    Oh and BN, since you reported on Terrence why didn’t you also report on the black man Keith who was shot while supposedly reading a book? Oh let me guess, because the cop who did the shooting is black as h***. ?

      That one just pissed me the h**l off, apparently we don’t a race problem as much as we have a cop problem, this isn’t the first time a black cop has shot a black man this year. As is type Charlotte is a state of emergency because BLM have come out and are vandalising and attacking everything that looks white, what started as a peaceful protest last night just escalated to something else. Meanwhile the killer is a fellow black man and not white. I can’t even deal anymore.

    My vote must count o:
    1. Pheelz – Abule Sowo
    2. Mystro – Awele
    the rest, whatever you like.

    Please correct “Calarence Peter” , Clarence Peters is like the #1 music video name and it doesn’t look good for the Beatz people if it’s misspelled.
