Apr 2 - AJ of 106 & Park blasts BET Music Videos
 

 
ORANGEBURG, S.C. - The former co-host of BET's popular "106 & Park" show blasts what he calls the destructive messages of many of the show's most popular music videos.

A.J. Calloway co-hosted the show for five years with Free, whose given name is Marie Wright. Both left the show in July.

"I couldn't watch my own show with my niece on my lap," Calloway said this past week at South Carolina State University as part of the "Black Student Today" panel. The discussion focused on the impact of hip-hop music.

"Pick your five favorite songs," Calloway said. "Write down every word that's in your favorite songs. Read it back to yourself and think about what that has put into your head."

Calloway told the university audience he had vowed that after facing racism while growing up in New Jersey he would "never do anything against my race."

"I felt like I was hurting us by doing what I was doing," he said.

Its people like him that got white people scared of rap. They start thinkin... "If he's black, and he thinks its negative... It has to be immoral!"

Just a side note... but he prolly couldn't watch sesame street with his neice in his lap because his sh*t locks would block her view.

He has a good point about the videos on the show. 106 and park fell off ever since Free and AJ left.

Is he saying thats the reason behind him getting Fired or what, and I also like the "never do anything against my race" after he already hosted, like the videos were morally better when was hosting the show......

definately agree with him 110%. he basically is saying that the music promoted by BET, MTV is trash and that it isn't showing hip hop in its most positive light.

tell that n*gga to shut the hell up. hte reason he left is cause they wouldn't give em that money he felt he deserved. If he would have got that exec producer credit he wanted like Carson daly got on TRL. He would have payed laffy taffy and fu*ken t-bag that ho if they get a video and smiled about it.

I never heard him big up no promsiing uplifting rap acts on 106 and park when htey came on he would look like he knew nothing about them.

I completely disagree with AJ for even commenting on the situation of the videos, If he felt that strongly about it I don't see how he could have done the videos for five years, and never even threw a sign to all the artists that he interviewed about how he felt, he is speaking some truth, but to down rate a African-American program after they fired him, and to continue to shed light on a already looked down upon African-American network is trash, and he should have kept those comments to himself.

Like Fab said, "crying ova bi*ches is the same sh*t that got A.J deaded".

AJ is a bi*ch. fu*k yall mean he speaking the truth. n*gga was there for 5 years, introducing the same type of videos he's talking sh*t about now, from the same artists he interviewed for 5 years. Now he wants to front like he left because of the type of videos they were playing on 106 and not because of a bi*ch he probally neva even fu*ked.

We know why he left. n*gga was on tv promoting these videos, having a good ole time wit the artist on the show, and at sh*t like spring bling, but now he wants to try and tell us how bad the music is and how disrespectful it is to us African American. Like he dont play the same music at all the so called parties he claims to throw all the time.

AJ need to get the fu*k outta here wit dat. BET is whack, it was whack then, and its whack now, but n*gga need to stop trying to front. AJ is a real clown for this one.

n*gga had to choose BET or Free, and the dumbass left his job ova a bi*ch, and now he mad.

I Agree 100%. Although, he might have a point with the 5 favorite song lyrics thing cause I have a niece too an a son of my own and when I hear them singing some of the lyrics out there its definitely some traight forward ish. But he does look funny sayin it AFTER he got canned.
