Russell Simmons made an important call to BET to persuade them to move the date of the BET Hip-Hop Awards, and they have agreed.
The hip-hop mogul tried to get the network to move the awards show from airing on the original October 10th date in honor of “Justice or Else,” which is the anniversary of the Million Man March.
A source revealed to AllHipHop:
“Russell Simmons made a high level call to a BET executive respectfully requesting a date change due to “Justice Or Else” and BET mutually obliged and changed the date to October 9th.”
