Word on the street or net is BET has banned Teairra Mari’s “Sponsor” music video which features rapper Soulja Boy because the message that the song conveys is “unacceptable”
Apparently it was not just a rumor,the network has indeed banned the video according to Mari’s representatives are speaking out about the boycott saying:
I was informed that 106 and Park, a source for African Americans to promote their music, have banned Teairra Mari’s song Sponsor and other projects from surfacing on their channel. No one else will report because they don’t want to put it on blast. I feel bad for the underdogs because they are not given a fair chance and its even worse when your own kind won’t promote you. What’s bad about Sponsor that overshadows any work that Lil Wayne, Ludacris, and many others have showcased on BET? Why is it, do you think, that booty shaking and such is allowed but a video by a woman encouraging others to make it is bad. Why is it that Lil Wayne can perform “Every Girl In the World” with his daughter on stage, but women artists have to be “appropriate”. I understand if they would at least let Teairra come on the show to explain the concept behind the song. It just seems like a shady business where people who have made it have certain control over those that haven’t
through shady connections.
I know people may say “well who checkin’ for…” but what if these people actually had a chance in the business if it wasn’t so shady?
They can play “Every girl” video and Jeezy “White Girl” and Beyonce “Ego” song but not this vid, BET on some other shit. They wouldn’t play Drake “Best I Ever Had” vid because of the slow motion of the titties but they got Nikki Minaj fake ass checks splattered all on they channel. They even played Erykah Badu “Window Seat” video, she but ass naked in the video, get the fuck outta here with that shit! BET is on some fake boogie shit. I got a blog coming up for BET exposing they fakeness man in the words of Ed Lover C’Mon son!
