning to a digital platform, the last and final episode premiered last night. And it reunited fans with its original (and probably most beloved) co-hosts Free and AJ Calloway. AJ rocked a "I Can't Breathe" t-shirt (and his Omega hook) for his final appearance on the show, showing solidarity for Eric Garner.
Following a 14-year-run, “106 & Park” became a staple in the Hip Hop community that catapulted careers for many of today’s artists. Everyone from Beyonce, Jay Z, Aaliyah, Kanye West and many other artists and entertainers hit the “106 & Park” couch and stage to connect with their fans.
For it’s finale episode, BET brought back all of its co-hosts over the years including Terrence J, Rocsi Diaz, Big Tigger, Julissa Bermudez, Shad Moss (Bow Wow), Keishia Chante, Jordan "Shorty da Prince" Johnson, Kimberly "Paigion" Walker and Mykel "Miss Mykie" Gray.
Also, Keyshia Cole and Wale stopped by to share some of their fondest memories of the show.
"Shorty da Prince" also made a statment rocking a "Don't Shoot" t-shirt hitting the stage with his hands up in support of the late Michael Brown.
During the show, the co-hosts went down memory lane reflecting on their most memorable moments from the show. A shocking revelation was also revealed: Rocsi told viewers that the “argument” between her and Terrence J was fake!
She said they had been co-hosting for two years without ever taking a vacation. So, when Rocsi decided she wanted a few days off, they staged the argument for her to be absent for two weeks. Why? Well, she revealed it was Stephen Hill’s idea because he felt fans wouldn’t understand her taking a break. Oh….
Anything for ratings.
To close the show, Shad Moss aka "Mr. 106 & Park" hopped on stage to for a surprise performance of his throwback hit "Fresh Az I'm Iz".
Nicki Minaj is releasing a mini-doc to promote her Pinkprint album, and she tapped the sexy Boris Kodjoe to help bring the love and heartbreak. Plus, Nas is still sharpening his fim producing skills as he's got another movie on the way....
After releasing what she dubs her most personal album yet, Nicki Minaj is starring in a new short film to accompany her newly released album.
Directed by Taylor Green & Francesco Carrozzini, the “Anaconda” rapper put her acting skills to work in a new 16-minute mini movie titled, The Pinkprint. The short film was broken up into three acts based off of three emotional tracks from her LP, “The Crying Game”, “I Lied” and the finale “Grand Piano.”
Nicki is joined by Addicted star Boris Kodjoe and international male model Willy Monfret in her cinematic reel about love and heartbreak.
Check it below:
Hmm...that alleged Universal Music A&R Jaywan did say she would be releasing a documentary. Also, Billboard projects the femcee’s third album will sell 160,000 copies in its first week. That's a huge drop from her debut album Pink Friday (which sold 375,000 copies in its first week) and her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (which sold 253,000 in its first week). Maybe some of what he said was true.
Speaking of Nicki....
Nicki Minaj is featured on a brand new track with the Madonna titled “B*tch I’m Madonna”. The Queen of Pop is readying her 13th studio album Rebel Heart and tapped the “ONLY” raptress for a few bars on her new single.
General Electric (GE) has teamed up with VEVO to release a brand new documentary about breakdancing titled, “Shake The Dust”. And Nas is executive producing the upcoming project.
The documentary will follow break dancers from low-income neighborhoods from all over the world who bring about positive social change through breakdancing. We can expect the documentary to premiere Dec. 24th. Check the official trailer above.
A new video has surfaced of the aftermath between Ray Rice and his now wife Janay Rice after he knocked her unconscious in an elevator. And it shows the twosome KISSING while in handcuffs after being arrested. Sighs….peep the video inside….
But now, new surveillance video has surfaced. And it’s showing what went down once the cops were called and they were thrown in handcuffs.
In the newly released security-camera video (obtained by ABC News), we see a quite distressed Janay talking with hotel staff at the Revel Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J. after her NFL baller fiancé knocked her unconscious in an elevator. You can see hotel security quickly move in to keep Ray away from Janay as she breaks down crying while sitting in wheelchair talking to staffers.
Soon, the cops arrive and place both Ray and Janay in handcuffs, then escort them out of the lobby into an elevator. All of a sudden Janay completely switches it up. While inside, she and the NFL running back began to cuddle up against one another...and then they kiss! Sighs….
Initially, they both were charged with assault. Janay’s charges were later dropped, while her husband’s was upgraded to aggravated assault. But after having his day in court (with Janay right by his side), he was entered into a probationary program that will allow his charges to be dismissed after a year. Ray lost his spot on the Ravens and was suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Ray appealed that ruling and won, so he’s currently a free agent, eligible to sign to any NFL team.
Since all of this went down, Ray and Janay have been trying to move on. Recently, they celebrated with friends in Baltimore with a surprise party at their house. We noticed there was a lot of alcohol amongst the couple and their friends…the one thing Ray blamed for punching his wife in the face. Let’s hope they’re not partaking in drinking again. We saw what happened last time.
Peep the new surveillance video below:
