Premiering Wednesday, November 15, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the stage is set for the "BET Hip-Hop Awards" to be an electrifying evening of non-stop entertainment, celebrating the history and culture of hip-hop music.
Elevating the star presence at Atlanta's Fox Theatre is red-hot host, comedian/actor Katt Williams
. Although hosting an awards show -- particularly one with this caliber of talent -- is no easy gig, Katt says he's up for the challenge. Perhaps best known for his scene-stealing turn as Money Mike in Friday After Next
and his recent HBO stand-up comedy special "The Pimp Chronicles, Part 1," Williams will lace the historic event with his edgy, brash and hilarious flavor.
