Talib Kweli is not feeling being snubbed by the BET Hip Hop Awards in this year’s Best Hip Hop Platform category, and he’s letting the network know about it.
Talib took to Instagram to call out BET for failing to nominate his People’s Party podcast, which he believes is the best Hip Hop podcast out right now.
Talib’s post came after The Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne Tha God questioned the award going to Yung Miami’s REVOLT TV show and podcast, Caresha Please, which beat out his popular morning radio show.
HipHopDX, Drink Champs, The Joe Budden Podcast, Million Dollaz Worth of Game, XXL, Spotify’s RapCaviar and AllHipHop were also up for the award.
“@bet I didn’t talk my shit last year but I’m talking my shit this year,” Kweli wrote. “@cthagod and @djenvy are on to something here. There is no better hiphop podcast than Peoples Party. Period. We go FAR beyond gossip and click bait and provide actual service to the community.
“I don’t care about awards normally but I have a hard working crew and they deserve recognition. Nobody does the research we do. Nobody asks better questions. NOBODY dives as deep into this culture on a journalistic level as we do.”
