Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz are sure to get the crowd turnt up with songs off of their recent collaboration mixtape, Collegrove, while Usher likely serenades the crowd with his soulful voice. Newcomer Bryson Tiller will showcase his “trap soul,” with funnymen Katt Williams and Mike Epps coming with the jokes.
The festival will take place from June 23 – 26 at three locations — Los Angeles at the Staples Center, the Novo and the Los Angeles Convention Center. The starlit event will also serve as a appetizer for The BET Awards which lands on June 26 at Microsoft Theater.
Although the lineup is pretty exciting, we’re uncertain whether or not Katt Williams will be able to make the stage since he’s been having some pretty bad legal issues lately. He’s been arrested several times in the past few months. Most recently, he was allegedly involved in kidnapping and assault of one of his bodyguards. We hope he can get his jokes together and make us laugh like old times. But, only time will tell.
Tickets for The BET Experience will be available for purchase here when they go on sale on April 1.
