Although the BET Awards mainly focuses on the music, the entity also takes time to shed light on the other entertainers that fill the Black Hollywood realm. Their series titled “Genius Talks” does just that with an intimate conversation with athletes to actors.
For this year’s installment, Kobe Bryant, Floyd Mayweather, Janelle Monae, Erykah Badu and more were interviewed by those well-versed with their careers — ESPN’s Jemele Hill goes toe-to-toe with Bryant, hip hop legend Doug E. Fresh chats with Mayweather, and Combat Jack discusses life with Monae and Badu.
Young actors Brandon T. Jackson, Quincy Brown and Karrueche Tran also got their taste of the hot seat when they were interviewed by Big Tigger about their latest projects.
