Mike Epps Tapped To Host BET Hip Hop Awards!

Well, it looks like Katt Williams is out, and Mike Epps is in. Yep, after all of the back stage drama from last year's Hip Hop Awards, we discovered today that comedic actor Mike Epps has been named host of the 4th Annual BET Hip-Hop Awards slated to air Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. The award show will be taped Oct. 10 at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta.

What is strange to us is that Katt Williams has hosted the three previous seasons and we were told he was not asked to host this year's event.

That's not all for Mike Epps, as we have also learned that Epps will star in Showtime's one-hour standup comedy special, Mike Epps' Under-rated and Never Faded: Live from Detroit premiering on Saturday, Oct. 3.

There is more news about to be released soon and we will have more info on this shortly.
