This past week, Bryan Greenberg, Victor Rasuk, and Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi were in New York to act as the celebrity guest hosts of Sucka Free on MTV2. Sucker Free is an hour long block of hip-hop videos that airs sporadically on MTV2. I know what you are thinking, they still play music videos on any MTV station? On Sundays, it hosts a weekly top 20 countdown which it calls Sucker Free Countdown. That's the episode that the "How to Make It in America" trio will host. It will air February 14, at noon, the same day as the premiere of their new series.
The official website for the show describes itself as:
Sundays on MTV2 are Sucker Free Sundays, with wall-to-wall hip-hop programming all day long. Along with a countdown of today's freshest new rap music videos, MTV2 Sucker Free Sundays includes episodes of hip-hop- related MTV series and specials and serves as a showcase for a brand new hip-hop track each week as part of "MTV2 The Drop." And don't get us started on the guest hosts. From Ludacris and Ice Cube to MURS and The Cool Kids, plus Weezy, Jeezy, T.I. and T-Pain, if they're anybody in the scene, then they've held the mic on Sucker Free Sundays, bringing the best hip-hop videos straight to you. Picking up with the legendary Yo! MTV Raps left off, Sucker Free defines hip-hop and it's only on MTV2.
Ludacris, Weezy, Ice Cube, T-Pain,... and Bryan Greenberg? Sounds funny doesn't it? I'd probably throw Greenberg's music in a John Mayerish genre instead of hip hop. If you've never heard him play, you can check him out in concert with Cudi here, or go to his myspace. Meanwhile, "How to Make It in America" continues to ride the hype in the hip hop community thanks to Kid Cudi.
