Didn't make it to the BET Awards? Mr. Play was there

UK TO THE USA: Our very-own Anthony 'Play' Douglas, left, with Meek Mill

THIS PAST week I was in LA for the BET Experience and Awards.

What a week of action! It was good seeing the UK represented by the likes of Lady Leshuur, Angel, Daps (video director), Abrantee, Mo Da Comedian, Don't Jealous Me and Latasha - they didn't let us down and neither did Stormzy, who won Best International Act, Europe.

I caught up with Miss USA, AKA Kara McCullough. Ain't gonna lie, on TV she's nice, but in person... she's 100 times more beautiful.

I also caught up with some of my boys Rotimi (Dre from Power), Trevor Jackson, Kap G and Post Malone.

Over the weekend I caught up with the Meek Mill and Migos beef. The so-called 'Meek' Mill was putting in promo work for the Against All Odds tour with Yo Gotti (really wish this tour would come to the UK) when he allegedly jumped Safaree. Meek Mill cleared up a few things during our conversation... Did Meek Mill personally touch Safaree? No. Did Safaree think he could talk trash about Meek without Meek's boys checking him? What would your people do? People need to realise that just because guys leave the street to better themselves, it doesn't mean they can't turn back on the 'street mode' real quick. You know the saying... You can take the man out of the street, but you can't take the street out of the man. What I will say, is if it was a one-on-one fight with Meek and Safaree, I reckon Safaree could take it based on the training he does, but Meek (and his boys) will never leave it like that... #Fact.

Next up... Joe Budden and Migos.

It seems like Joe has been looking for one of these southern rappers to 'check him' for a while. I've seen him take shots at Lil Yachty and a few other new skool artists, dissing their rap style, saying it's "mumble rap". Joe must have thought they were all soft... In the interview DJ Akademiks asked Takeoff why he had been taken off Migos' hit song Bad and Boujee. I was next to them when it kicked off and Joe Budden's team just kept saying, "Chill, chill, chill."

So what happened...? When Akademiks asked the question, Migos didn't answer. At that point Akademiks should/could have left it alone, but nooooo... he just kept on asking and asking and asking, at which point Budden got p***ed, got up and walked off, in doing so he dropped his mic, which came across as very disrespectful and Migos took it that way. As Joe walked off, all three members of Migos were seen squaring up to Budden, while a voice off camera is desperately heard pleading, “Chill, chill, chill.” Mad t'ing. LOL.

And before people ask, yes, I heard about the skirmish between Migos and Chris Brown but I didn't see it soooooooooooo - let's forget all this beef between rappers.

I went to a paarrttaay over the weekend! As a promoter I find it hard to go out and be entertained, but I went to TI and Facet's mansion party in the Hollywood Hills. Three words Oh. My. God! I have never been to a party like this in my life. So many A-list Celebs and beautiful women in lingerie, I thought I was in one of Diddy's music videos. You had Chris Brown and Trey Songz and models Tori Brixx and Bernice Burgos to name a few. I'm hearing Facet may be planning one of these parties in the UK around carnival time.
