VSB Profiled for BET.com’s “Great 28” Black History Month Campaign

BET screenshot


Last month, Damon and I had the pleasure of visiting BET to be interviewed for a Black History Month campaign they’re running called, “Great 28.” Our profile dropped yesterday on BET.com. Thanks to BET for bringing us up and giving us an additional platform to share the VSB word. For the culture, for the community. Peep the video and check out the videos of the awesome other folks who were profiled as well!

And as an added bonus, during that same trip to NYC, Damon ventured to The Root offices and did a video with them, as well, where he explained “Darth Becky.”

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

    BET acknowledging you two is so black. Especially since Jet no longer exist in print form. This is the closest thing to making the cover.

  • mr. steal your costco samples

    the foregoing is all love…

    the screencap makes it look like PJ about half the size of Daymoan — and like the former is asking to squeegee the latter’s windshield for a buck

    • panamajackson

      it’s my hat. my boy told me it made me look homeless chic. i said thank you, Kanye appreciates all compliments about his vision.

      • Janelle Doe

        And I def plan to use homeless chic in the near future.
        So are you guys going to do any cross-country tours?

        • panamajackson

          I’m heading to Atlanta next weekend. Damon will be in Connecticut. We’re going to see what we can do about making some trips to places like Chicago, Houston, etc. We’d like to do more of that stuff.

          • Janelle Doe

            K. Good to know. I will look out for the events in my area.

          • miss t-lee

            If y’all come to Houston y’all better make that sh*t known.

      • miss t-lee

        I was trying to figure out if y’all were actually filming together, or if it was green screen trickery afoot.

        • panamajackson

          naw, we filmed together. shoot, we were damn near touching the entire interview. they had us sitting REAL close together.

          • miss t-lee

            Hahah. Maybe that’s why I thought they edited y’all together, because y’all did look hella close.

  • Vanity in Peril
    • Tam

      Hahaha. We have one that is coming on consistently now spewing her crap.

      • Vanity in Peril

        I fed the trolls about a yr ago. Won’t mk that mistake again

        • Tam

          I have been praying this morning, because Lord knows I was tempted.

    • miss t-lee

      This gif has me so weak.

    • Why does the one with the pink hair look like she should be on late night tv urging me to call a prayer line?

      • miss t-lee

        TBN swag proper.

      • Vanity in Peril

        She got a jar of anointed holy oil with your name on it and all for 3 easy payments of $19.95

      • NonyaB?

        Nah, she was giving me Aunty Cleo vibes, looking like she was about to whip out a crystal ball and predict that the party will be over by 2am.

    • Michelle is my First Lady

      Trolls look scary as heII. And to think I had a ton of them lined up on my school desk.

  • Brooklyn_Bruin

    Y’all been working hard.

    This calls for Kwanzaa in July simultaneous cookout in Pittsburgh and DC! I will bring the halal pork ribs

  • Val

    I could definitely see PJ and Damon having their own tongue in cheek political show on BET. That would be pretty amazing. If it happens make sure Angela Rye is a constant guest on the show.

    Congratulations, guys.

    • panamajackson

      Angela Rye is the homey so I’d make sure to find a way to work the Rye Roll in as much as possible.

      Also, you like how I just named dropped?

      Also, thank you for introducing me to Kadhja Bonet. I’ve literally been listening to that album non-stop since then. You are forever good at any PJ BBQ, funerals, or family reunion cookouts.

      • Val

        Lol Yeah, I noticed and I’m jealous.

        Kadhja is a rare find. Glad to share. :-)

        • L8Comer

          lol I was literally thinking I should thank you again for putting me on this morning. I just put someone else on. Then I went to her SoundCloud and realized there were songs I hadn’t heard yet!! So happy ?

          • Val

            Yeah she has a lot of music out. She’s now one of the few artists I can listen to any time no matter my mood. Glad you like her music too. :-)

            • L8Comer

              Yeah I’m in love lol

          • buy her EP

            • L8Comer

              I did.

            • L8Comer

              I got it the same dame Val put me on. But I just discovered she has songs I haven’t heard before on sound cloud. It’s like Christmas. Those I’ve only seen on band camp. And not even all of them. Can’t find where to buy tears for Lamont…

        • MsSula

          The husband thanks you too. Lol.

      • L8Comer

        Check her sound cloud for songs that aren’t on iTunes.

  • nillalatte
