Great Moments in Negro History – Bobby Brown Will ‘Fuck You Up on Live TV!’

Listen, if you are an 80s baby, you know during the late 80s and early 90s Bobby Brown was THAT NIGGA! Stepping out from New Edition, he was the original bad boy of R&B. From his influential “Gumby” hair cut to his slew of hit singles to his marriage to the incomparable Whitney Houston to two multi-platinum albums, it’s safe to say Bobby had a helluva a run.

But Bobby’s foray into reality TV gave us even more reasons to love him. Perhaps some of us didn’t realize how  hood the Roxbury-bred crooner really is. In case you never knew, forgot or just want to a refresher, let’s recap his top 3 moments on reality TV which have become great even if infamous moments in negro history.

 

Your boy dropped his coke on an MTV stage, scooped it up and kept performing.

Listen, I ain’t about that narcotic life. I got my own vices, though, and if a chicken wing fell outta my pocket while I was performing, best believe I’m scooping my shit up. Just so happens Bobby had his goodies in his pocket ready to get that hit immediately after leaving the stage and he wasn’t about to let a few million eyes stop his fun.

Bobby and Nippy got their negro love ass lives dancing in the middle of a store on their reality show.

If you thought seeing this man rubbing Preparation H under his eyes to remove bags was outrageous, you ain’t seen shit. When his wife entered gift shop to inquire as to whether he liked the sunglasses she’d selected, the negroest impromptu song and dance routine possible ensued. And we loved that shit.

 

Bobby had to let a white man who thought making a rape joke was the move know that he would fuck his ass up.

Listen, if nothing else, I don’t play about people threatening, joking about, or any way making light of rape. So the fact that this man thought that shit made for good TV is stomach-turning. But Bobby reached right back to them Roxbury days and let him know that he could get that two-piece, hold the biscuit even as them cameras rolled.

 

We stan a true R&B king!
