I trust he'll bring it when it comes to the performance. I hope it's an event and opens some eyes to his true talent as an emcee.  It's good to see him on an award show and for it to be BET. The new single better stand out. Hopefully he releases it right after the performance.

Finally a reason for me to watch an award show lol seriously this is great news i can't even imagine what the song is going to be like and it's lyrics but i think FP has alot to get of his chest and what better way through his music can i just point out it's been over a decade since Lost and Found and were getting a new single and album almost doesn't feel real.
