“It’s like Wild ‘N Out meets Best Week Ever,” Charlemagne, a former radio personality for Philadelphia’s 100.3 The Beat told VIBE.
“Hatin” is a spin-off of the comical webisode “Hood State of The Union,” which features Charlemagne and comedian Lil Duval bluntly commentating on urban entertainment.
“We’ve done nine [episodes] so far,” Charlemagne says. “We been doing it since the summertime. Not to toot my own horn, but people were in-tuned to it. And Nick was one of the guys that were in-tuned to it. And he reached out. And they wanted to do some other things at MTV too. So first things first.”
Earlier today, Nick Cannon took to Twitter to excitedly announce the show, which is set to air starting January 1. “HATIN stars a lot of Fresh funny people!” Cannon wrote.
“Ashy Larry and a comedian named Red Grant [are on the show],” Charlemagne said. “And of course, Nick’s a part of it.” —Linda Hobbs
