This year the BET Experience in L.A. Live is turning up on the old and new school talent. One of the most anticipated events this year includes the seven artist roster with OutKast, A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross, K. Michelle, Ty Dolla $ign, August Alsina and hosted by the man known for “We Da Best” DJ Khaled. The superstar lineup will perform Saturday, June 28.
With the party starting at 7 p.m., the night will be full of classic and the latest Hip Hop and R&B. Big Boi and André 3000 will come together once again as OutKast, hopefully kicking out those famous classic “Rosa Parks” and “Ms. Jackson.”
R&B Artist K. Michelle is new to the BET experience this year. Michelle is on the reality series Love and Hip Hop New York. She has been on tour this year, and her latest singles “V.S.O.P” and “Can’t Raise A Man” are sure to be on her list of hits to do. K. Michelle will also be starring in a spinoff reality show of her life later this year called “No New Friends.”
New artist Ty Dolla $ign has made a name for himself since signing to Atlantic and Taylor Gang records back in 2011. The Hip Hop freshman is known for his smooth and seductive lyrics and his claim to fame started with a feature on YG’s famous hit “Toot It and Booted.”
Asap Rocky will be headlining the performance alongside Rick Ross and OutKast for the evening. Since A$AP’s first album released Live. Love. ASAP in 2011, the Harlem native has received a clear stamp of approval in the music industry. His latest single Goldie was nominated for an MTV Award in 2012 and his latest hit, “Fuckin’ Problems” won Best Collaboration at the 2013 BET Awards and Best Hip-Hop Video for the MTV Video Music Awards Japan. A$AP is also making serious moves into the fashion world, releasing his women’s clothing line ASVPXVIXEN from Barcelona.
Another freshman on the performance ticket is Def Jam recording artist August Alsina. Alsina is known for his single “I Luv This Shit’ with Trinidad James. He is most recently noticed for his hanging stunt on Instagram Friday. Alsina posted a photo of himself hanging from a noose and proceeded to post the pic for his fans; needless to say, no one was the least bit impressed with his actions.
