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.

File this in the “Why Wasn’t I There?” section.  Two of comedy’s biggest names shared the stage early Tuesday morning in an impromptu performance at New York City’s Comedy Cellar.  Throughout the week the two have performed separately at the Cellar, trying out new material; Rock because he’s preparing for an new standup special, and Chappelle because…well, who knows, just be thankful he’s still doing standup.  After performing solo for about 45 minutes, Dave Chappelle was joined by Chris Rock who took the stage to tell the audience, “Aw, you lucky motherf*ckers.” Read More

There is a chance that former N Sync front boy, turned solo superstar, Justin Timberlake might be hosting the 2009 Academy Awards. Now granted he did a great job of Saturday Night Live a couple of years ago (See video inside of the classic D**k in a Box sketch) but for real the Oscars? I am tempted to start a campaign to bring back Chris Rock who kicked it on stage back in 2005. Yeah bring back Chris.
