        No you stop…

        You know it downgrades someone when you give them someone Else’s nickname. Brandy is truly one of a kind, call her B Rocker. (I might had called her a flop and her not having success after the age 20, but I give respect and props when needed.)

      • beautifuldisaster89 October 14, 2014

        I can respect that BUT I may not agree with that whole flop and credit due stuff but whatever lol

    Brandy is such a has been and way too overrated for me.

    • Mark111 October 14, 2014

      Irony on the overrated part.

    • I see u October 15, 2014

      Stop trolling as a beyonce fan Molly

  7. BeyRihLiyah October 14, 2014

    they all shut this performance down this is a classic song I love this performance

  8. Mark111 October 14, 2014

    One, Brandy is so pretty. Love her eyes. Two, the fact that these ladies can still perform and rap clearly and raps sound better than today’s is just amazing. Three, the fact that this remix/song and Brandy’s career is 20 years old is crazy. 1994 was a banging year, Brandy, Aaliyah, TLC’s hot albums, The Lion King, Forest Gump and the Mask. Retro SNES and Sega consoles. Tv shows were awesome, Family Matter, Martin, Sister Sister, Fresh Prince. WHAT?!Classic time.

    • Cap October 15, 2014

  11. Stephy October 15, 2014

    I really enjoyed the show. I was cracking up @ Snoop Dog dancing on that last performance. I was dying. I loved this lil performance with these LEGENDARY women. They all killed-T it. Brandy sounded & looked good too.

    The Show was overall ghetto, ratchet & entertaining. I was lol most of the time.

  12. metzo October 15, 2014

    loved it!!

  13. Indie October 15, 2014


  14. amina October 15, 2014

    BRANDY IS THE THUTH P.E.R.I.O.D!!! Am i wrong? So effortless, so everything…

    Mc lyte slay!!!
    Yoyo slay!!!
    Queen Latifah slay!!!

    It was the good old time and it’s refreshing i love to see women perform together. I love that!!!

  15. Rachel October 15, 2014

    Wait what I admit I been sleeping on brandy but I love her new grown up deep rich voice and her runs are soooo dreamy like for real they were just flowing out like butter lol. They did the damn thing and had the best performance of the night everything else was too ghetto with backtrack. The older singers and rappers are just a different breed. 20 years and they all still look amazing. Brandy fans any songs u suggest me to listen to other than her never say never songs

    • Rihboy October 15, 2014

      Pretty much all! My faves are no such thing as too late, do you know, hardly breathing, music from her album 2/11

    • RCI.Keem October 15, 2014

      Definitely. Listen to all her albums after Never Say Never for sure, AND listen to some of her unreleased music: “Silent Night”, “Open”, “After The Flood”, Ect. It’s A LOT.

      As for the performance.. I literally sat through this whole show

    • Morgan Celine October 15, 2014

      I really like the full moon album: come a little closer, can we, when you touch me, nothing and apart are some or the best

  16. Rihboy October 15, 2014

    B rocka!! Oh how I miss her!

  17. Sharon October 15, 2014

    LEGENDS AND PERFECTION. Thank u BET loved it

  18. KIM4MAYOR October 15, 2014


  19. MisdamenorFan October 15, 2014

    This gave me chills! I love it!

  20. Morgan Celine October 15, 2014

    OMG yesssss brandy still got it!!! Everybody did there thing! Queen Latifah is the s***, Yoyo kept it grown and classy and MC Lyte destroyed as usual. It was a great moment for hip hop. 20 years have passed and they all look great. Black don’t crack!!

  21. WTF October 15, 2014

    These ladies are Hip Hop and have flow unlike Shittie Manja now kids hear the difference and do your homework on hip hop before you claim that Shittie Manja is hip hop and has flow and this was all LIVE!

  22. Rita Bot October 15, 2014

    4 FLOPS

  23. Love October 15, 2014

    Brandy’s VOICE! Insane! She is so gifted! I have a feeling she’s going to be belting a lot of her songs in her next album. When she’s in full voice she’s untouchable! When she’s in her lower register she’s unstoppable. She can literally do anything with that instrument of hers. This performance was great and it was so refreshing to see a bunch of CLASSY ladies on a hip hop stage. I surely got my life with this one.

  24. 4everStar October 15, 2014

    Brandy gave me everything in this performance! I’m so excited for her next album! QUEEN B the original!

  25. SMH October 15, 2014

    20 years, and Brandy still looks a hot mess.

    • R&B Queen Aaliyah October 15, 2014

      She’s SO overrated, that b**** sounded like smokey the bear..on top of that, she’s ugly as hell.

      • Rowland October 15, 2014


      • I said it. October 15, 2014

        I wouldn’t say she’s ugly, she’s just not too cute, and yes, she is overrated

  26. Rowland October 15, 2014

    I love b rocka. She is a true gem. She still sounds pristine after twenty years in the game! These ladies are the definition of talent and longevity. No matter how commercial brandy may be now, she’s still here, still working and still performing her ass off! Kudos ladies! You killed!!

  27. I said it. October 15, 2014

    I see she’s Beyonce inspired with the Flawless video attire.

    • Slaymar October 15, 2014

      Like BeyBOON was inspired by Rihs pour it up shorts?

      • M October 17, 2014

        The difference is that Flawless was filmed around the time Pour it Up came out and those shorts were just one of many costumes in Pour it Up, so it’s easier to believe in coincidence whereas Beyoncé’s plaid was her only Flawless costume and she continued that look onto her tour as well. Thus, it’s more distinct to her.

        Nothing in this world will be seen as completely original, but if you make something your own then it’s easier to say it was a copy.

    • beautifuldisaster89 October 15, 2014

      Ummm honey that shirt is from the I wanna be down video lol

      • M October 17, 2014

        Uh, no it’s not. She wore a red plaid jacket in one scene. Not the same.

  28. asipofbrandy October 15, 2014
