From VH1’s May 10, 2010 Press Release:
VH1.com’s HipHop.VH1.com, Complex.com and MissInfo.tv have created an exclusive online content partnership for VH1 Hip Hop Honors 2010. The three sites will feature the event leading up to, during and following the June 7 telecast in their own distinct way with artist interviews, show news and editorial features focused on this year’s honorees and performers. Select content created by each site will be shared among the three sites and will be offered through a main content feed on HipHop.VH1.com. Additionally, Miss Info will be the official VH1 Hip Hop Honors 2010 backstage host for online video interviews from the event. She will also be the video host for the VH1 Hip Hop Honors 2010 live viewing party on HipHop.VH1.com, Complex.com and MissInfo.tv during the premiere of the show.
Now if you’re not familiar with the new host, Craig Robinson, you probably know him by face, he’s been absolutely high-larious in everything from “The Office” (the stockroom manager), The Hangover (the club doorman), Hot Tub Time Machine, “Eastbound and Down” (Reg Mackworthy) and more. You have to watch this hilarious “Eastbound” clip of Craig, Will Ferrell and Danny McBride (Kenny F–king Powers)…
