I don't know what to say, Sage.
I mean, it's cool and all that BET recognized your music, but they did a bad job describing your music...

Oh well...

Wow congrats Sage. I got to admit I was some what surprised by BET giving you recognition like that. Not that you don't deserve it (I don't know of an artist who has worked harder to get that shit out), but dudes like that are usually too ignorant to acknoledge artists like yourself success. Can't wait for Hope.

I don't understand the surprises. I thought the album was dope, too.

Peace,

Yeah thats why I said I was surprised by someone like BET giving recognition to Sage. Not cause the album wasn't dope but because since when have bitches like that supported good underground artists. Surely you'd be surprised if Sage did a video and it got play regulary on BET?!!?

I think the video would be more likely to get play on BET than MTV.

Same company, though. I just think that BET is a little less corny when it comes to hip hop than MTV, so maybe they approach it with a more critical ear. Who knows.

New Engalnd OWNS that list, though. ;-)

Peace,
Shane

BET isn't a person, it's a media entity. It doesn't have opinions or a personality. This one dude they hired to write for their website (maybe just the one article, maybe more, I haven't checked) knows a thing or two about indie rap. it's not a big surprise, and it doesn't represent anything changing at BET.

Very true.

Kinda what I was getting at, although much more thought out. Heh.

Peace,
