The BET Hip Hop Awards has enlisted comedian, Hangover star and Def Comedy Jam stalwart to host its 2009 ceremony. The show will be taped on Oct. 10 at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center.
“We are very happy to be coming back to ‘The A’ for the fourth go at the BET Hip-Hop Awards,” said Stephen Hill, President of BET’s Music and Programming. “We embrace the opportunity to amplify all aspects of the hip-hop culture; the music, the dance, the sense of community and as we have before, we expect to do so with excitement…and with my man Mike Epps on board as our new host, we’ll do it with reckless abandon. And we don’t stop.”
The show airs Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8 pm. And it’s on BET. Duh.
