It’s the highlight of the #BETX and probably the most anticipated event of the experience: The Celebrity Basketball Game! Every year some of the hottest stars hit the hardwood to show off their skills and score bragging rights. But this year was the most dramatic yet.

We’ll set the scene…

It was the Shot Callers vs. the Ballers and for the first half it looked like Fat Joe’s team (Ballers) of underdogs, lead by Trevor Jackson, would take the W. But before long the Shot Callers, lead by Chris Brown and The Game, tied the score up. And by the end, it all came down to a buzzer beater shot that caused a bit of debate. You have to check out the video below!

Aside from the thrilling basketball game, the BET experience also offered a host of events like their highly anticipated Genius Talks and performances on the Coca-Cola stage. To call it a fun-filled weekend is truly an understatement.

Oh, and the weekend isn’t over. We still have the big show, the BET Awards, Sunday, June 25th at 8/7c on BET. Will you be tuning in?


Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
