Motivational-speaker-turned-BET-commentator Jeff Johnson gives network president Stephen Hill his props. “He’s the only reason I’m on television. He really believed in me at a time when there wasn’t anybody doing social commentary on video shows,” he tells Make It Happen host Melissa Dawn Johnson. “Stephen’s introduction to Rap City opened the doors to a legitimate journalism career, when I’d never taken a journalism class, never gone to journalism school. But what I was passionate about was giving people information for the purpose of empowering them. And, again, it was only because I had a level of integrity to that passion—with all the mistakes I made in my personal life and even in my professional life, I still had a commitment to doing what it was I believe God put me on earth to do.”
