Katt Williams To Host The 1st Annual BET Hip-Hop Awards
Funnyman Katt Williams has agreed to host the first annual BET Hip-Hop Award Show, being held this November in Atlanta, GA.
Williams has enjoyed a successful run of recent comedic appearances on BET, having performed on BET's "Comic View," BET's "Rip the Runway" 2006 and the 2005 and 2006 BET Comedy Awards, as well as presenting an award at last month's 2006 BET Awards . Now the popular star of MTV improv show "Wild N Out" can also add host of the first annual BET Hip-Hop Award Show to that list.
Since 2001, the popular cable network has offered its BET Awards Show, however now the network has determined to pay homage to the genre of hip-hop with an evening of awards and performances, acknowledging the impact of hip-hop on American culture. The Hip-Hop Award Show will be taped at The Fox Theatre (660 Peachtree Street NE) on November 12th and telecast on BET on Wednesday, November 15th at 8pm. It will re-air on November 22nd at 8pm.
In related news, in addition to his current film role in the Eddie Murphy Dreamworks film Norbit and a soon-to be released rap album It's Pimpin on Cam'ron's Diplomat Records, Katt Williams has announced plans for his new line of clothing SPS (Secret Pimp Society). (continue)
Before you ask, yes that is a Diplomat chain. This sounds like a hot mess waiting to explode . . . and damn it I may just go for front row action! I guess since The Source's ship is sanking fast, BET decided to move in for the hip hop audiences.
Use don't abuse (ie. adding me to your site's mailing list). And for the love of God please stop sending mp3 files of your music. I am not Clive Davis and to be frank I probably don't want to hear the shit anyway. You should also know that I take my slow, precious time responding to email. And sometimes I don't respond at all.
