BET Hip Hop Awards Black Carpet Coverage > OH MY!!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 Saturday afternoon, credentials on-deck, Tom’s in-tow, and natural hair twisted, I prepped to interview some of the biggest stars in Hip-Hop along BET’s Black Carpet. October 1st, the award show pre-tapped in the Atlanta Civic Center, and I covered for Tastemaker Magazine!! *Love them* Paired with a professional videographer/photographer, we staked our claim alongside the MANY, media outlets all vying to chat with stars as they walked by. Some of my favorite interviews:

  • Nelly -He looked like happy money. A rare expression during this recession, and lyrics of delusion.
  • Rick RAWSEVery nice in person,he complimented my Taurus piece. I was confused by his silk pajama choice, however.
  • DJ Drama – So articulate and chill. I should’ve had a glass of what he sipped.
  • Drumma Boy – STILL a humble artist with a great personality! His excitement is infectious.
  • BIG KRIT – ASIDE from being a favorite artist of mine, he was SO humble, pleasant, and posed for my STAN moment.  *SWOON*

This was my first Black Carpet event, and was a bit nervous trying to secure artists before their publicists pulled them away. Shout/Out to all the working media on the carpet, particularly the Jasmine Brand and Marc from ATL Profile who worked opposite sides of me. It was quite an experience;  think I’m broken-in just right. Check the exclusive video coverage at Tastemaker Magazine!
