News: BET Bans Rick Ross’ “Hold Me Back” Music Video
BET is holding back Rick Ross’ “Hold Me Back” music video. Director Taj tweeted about the ban late last night.
“So BET rejected Ross’ “Hold Me Back” video. It’s incredibly sad, because the video is incredibly special & real. You’re killing US BET. Smh,” he tweeted. “Everybody ask BET why it’s ok for them to play “Boyz N the Hood”, “Menace to Society”, and “South Central”, but not Ross’ video. RT RT RT What does BET stand for? You should have two answers for that question,” he continued.
The “Hold Me Back” music video was shot in New Orleans’ Calio Projects. BET was supposed to debut the video a few days ago. Reasons for their rejection are unknown. Watch behind the scenes footage of the “Hold Me Back” video shoot here.
BET isn’t scared to pull the plug on music videos. If you remember, they also refused to play Nicki Minaj’s “Stupid Hoe” music video.
