Shad Moss is creating his own version of a late night talk show.
The 28-year-old saw the need for more diversity and wanted to have more creative control in terms of hosting.
“When I hosted 106 I knew then I could do whatever (talent wise) but i did not own 106. I had little control and I gots to be the man because I’m a creator. So when I cant be creative well… But I learned so much to the point I will have my own late night show coming. I get to run my own show content etc… We will have the best producers and show runners in the game!”
The show’s target audience will be high school and college students and will also incorporate music, something Shad feels is lacking today.
“It’s 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. There’s no platform for hip hop artists no more”, he said.
Shad plans on having a variety of guests on, ranging from Kendrick Lamar to Michelle Obama, and wants his first guest to be Kobe Bryant.
First time people saw me was on Arsenio Hall show. So its only right i go back to where it started.first let me thank him by paving the way because i wouldn’t have did what I’m about to do. I been quietly working on a project that i felt was needed. When i hosted 106 i knew then i could do whatever (talent wise) but i did not own 106 i had little control and i gots to be the man because im a creator. So when i cant be creative well… But i learned so much to the point i will have my own late night show coming. I get to run my own show content etc… We will have the best producers and show runners in the game! Wont be like ANYTHING ON TV. 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. 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! Get ready i’m going through set designs now. REMEMBER I NEVER WANTED TO BE THE BEST RAPPER, but the GREATEST MULTI ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME FOR MY ERA. Ps.. I WANT MY FIRST GUEST TO BE NONE OTHER THAN LAKER LEGEND KOBE BRYANT! i want to kixk the show off w him. #shadmoss #BowcomingtolatenightTV #HISTORY #showwillbeINCREDIBLE #lasttodothisarsineohall #younglegend
