Blind Fury protesting BET and “106 & Park”

Over the past eleven years, “106 & Park” has become the premier destination for all urban entertainers. As the show evolved, the large viewership has remained the same. Regardless of the new programs that enter the BET schedule, “106 & Park” remains the flagship show of the network. The impact of “106” is so widespread that the show has built a few stars. A.J. Calloway, currently a reporter for “Extra,” is still best-known for co-hosting “106 & Park” with Free.

Blind Fury is among the stars created from his appearances on “106 & Park.” The blind rapper has won the “Freestyle Friday” competition too many times to count. His popularity has led Blind Fury to become a fixture with the BET network. In October 2011, Blind Fury was included in the BET Hip Hop Awards, going to Atlanta for the show. It was during this time when fans learned of some controversy involving some of the BET personalities.

In 2006, Rocsi, along with Terrence J, were named the new hosts of “106 & Park.” Since being added to the show, Rocsi has become a bit of a sex symbol with the men. There have been rumors of her being involved with several rappers and rappers tend to flirt with her when they appear on “106 & Park.” For the most part, this all appears to be a part of the game played, but this is not the case with Webbie. During his final appearance on the show, he came on to Rocsi and told her, in private, about his size, below the belt.

Those comments led to Webbie being banned from “106 & Park” and Webbie denies seriously coming on to Rocsi. It appears as if Blind Fury has sided in this matter and he is siding with Mr. Savage Life. Blind Fury has decided to speak on the situation, as he is boycotting BET and the show which made him famous, “106 & Park.” Recently, Blind Fury discussed the situation with Futuristic Blogger.
