Pretty Ricky hit up the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards red carpet in matching black sequined jackets. They made the rounds and gave their same lil customary group speech but surprised me with an impromtu verse from “Tipsy”. Lingerie, the newest member of the group (and lead singer in lieu of Pleasure P) spit of verse acapella and blew me away. Check out the video below:
You know it’s party time if Diddy’s in town! The Bad Boy was spotted poppin bottles with Young Jeezy last night at The Compound for one of the million parties surrounding the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards which film in Atlanta this weekend. CTE, Bad Boy and AG Entertainment all on one bill? You already know it was off the chain. A few spotted at the compound were Young Buck, Lil Boosie, Slim Thug, Devyne Stephens, Kenny Burns and BET’s Stephen Hill. I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume there were females there too….
T.I. and Tiny were spotted at Dreamz nightclub during one of the afterparties for the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards. Tiny may not have made the red carpet but she did make it to the club! So now you guys can stop emailing me asking about her. Tiny was right were she should be…sitting next to her man! Lil Wayne, Manny Fresh, Maino, D. Woods Juelz Santana and more also flowed through the spot.

Ne-yo held a combination Birthday/After-party Saturday night at Atlanta’s Mason Murer Fine Arts gallery. The Cirque du Soleil themed birthday bash was the first stop for all the celebs in town for the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards, which was held earler that evening. The scenary was amazing! Guests were greeted at the entrance by a man with a machete and a naked lady in body paint and the liquor flowed as circus acts were performed in every corner.
The red carpet was also booming as several “A” list celebs made their way into to venue immediately following the awards show. The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Chingy, Gorilla Zoe, La La Vasquez, D. Woods, Bow Wow and more all took part in Ne-Yo’s birthday celebration. Jermaine Dupri even ditched his own venue (Studio 72) to make a brief appearance.
The 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards virtually TOOK OVER Atlanta this past weekend. Streets were shut down and midtown residents were pissssssed off! Me? I was in heaven as all my favorite hip hop honorees were in one spot and although the awards SHOW took over Atlanta, Atlanta artists took over the show! I came, I saw, I wrote about it…check out a few of my favorite moments from the show:
