Hustle in Brooklyn Launch Party happened this week in Houston. I had the opportunity to hang out and check out some sneak peaks. Thanks to J Mulan and Mikos Adams for the invite!
Hustle in Brooklyn is a new reality series on BET which follows the social and professional lives of inspiring music influencers from New York, including Alicia Gooding, Azia Toussaint, Ron “Baggy Large” Walker, Danielle Rosias, Darnell King, Eva, Ivy Riviera, Jesse Brown, and Santos Garcia.
BET Networks announced the show will be centered around “young and sexy millennials” as they “balance in their professional hustle and personal lives,” according to bet.com.
The show aired immediately after the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, but Two Bees TV caught up with the cast ahead of the show.
Cast members Baggy Large, Ivy, and Azia were asked how growing up in Brooklyn shaped them to be the hustlers that they are today. “It definitely humbled me.” Ivy answered. “It reminds me that you should never forget where you’re from.”
