Although the nation was tuned into BET last night (June 25) for the annual BET Awards where we got to see some stellar performances and saw many great people accept their awards for their accomplishments. We also see the award ceremony pay their respects to anyone with the culture of music who has passed away within the year leading into the awards. There was one person who wasn’t with it: Master P. The No Limit honcho hit up his Instagram to shed a little light on Prodigy’s segment of the BET Awards and stated that the change BET made around that moment wasn’t genuine.

The sudden and tragic death of Mobb Deep legend Prodigy forced the BET Awards to rearrange a few things as far as presentations go and for a few minutes as a show of respect, Lil Kim and rapper Havoc, long time friend of Prodigy and 1/2 of Mobb Deep, made their way to the stage to pay their final respects to the fallen soldier.

Here’s what Master P had to say about the whole thing:

“The Truth Hurts…BET Would Have Never Changed Their Show For Prodigy If He Was Still Alive!!,” P wrote of on his Instagram post. “It was a great thing acknowledging and celebrating the life of Prodigy and all of his accomplishments. But It’s a shame that none of these artists are told how great they are while they’re alive. Why can’t they get their flowers and tokens of appreciation while they’re still living? I know the truth hurts.

The Truth Hurts…BET Would Have Never Changed Their Show For Prodigy If He Was Still Alive!! It was a great thing acknowledging and celebrating the life of Prodigy and all of his accomplishments. But It’s a shame that none of these artists are told how great they are while they’re alive. Why can’t they get their flowers and tokens of appreciation while they’re still living? I know the truth hurts. I just have one serious question… Was Prodigy or Mobb Deep on BET’s radar last week… were they invited to the red carpet event, offered guest passes or an invite to perform at the awards show in the last 10 years? I’m willing to bet the answer is NO. I came to support my daughter today on the BET Experience stage but I decided that my family and I will not participate in the red carpet or awards events this year. I love my people and I support them but we really need to do better by each other. We lost a very talented brother, Prodigy. I send my condolences to his family. Hopefully, one day we can start appreciating the talented sisters and brothers while they are still alive. I know that what I am saying may ruffle a few feathers but the truth needed to be heard.
