Talk about the power of words, just last fall Rapper Detroit Che tweeted 2013 would be her last year watching the BET Hip Hop Awards from home.
After working hard all year she entered and won Sprite’s #HOT16 contest to land a slot on the 2014 Cypher.
Detroit Che swagged through the BET Hip Hop Awards green carpet, flashing her customized Red Wings jersey that paid tribute to Renisha McBride. McBride was a 19-year-old who was shot by a homeowner who claimed to believe her to be an intruder on November 2, 2013, in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. In actuality she was seeking help knocking on Theodore Wafer’s door after she crashed her car on a nearby street. Her shooting garnered national out cry after Detroit Che took to the streets and internet to rally supporters who felt the shooting to be unjust.
The 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards airs on BET Tuesday, October 14th at 8P/7C hosted by Uncle Snoop, aka Snoop Dogg.
