As Black Twitter would call it, the annual family reunion where all the Black Celebs show up and show out for the Bet Awards, held in Los Angeles. Lets not forget this was the first year for the BET Awards without Stephen Hill.  With the state of urban music, the word “Culture” is thrown around so much and defined in so many ways, many did not know what to expect. Would it be a full “shit show” or  a “contemporary collaboration” of old school and new school. As we watched from the Wordkrush Office, we came to a consensus that our highlighted parts stemmed from the Xscape reunion, which we were here for all of that. The New Edition hybrid performance between the actors from the biopic and all it members, Yes emphasis on ALL, Bobby was present. The vocal lessons from Tamar Braxton, Luke James, El Debarge, and newcomer Jessie Reyez. And we could not forget Leslie Jones intro monologue, and keeping us laughing with her odd sense of humor. But her remake of Amber Rose epic bush flick had us dying. Despite the malfunction before SZA performance, overall this family reunion was entertaining and full of nostalgic performances  that took us back to the 90s. Check out the list below of this years 2017 BET Award Winners.
