After a 14 year long run, “106 & Park” will make it’s last televised appearance tonight. The live music video countdown program will be moving to it’s new home on a digital format on BET.com.
Over the 14 years the show has seen numerous amount of hosts, guest, celebrities, performances and freestyles. Lets take a look down memory lane.
Dynamic duo A.J and Free, who we all loved, originally hosted the show for a 5 year period. On August 1, 2005 Julissa Bermudez and Big Tigger temporarily replaced AJ and Free until Terrence J began to co host with Julissa. The Summer of 2006, BET held a nationwide search BET New Faces Contest, for the next hosts of 106 & Park which landed Terrence J and Rocsi their new jobs. In 2012 Rocsi and Terrence announced they would be retiring from the big comfy couch. Fall of 2012, the new hosts were announced which included, Bow Wow, Shorty Da Prince, Paigion and Miss Mykie. In 12 years for the first time the show had four hosts. Shortly after, Shorty Da Prince, Paigion and Miss Mykie departed the show leaving Bow Wow a permanent host. On October 1, 2013 Bow Wow was joined by Toroto native Keshia Chante as the official co host.
Despite moving to a new format you can still catch 106 and Park specials around New Years and hosting the BET awards red carpet show.
BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen Hill announced in a statement that the show will transition digitally giving the fans a more interactive experience. Here’s what he had to say
We all have our favorite moments from the show that has put youth culture on television daily since the first year of this century. We have pride in being involved with the show that has welcomed almost every movie star, music superstar and fresh-faced talent you can name (you can even throw in a first lady). We’ve all laughed with and been entertained by the young men and women hosts that have charmed us at 6 p.m. (and more recently 5 p.m.) each weekday.
All of us have been touched by 106 & Park.
Now it’s time for 106 & Park, as a daily TV entity, to take a bow and exit.
It’s been a great 14-year run as America’s top music/variety show on cable. And now that very valuable brand is going to take its talents to the digital realm. The interactive brand you helped build, 106 & Park, is alive and well…and it’s moving to the space in which our audience NOW interacts with music the most: online. It’ll be very exciting to connect with the millions of people that are already engaged with 106 & Park and other BET digital and social media entities and bring content that will further evolve the 106 & Park brand — and enhance the overall BET Networks brand. As we transition to the digital space, we look to continue 106 & Park‘s role as both a leader of and a mirror to youth culture. We’ll have more information to share about how that is to roll out very soon
Looks like things with Queen of rap Nicki Minaj and
husband Safaree “SB” Samuels just got a whole lot messier. Reportedly the two have been together for 15 years until recently a messy breakup happened.
Remember back 3 years ago a 911 phone call was placed and leaked from a hotel by an employee who alleged that Nicki had just got hit in the face by her boyfriend ? Well, now rumor has it that the two were involved in another violent heated argument over the summer.
According to TMZ, Nicki and ex husband SB got into a heated augmented that quickly escalated consequently leading Nicki to grabbing a baseball bat and chased SB out the house. Thats when she reportedly destroyed her own 2013 Mercedes Benz that she loaned him before pulling a Waiting To Exhale move throwing his clothes in the garbage. Police were called but no arrest were made since he car was actually Nicki’s, however SB was escorted out of the house. Since the altercation SB has covered up his Nicki tattoos and the two are no longer together.
As of now Nicki nor SB has confirmed or denied these allegations.

LJ returned the love on his own IG page by sharing a collection of pictures the two of then took with the caption “A new feel , 11/2/14“
In the past Jessie J has been open about her relationship with women, however earlier in the year she wrote an essay to her fans admitting it was just a phase and she’s always dated men.
I was getting increasingly frustrated with still feeling like sexuality was defining me as an artist.Behind closed doors I am evolving into the woman I want to be forever, wanting a husband and kids one day and dreaming up my future just like everyone else. Yet I go to work and it was like people were 3 years behind and wanted me to be something I’m not.
Cute couple, congrats you too !
If you were not on social media last night, by now you have heard about the shots fired between Chris Brown, girlfriend Karrueche Tran, Tamar Braxton and

The wait is finally over . . . its been a long time coming Teyana Taylor’s debut album Vll dropped today and needless to say it was worth the wait.
Some of you may remember back in back in 2007 when Teyana was featured on MTV’s
“My Super Sweet 16” and was taking under the wing of Pharrell Williams leading her to sign with his Star Trak label. Things started off on the right track for the singer, however in 2012 the two went their separate ways and Teyana signed a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music.
After a public altercation with singer Rihanna, losing her Adidas sneaker deal and ending a long term relationship with NBA baller Brandon Jennings, it’s no wonder why Tey has a lot to be thankful for.
“It’s been seven years and everything is finally coming together at once … It just reminds me of when they say God puts you through so much to get you prepared for a big blessing.”
She stated during a interview with HipHollywood.
Her 14 track album features artist such as Chris Brown, Fabolous, Pusha T and Yo Gotti. Vll is available for purchase and can be streamed below !
