Chuck D: 'Public Enemy in Rock & Roll Hof is victory for hip-hop'

12 December 2012 7:41 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chuck D has described Public Enemy's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a victory for hip-hop. Public Enemy were announced along with Donna Summer, Rush, Randy Newman and Heart as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's latest class on Tuesday (December 11).

In an interview with Billboard, Chuck D expressed hopes that Public Enemy's induction will open the door for more hip-hop acts to make the Hall of Fame. "It's not an achievement for Public Enemy per se as much as I think it's an achievement for hip-hop and rap music to be legitimised," he explained. The star continued: "Us going in is a win for our peers like Kurtis Blow or Krs-One, Queen Latifah and [the already-inducted] Run Dmc, the Beastie Boys, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious 5. They're our peers, and I feel thankful we're (more) »

It was almost exactly 1 year ago today when it was announced that Will Smith, his Overbrook Entertainment cohorts, and Queen Latifah were teaming up with Sony Pictures TV to produce a syndicated daytime talk show for the Queen to host. Details were scarce at the time, except that the program was scheduled to debut in 2013, and it's apparently still on schedule, as Deadline reveals today that, after some competitive bidding between networks, CBS has landed what will be called The Queen Latifah Show (recall the Queen once hosted a talk show, also titled The Queen Latifah Show, which had a rather short run, from 1999 to 2001. »

29 October 2012 10:14 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Sony Pictures TV‘s The Queen Latifah Show is now a go for a fall 2013 launch. I’ve learned that, in a competitive situation, the daily syndicated talk show, executive produced by Latifah, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, has gone to the CBS TV Stations in a premium deal that will have the strip on the 16 CBS Owned & Operated stations. The Queen Latifah Show will feature celebrity interviews, human interest stories, comedy, pop culture and musical performances. It is expected to showcase Queen Latifah’s talents, blending comedy and music into her hosting duties. Shortly after the dust settled on this fall’s syndicated daytime talk show launches that failed to produce a breakout hit, Sony TV began conversations with station groups about the Queen Latifah talker, garnering interest from multiples places. I hear negotiations went down to the wire with the CBS and NBC station groups. The »

I'd actually forgotten all about this, which was announced last October - Will Smith, his Overbrook Entertainment cohorts, and Queen Latifah are teaming up with Sony Pictures TV to produce a syndicated daytime talk show for the Queen to host. Details have been scarce, except that the program is scheduled to debut in 2013. This is one of a handful of TV projects the Queen has on tap, including teaming up with The Biggest Loser creator/executive producer Dave Broome to produce a music competition series for The CW network, a female-lead police procedural pilot sold to CBS, the Lifetime all-black cast remake of Steel Magnolias, and of course the second season of VH1's Single Ladies, which begins this in a week or so. Flavor Unit also produces scripted series for Bet and VH1. Recall the Queen once hosted a talkshow, titled The Queen Latifah Show, which...
