Eternal Nothingness is Okay if Your Dressed For It
because they are "not relevant", little brother is a new addition to that list

but since you mentioned little brother anyone heard their new album? i'd like to hear how it is
fucking Tribe is on that list, and KRS-one, they should be ashamed of themselves
Fuck that shiT, MEDIA IS SO GAY

skiing is for muggles
c-lo is right, little brothers disputes over airplay is very fitting b/c of their whole album theme.
heres a radio clip talking about little brother and BET telling them that they are "too intelligent" for the audience.
BET also wouldn't play "shopping bags" by de la soul last year. How can a de la soul track produced by madlib not be relevant?
MF DOOM and little brother are 2 of the most important things in hip hop right now, and its "not relevant" enough to play. BULLSHIT
why 4th Avenue Jones and KRS-One?
Wolf Creek Ski Area
I'm still waiting for the one I'm waiting for
hip hop wouldnt be what it is today without KRS One.
wow....and you felt like telling us that because ?
if your going to bang twins, cover your head!
If your on your knees...rep the steeze!
ENORM Condoms. The new hot core company.
you guys watch bet? i thought it was for black people?
If you have made mistakes, even serious mistakes, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.
^ u 2 obviously dont listen to hip hop, but a lot of people on here do.
What the fuck is "not relevant" supposed to mean? that is bullshit.
And a bunch of videos about how much more of a pimp or how much more money someone has than you is ofcourse relevant.
thats fucked almost every mc one that list is fuckin sick, and now little brother wtf s goin on, little borther is puttin out some of the illest shit in hiphop these days, there new album is fuckin crazy and the show they put on in t-dot last sat was off the hook....fuck bet
they banned kool keith? what the fuck man, kool kieth is sick.
kool keith, mf doom, tribe called quest
ill be super rich and own mt.hood and let everybody from ns ski for free... except freezed
they wont play these artists because they are irrelevant to their demographic (female 12-18), many of these artists are pushing modern hip hop, such as little brother, MF DOOM, and of course classic hiero, De La, and GZA. But BET, which is owned by the same company as MTV(Viacom), would rather play 50 or Ciarra. Make some extra bucks that way.
yea wtf, tribe called quest is on that
fucking midnight marauders album, awesome.
bone thugs, geto boys, mos def, and ice cube?! what the fuck
thats fuckin ridiculous why would they ban so many of the greats?

hahahah what a fucking joke. gotta love the media fuck bet mtv and vh1, and my hyprocrite ass watch's them too...
Life is not TV
sounds like another corparate bullshit move to not allow the independent side of music be heard, they don't play it because the labels that fund bet will not make money off of lots of these artists, other than that I blame bill o'reilly...ha

if there was any one of those artists that made a comeback to "relevance" you can bet they would be taken off that list. think of it in the example of Johnny Cash. who would have thought that he would be on mtv? its simply a list that would help to filter out the videos sent to be reviewed, but if they were considered popular by the mainstream again, they would be on the air.

i dont know why you all are surprised or concerned, even 2 years later. who really cares? do you honestly watch BET for the music?
Smokin on the trees at 100 degrees
these aren't relevant to the BET watchers niche. isn't that a good thing? isn't that what separates these artist from the ignorant majority of listeners? shouldn't you be glad these artists aren't allowed to air videos on BET?
Thank god vanilla ice isn't banned
stupid ni**ers - banning some of the best artists that have played major parts in the development of rap.
now i'm totally ok with not getting that channel with my cable package cause in protest i wouldn;t watch it anyway.
not relevant=not talking about pimpin ho's
It's simple...why use air time with artists that only a small amount of people like when it could be used to pump out some generic 50cent???
The majority of people don't wanna hear the stuff mos def is saying because it take alot of thought, it criticizes and it's not popular. Yea it sucks major ball sack but thats the state of media today, so get used to it cuase its not gonna change untill you walk into a club and hear "shopping bags" or "mathematics" playing and the whole club bumpin to it
