Are YOU an aspiring actor or rapper? BET is holding an open casting call during their 2019 BET Experience.
During the BET Experience this June 20th through 23rd in Los Angeles, California, BET will be holding a long list of events including the “Next Rap Star” and “Casting Call”.
Next Rap Star
The Next Big Rap Star could be you! In this exclusive competition, six finalists of the Next Rap Star online competition (or in-person audition) will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show off their rap skills to a variety of industry professionals at BETX 2019. Not only will participants have a chance to perform at next year’s BET Fan Experience 2020, but could also be the recipient of a sweet EP deal with Island Records. Prepare to Lose Yourself in the moment, and start brainstorming those lyrics!
BET is on the hunt for young new faces to put on the air. If you don’t have good-enough rap skills for the Next Rap Star competition, but know your way around a script, there’s still a place for you! Come show off your acting expertise to an esteemed panel of casting directors and BET executives, who just may select you to join the cast of a new BET movie, TV show, or commercial.

Are you looking to get inspired and motivated? Now in their sixth year, the BET Genius Talks segment continues to be one of the most motivational and viral events of the BET Fan Fest, bringing together deep conversations about today’s biggest stars. Past year’s talks have touched on subjects such as the School to Prison Pipeline (Pusha T, Angela Rye), #BlackGirlMagic and self-love (Tracee Ellis Ross), and general driving tips for success (Yvonne Orji). This year it will include Boomerang producer Lena Waithe, “grown-ish” star Yara Shahidi (featured above), and “Little” star Marsai Martin as they chat about their personal successes and losses alongside moderator Jemele Hill.
