Shad Moss Will Be TV’s New Late Night Talk Show Host
Jimmy Fallon, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel and now Shad Moss; that’s right, the rapper has officially been added to the list of late night talk show hosts.
Moss revealed in a long Instagram message on Wednesday morning that he landed in a spot on late night television and will have the opportunity to “run my own show content.”
The rapper, who praised Arsenio Hall for paving the way, explained in the post, “We will have the best producers and show runners in the game! Wont be like ANYTHING ON TV.”
He continued, “Its going to be a show YOU HAVE TO WATCH. Music will play an important key to the show. I felt i HAD to do this. Theres no platform for hip hop artist no more.”
Moss wrote, “Where can they go to promote on tv other than revolt (they still growing) thats crazy 1 outlet?!! Music videos became less important. College kids and high school students have nothing at 10pm to really look forward to. Where my guest could be Kendrick lamar w j cole performing live. To having Michelle Obama on. I found my stride. I want to help the culture and this is my way of giving back to the game that made me!”
And according to the actor, he wants his first guest to be Kobe Bryant.
The rapper, who didn’t give out any details about the show or its launch, explained that this has always been his goal, to become the “greatest multi entertainer of all time for my era.”
