The interviewer wrote, “[Lenny] noted how it took 10 years to get on Vibe’s “Who’s Who” list and that he’s never been celebrated by BET or Source.”

Lenny is quoted as saying, “To this day, I have not been invited to a BET thing or a Source Awards thing.”

Lenny added, “And it’s like, here is a Black artist who has reintroduced many Black art forms, who has broken down barriers—just like those that came before me broke down. That is positive. And they don’t have anything to say about it?”
