Posted on

Actor and comedian Mike Epps — known for roles in Next Friday and The Fighting Temptations — will host the fourth annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, which will air Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. on the cable network. The show will be taped Oct. 10 in Atlanta. Epps has other projects that will unspool around that time, too: He’ll star in Showtime’s one-hour comedy special, Under-rated and Never Faded: Live from Detroit, premiering Oct. 3, and his first hip-hop comedy album, Funny Bidness — which features Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, and Slim Thug — hits stores Oct. 27.
