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 BET.com 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?
