BET Set To Release New Miniseries Based On the Life of Nas

If you’re a fan of legendary Queensbridge rapper Nasir Jones a.k.a. Nas, then this one’s for you!

Nas and BET have announced a new miniseries on the legendary rapper’s journey from New York City’s Queensbridge projects to the Billboard charts.

Deadline reports the project is headed by Rush creator Jonathan Levine — with Nas, Anthony Saleh, Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell expected as the executive producers. Aside from penning the script, Levine will also direct the series.

The pilot is tentatively titled Street Dreams, an hour-long series on the life of Nasir Jones, which will cover the music, family and the trials and tribulations the hip-hop legend endured as an aspiring rapper in New York City. – via vibe

An autobiography on the life of Nas is a great idea but we’re not sure BET is the network to pull it off. To keep it 100, BET movies are usually cheesy as hell so we hope they don’t screw this up! We’ll keep you posted on its release date as more details emerge.

For Discussion: Is Flo Rida a Sellout for Agreeing To Perform At Trump’s Inauguration for $1 Million?

Rapper/Pop Artist Flo Rida agreeing to perform at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration has become a hot debate on social media. This comes as a surprise for many being that he had previously pulled out of Donald’s Miss USA pageant in 2015 over Trump’s offensive comments about Mexicans. He also is supposed to be a huge fan of the Obamas  and he even posted a pic of Barack Obama and Michelle Obama on Jan. 10, referring to them as a “power couple”.  Flo Rida has never openly denounced the President-elect but it should be noted that the singer was hit with $1.2 million in tax liens in 2014, which may have played a part in his decision. Many are calling Flo Rida a sellout for agreeing to perform for Donald Trump while others say he would be a fool if he didn’t! We’d like to know what do YOU think about it? Is Flo Rida selling his soul or is he should he just ignore his naysayers and, as DJ Khaled says, “secure the bag”? Let us know!
