Lil Wayne Puts Out 28 Minute Public Service Annoucement

ARTICLE FROM hiph0pwired.com (Full story click here)

People just think of Lil Wayne as a rapper who has served jail terms and has had drug problems etc. But I am here to tell you one thing. Weezy is a very intelligent dude.

I have seen him on “First Take” on ESPN and he knows a lot about sports and and can speak clearly about about football, basketball and other sports.

Plus he is a great businessman who is making tons of cash from Young Money Records. And the thing is he is still a young man who still has a lot ahead of him.

So now Weezy has put out a public service announcement about the dangers of young people drinking syrup and he also talks about the passing of Apple founder Steve Jobs.

How many rappers you know would put out a public service announcement to speak to the masses? I don’t know of any.  I think it is great for Lil Wayne to do this.   Gordon Curvey

Here is the public service announcement by Weezy.

Are You Disappointed With The Programs On B.E.T?

ARTICLE FROM thegrio.com (Full story click here)

I have been waiting to say something on this topic for awhile and then I saw the above article in The Grio website so I said now is the time to say my views on Black Entertainment Network.

I have been very disappointed in the programming on B.E.T. for a long time. In my opinion there is to much videos and reality shows and older programs and not nearly enough news programing.

I remember when B.E.T. had a nightly news program at about 10pm Seattle time that I never missed. It was a very good program hosted by Jackie Reid. It had news and views from the African American point of view every night. Why the program was taken of was and is beyond me. That was just crazy in my opinion.

Their needs to be more news specials on B.E.T.  Much more. More primetime news shows maybe hosted by Ed Gordon and other B.E.T personalities. News on the programs of unemployment in the African American community, teen suicide, the drug and gang problems in our communities, the problems of students dropping out of school and on and on. This is not happening like it should on B.E.T.

I want B.E.T to be more like CNN. News, news and more news. You can come to local programs like my program “Music Inner City TV” for some music videos etc. But even with my show, I try to entertain and educate.

I hope B.E.T. President Debra Lee will see the light and do much more news programming and less videos and reality shows and older programs like Bernie Mac and shows like the Game and others.

I want more positive stories on for instance President Obama because as we know MSNBC and CNN and for sure Fox News does not do enough positive stories on our President and other politicians. Why not a “biography” type of program with profiles on Morgan Freeman or Halle Berry or even Rev Jesse Jackson or Denzel Washington etc.

This is just my opinion. I agree with the folks at the Grio. I hope and pray the B.E.T. will give us much more news and views from the African American community. A good way to do that is to bring back “The B.E.T Nightly News” right now!!   Gordon Curvey

“Music Inner City TV” is celebrating twenty years on the air. Thanks to those of you who have supported us thought the years.

And thanks to EVERY ONE for making “Music Inner City News Magazine” the #1 urban website on the Internet from the Northwest!!
