Master P isn’t pleased about how he feels television network BET treated the late rapper Prodigy, stating that the network should have shown their appreciation while he was alive. On Sunday, July 25 Master P posted a video on Instagram where he proclaimed his disdain for how award shows capitalize on death and forget the life.

Master P’s video was captioned: “The Truth Hurts…BET Would Have Never Changed Their Show For Prodigy If He Was Still Alive!! It was a great thing acknowledging and celebrating the life of Prodigy and all of his accomplishments. But It’s a shame that none of these artists are told how great they are while they’re alive. Why can’t they get their flowers and tokens of appreciation while they’re still living? I know the truth hurts. I just have one serious question… Was Prodigy or Mobb Deep on BET’s radar last week… were they invited to the red carpet event, offered guest passes or an invite to perform at the awards show in the last 10 years? I’m willing to bet the answer is NO. I came to support my daughter today on the BET Experience stage but I decided that my family and I will not participate in the red carpet or awards events this year. I love my people and I support them but we really need to do better by each other. We lost a very talented brother, Prodigy. I send my condolences to his family. Hopefully, one day we can start appreciating the talented sisters and brothers while they are still alive. I know that what I am saying may ruffle a few feathers but the truth needed to be heard.”

Please let us know what you think. Is Master P right? Are artists used up, washed to the side, and only honored again when they’re gone? Watch the clip below and let us know what you think.
