New hip hop shows coming to VH1
Hip hop is growing up. Now that the genre is a thirty-something, VH1 is paying its dues by premiering two new shows in the days leading up to the Hip Hop Honors ceremony.
“100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs” will be a typical VH1 style countdown show. It will be seen in five segments, beginning on September 29. Each song on the countdown will be analyzed and discussed by various rappers and celebrities, including Chuck D, Grandmaster Flash, and Eminem.
“VH1 Rock Doc: NWA: The World’s Most Dangerous Group” is a documentary on the history of the Compton rap group. Directed by Mark Ford and narrated by Chris Rock, the program will debut on October 3.
