Bow Wow wants to revive “106 & Park” — and the Twitterverse has A LOT of feelings!
It all started early Monday when a fan pitched to the “Beware of Dog” rapper — and a former co-host of “106 & Park” — that he should either be the president of BET or, at the very least, an exec.
In response, the musician said he wants to create content for the network, including a reboot of their hit music video show!
My only dream job now is i want to take over BET. I want a high position. I was blessed to host but NOW i want an office. I want to run and come up with content for the network. I know what they missing. All you have to do is LISTEN to the people.— Bow Wow (@smoss) December 14, 2020
Because BET means so much to me. Hit helped launch careers. Its sad to see where they at. Its sad to see celebs not caring about the awards. Its said that THEY ALWAYS GET TROLLED CONSTANTLY. I see whats missing. They are NOT LISTENING TO THE VIEWERS. it starts there. https://t.co/zqimZJCBEk— Bow Wow (@smoss) December 14, 2020
My dream list for BET:— Bow Wow (@smoss) December 14, 2020
Rap city is back - hosted by SMACK
106& Park is back - digitally and tv
Since we in a virual world why not bring back Cita but revamped.
Im def bringing back - UNCUT (online only)
And should we bring back college hill?
Plus more shows and content.
Launched in 2000, the program — whose name was derived from the original studio location at East 106th Street and Park Avenue in New York — was initially hosted by A.J. Calloway and Marie “Free” Wright.
After years of casting swaps, Bow Wow became co-host in 2012 until the show’s cancellation in 2014.
Among his proposed changes, the MC wants the show to be shot in Atlanta, Georgia, as “business is booming” in the southern city despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Bringing 106&Park to Atlanta! Its time for a new energy its time we move with the culture. 106&Park must be shot in ATL now. The pandemic hit nyc is shut down. Business is booming here. All the celebs are here. That would be my 1st major move. LIVE AUDIENCE! On tv and Stream live— Bow Wow (@smoss) December 14, 2020
The 33-year-old also said he doesn’t want to host the potential reboot — he simply wants to work behind the scenes.
Im NOT HOSTING A THING! Ima be in the office! Making things happen. For the people! Ive done the hosting thing for them. Im in a suit when i show up for work. https://t.co/dw18Z8Plm9— Bow Wow (@smoss) December 14, 2020
My first mission is to bring back 106&Park! If @bet decides to take this meeting with me... who would yall want to host ?— Bow Wow (@smoss) December 14, 2020
After Bow Wow’s tweets went viral, a number of fans expressed their excitement!
“I hope bow wow brings 106 n park back,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Bow wow tryna bring back 106 & park again and I’m wit it!” another added.
However, some felt that it would be difficult to recreate the hit show’s magic.
“Don’t bring it back let it go,” one Instagram user wrote.
“106 and park will NOT be the same,” another added.
If BET does bring back “106 & Park” and films it in Atlanta, many fans believe it should be renamed due to its new location.
“It cant be called 106&park then if its being brought to Atlanta...yall gon have to rename that,” one IG user noted.
“It’s called 106 park for a reason not peach street,” a commenter said.
“Wasn’t it 106 & Park because it was located on 106 & Park and not 106 & Peachtree,” another added.
