VH1 and Hot 97 today announced the March 31st premiere of This Is Hot 97, a new unscripted half-hour comedy series starring Ebro Darden, Angie Martinez, Cipha Sounds, Peter Rosenberg, Laura Stylez and my homegirl Miss Info. The series is being executive produced by Mona Scott Young of Love And Hip-Hop fame, but in Info’s words it’s best described as “The Office meets that classic ’80s sitcom WKRP In Cincinnati” so don’t expect it to be the typical gutter “reality” fare.

Louch joins Cipha Sounds at the UCB Theater for his Take It Personal Hip-Hop Improv series and gives some behind the scenes on the making of “It’s All About The Benjamins”. He reveals that he didn’t initially like the now iconic beat and only spit over it after being urged to by Missy Elliott, who, as it turns out, played a huge but largely unheralded role in the construction of the song.
So yeah, MISSY ELLIOTT IS THE REASON STYLES DOESN’T HAVE A BENJAMINS VERSE.
