Legendary comedian Chris Rock is certainly no stranger to hip-hop. The South Carolina born, Brooklyn raised comedian has published a list on his website documenting his 25 favorite rap albums, cowrote and starred in the 1993 film CB4 which parodies gangsta rap, appeared on rap songs by Ludacris, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and Ice Cube, and in the past has even criticized contemporary rap. But perhaps Chris Rock’s hip-hop pinnacle was reached in 2010 when he appeared on Kanye West’s now magnum opus album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Rock was asked by ‘Ye to appear on the song “Blame Game,” in which Rock provided an extended monologue. So maybe Rock is a little bit biased when he recently called Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy as the “greatest hip-hop album of all-time” in a HOT 97 interview. Check out the full interview after the jump to see what else Chris Rock had to say.

As we’re sure you’ve already heard, Migos were involved in an altercation following a DC nightclub performance in which Migos member Quavo was allegedly robbed. While Migos continually denied being assaulted or robbed (the item in question is Quavo’s gold QC chain) the alleged assailants have repeatedly posted photos and videos of themselves with Quavo’s aforementioned piece of jewelry. This has all boiled down to Quavo himself having to clear the air with his new track “Tha Truth.” Mind you it is rare to hear from a singular Migos member on a track, so mark this one down for the record books.
