Exclusive: Katt Williams Talks Arrests, Alcohol, Drugs & Suge Knight!

Published

You may think Katt Williams has some issues he needs to straighten out, but the Friday After Next star tells HipHollywood, “It is not my job to alter my life’s path, if it runs into trouble, than trouble it is.”

It’s no secret that Katt has had a rough few months. Here’s a quick rundown of a few things that have happened:

1. Back in December, Katt was charged with battery after allegedly slapping a Target employee.
2. Also in December, Williams and his friend Suge Knight were involved in a fight inside a Hollywood nightclub.
3. One month later, the troubled comedian was arrested and charged with child endangerment.

Between the club fights, random arrests and alleged assaults on unsuspecting folks, Mr. Williams has become known more for his crazy antics than his comedy career. “I’m unfortunate that sometimes things happen to me in rapid succession. And the whole time I thought I was protected because they said all press was good press, but when I started getting the other press, they said it wasn’t, so I’m not sure”, Williams explained.

HH sat down with the funnyman during his press rounds for Scary Movie 5 and delved into his rumored drug and alcohol problems. We also asked him what he thought about Mike Epps’ tweet suggesting that there would be no Kevin Hart if Katt Williams had not ‘flipped out.’

Check out the interview below…you will definitely be surprised by his answers!

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
