BET Executive Sparks Beef with Waka Flocka Flame
The 2010 BET Hip-Hop Awards were taped down in Atlanta, Ga. this past weekend, attracting the likes of Diddy, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and more. Though the show went off without a hitch, controversy started brewing when rapper Waka Flocka Flame took the stage, with BET Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programming Stephen Hill posting tweets of remorse over the decision to have him perform.
“BET Hip-Hop Awards. The show was going so well … and then Waka Flak-ed. Yeah. I said it,’ tweeted Hill from the ceremony, adding, “Waka. Flacka. Flamed. Out.”
Catching wind of Hill’s tweets following the show, Waka responded with venomous tweets of his own going at the BET executive. “Ima let fans know the inside of this lame game yall call rap they want u to don’t b ya self N x u out 4 being a real n—- … p—- HILL,” he tweeted. “How the f— u invite Waka Flocka and hate when i jump N the crowd to connect more wit fans and friends ….. #rappers R robots lol. [...] I THAK BET AS A WHOLE …..99% SHOULD I SAY ……ITS JUST THAT 1% IS A DUCK A– N—-.’
Later regretting his decision to use the social network to voice complaints, Hill extended the olive branch to Waka Flocka, who has yet to respond. “Let’s you and me talk,” Hill tweeted at Waka. “Bring your manager. I should NOT have sent that first text … but there’s some learning here. You in?”
