Donewaiting x BET’s “The Deal” aka Wes Flexner on Black Entertainment Television

While the buzz is still in the air from last night’s BET Awards, I figure now is the perfect time to announce this:

I’m gonna be on BET’s the Deal in Mid-July. This is the start of Donewaiting and the Deal working together.

The Deal has a segment called “Blog About it. Be About it” which I’ll be on. If you aren’t familiar with the Deal, well, it airs every weeknight 3am on Black Entertainment Television. The Deal basically covers superstars like Snoop Dog, up and comers like Curren$y, as well dabbles in grafftiti like Dez, and anything here or there involving Hip Hop culture.

It’s like if Rap Cityor Yo!MTV Raps had worked out how wacky Hip Hop is these day instead of just having to make sense of Def Jam and Ruthless Records.

My first on air appearance will be in Mid July. I’ll post the exact date when they give me it. It that segment I discuss Columbus Hip Hop and graffiti, past, present and future. I recorded the segment with James from Electraplay.

From there, I’m going to profile Ohio and Midwest rappers from time to time on the program. So, if things work out, we are sitting in a position to put our city on a larger stage. The segments will be like Big Tigger meets Wayne’s World with hopefully a little Charlie Rose/Tavis Smiley on top.

So expect some cross-over between BET’s “The Deal” and Donewaiting. Don’t worry we will still cover Rock musicks and other things of the nature. This is a perfect fit with the amount of love Hip Hop and Indie Rock have for each other right now: Blakroc, B.O.B. sampling Vampire Weekend, Jay-z/Grizzly Bear, everyone loves Radiohead etc

To get familiar with the show, please tune-in this week. Here are some highlights:
