Ever wonder why you see the same videos over and over again on BET?
Although a bit old, this video claims to be the confession of a BET Rap City & 106 & Park video producer or “veejay” as they are called..
He discussed how the culture was intentionally dumbed down at the demand of Viacom, and how they (meaning him and his colleagues) were likely the last to make sure real hip hop got out into the mainstream via BET.
He also revealed that music video TV producers are told what videos, and in which order to play them. If they were given any choices as it related to content, they were preselected choice.
Also mentioned were Mike Jones, T.I., Doctor T, Paul Wall, Jay Z, Redman, Cam’Ron, Rap City, New York Rap, Houston and Down South Rap, and stated that calling 106 & Park is a waste of time because they are told what videos to play anyway.
