I left BET in 2003. As they were allowing racism to run rampart. I was told about Destee from a sister, that was over there.Remember when this brother came on the scene, think he was doing spoken word for some years before this "Market for.... " went public.
The infiltration was all over and nobody really knew how to get a hold of the situation or eliminate it.
This was also around the time (2005) when BET was completely transformed after it's sellout in 2000/2001.
There was a memo that was sent to "Little Brother" that rejected their video from being into circulation because it was "too intelligent" for BET.
That was 7 years ago, so when young black kids say "I don't watch BET, I can't stand that crap", I feel people like Taalam, Chuck D, KRS, etc. might have planted small seeds into a few of the rising orators, to avoid the stereotypical pitfalls designed to entrap the listeners as well.
