The View Takes Hip-Hop Over

Well, not really, but Kim Osorio over at Global Grind recently premiered her own version of the Barbara Walters-helmed ABC talk show.

I’m usually not too fond of remakes and spin-offs, but this one works for some reason. I actually like that there seems to be range between the four women. You may remember Jenn The Penn from BET’s Ultimate Hustler, that Apprentice-like reality series Damon Dash had a few years back. I’m not sure what she does now, but her name seems to be circulating a lot.

You already know KO’s resume. First EIC of The Source, stint at and now Vice President of content at GG. Angela Yee is responsible for 50% of Worldstarthiphop’s good footage in the last few months. She’s killing it these days. I see her eventually shooting to the top as a radio personality. Last but not least, Tionna Smalls. She’s the lesser known of the bunch, but by far the more outspoken.

The quartet discussed hip-hop couples like Jayonce (Jay and Beyonce) and Chrianna (Chris Brown and Rihanna) in the first episode. See it for yourself below.

I like the show. I think it has potential. What do you guys think?

    We need more shows with people talking about other people like we need 4 more years of Bush. Shit is oversaturated as fuck. Too much dialogue. For reals, they gots to chill.

    this is just a fake rip off of Kimora’s show and the view. The view works cuz you have experienced comideines who know how to entertain viewers. These girls look like ghetto caliber sex and the city wannabees with a license to yap like they’re in the bathroom at golden lady! And wsup with the screwface girl with the balloons for a chest! she look like she’s about to explode if she breathe too hard. Cmon are we really supposed to take them seriously?

    i actually think dat its a good idea 2 make a more “urban” version of the view. whether a male or female panel i think yungsters will support and watch.
