Until then, here are three of our favorite moments from 2016.
Hillary Clinton visits “The Breakfast Club”
During the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton was steaming hot on the campaign trail. She visited countless news publications and outlets to get the word out that she was the best candidate for the next president of the United States of America, as she ran against her opponent Donald Trump. Thought Trump ended up winning the campaign, Clinton’s visit to “The Breakfast Club” was a really insightful one that opened up many young people’s eyes in regards to the future of the country.
Concert Series with Gucci Mane”
Gucci Mane held a lit “Gucci Mane & Friends” concert in 2016 that was exclusively live-streamed on REVOLT TV and REVOLT TV’s YouTube channel. To say that the performance was fire would be an understatement. The countless people in the crowd absolutely loved the set, as Guwop spit some of his hits from his years-long career. It was definitely one of the best homecoming parties that we’ve ever witnessed before. After his stint in prison, Gucci was finally free!
Birdman’s “put some respek on my name” moment on “The Breakfast Club”
Without question, Birdman’s infamous “put some respek on my name,” during his visit at “The Breakfast Club” was one of the most epic moments not only in 2018, but “The Breakfast Club” history! As soon as it aired, social media went into a frenzy with fans reacting to the unrehearsed, shockingly rude incident. The show’s hosts; DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee were even in shock when this all went down. What can we say? The man likes his respek.
