As Black Music Month draws to a close it’s fitting that is is one of the busiest weekends yet this year for Black Music. The BET Awards and it’s newest component – the BET Experience features a weekend’s worth of partying, concerts and the Big Show. Anthony Hamilton and Mary J. Blige continue their runs across the country on their respective tours. And where there’s black music, there must be Beyonce, who does two concerts in the L.A. area and one in Vegas in the next few days. Whew! Mrs. Carter don’t play. Here’s the rest of what’s going on this weekend.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
