RECAP: BET’s Hustle In Brooklyn Comes to Atlanta

Atlanta is a place known for its diverse heritage, hospitality, soul food, and trap music, truly embodying southern culture. Last night, BET Networks brought “the A” some Brooklyn flavor to familiarize the market with the network’s newest reality series, “Hustle In Brooklyn.”

The BK vibe was recreated at the event as BET converted Atlanta hotspot Terminus 330 to a scene reminiscent of a Brooklyn neighborhood. The room was decorated with a brownstone stoop, a bodega with “Hustle In Brooklyn” magazines featuring the cast, street lights and signs, newspaper stands and New York City metro cards with the “Hustle In Brooklyn” logo. To complete the Brooklyn décor, specialty cocktails ‘Notorious’ and ‘Nutcrackers’ were served, and New York-based DJ Lindsey kept the party moving on the ones and twos.

Speaking to the crowd, cast members SantosDarnell and Azia talked about their individual passions, what makes Brooklyn such a special place, and their excitement about the show. Azia, an aspiring rapper and singer, performed two of her original tracks, “Brooklyn Girl” and “3000,” that electrified the crowd.

Hustle In Brooklyn” airs Tuesdays at 10/9c pm on BET.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
