“TMZ HIP HOP is long overdue, and yet, right on time. We’re on the heels of what I’d argue is one of hip hop’s biggest pop culture moments – Dr. Dre’s incredible Super Bowl halftime show – which reminded the world how much the genre is beloved,” said executive producer Charles Latibeaudiere. “The fact is, it’s been that way for 30, almost 40 years … so, it’s beyond time for a show all about the personalities who’ve made hip hop a worldwide phenomenon. And, I have to say … this group loves talking about it, they have a lot of fun.”   

TMZ HIP HOP is produced by TMZ Studios.  Charles Latibeaudiere is the executive producer, and Trent Clark and Jess Fusco serve as co-executive producers.
