The 2019 BET Experience at L.A. Live string of weekend events has been announced and it looks like Hip-Hop rivals Nicki Minaj and Cardi B are headlining!
According to Billboard, BET has announced that several concerts will be held June 20 through June 22 at the Staples Center. The four-day event will showcase the best in culture, music and entertainment, providing interactive and ticketed events at the BET Fan Fest at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which includes a celebrity basketball game, celebrity meet and greets and seminars.
The 7th annual BET Experience presented by Coca-Cola is being held days before the 2019 BET Awards which is happening in Los Angeles on June 23rd. The first day is kicking off with some of today’s hottest artist such as the “Chun-Li” rhymer Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, Trippie Redd and Bri Steves are set to perform on June 21. While the “Money” hitmaker Cardi B, Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby and City Girls will be performing on June 22.
It was a smart move for the black entertainment power house to book the two rivals on separate days. The the bad blood between Nicki and Cardi, reached its boiling point last September during New York Fashion Week when Cardi allegedly threw a shoe at the “Queen” femcee. Although they appeared to end things on a peaceful note, there seems to still be some lingering tension surrounding them.
But this is Entertainment and the show must go on!
V.I.P. tickets for the BET Experience are on sale now and general tickets go on sale Friday (February 1). Additional dates and performers will be announced at a later date.
