Following yesterday’s announcement of the nominees, BET has revealed that Chris Rock will be the host of this year’s BET Awards.  The long time comedian and actor released a statement regarding the event: “It’s one of my favorite award shows combining people from movies, sports, TV and music.  Where else can you get Rick Ross and Michelle Obama in the same room?!  The BET Awards is like a party where nothing is off limits.  My peers have done the show now it's my turn."  The show will air live from Los Angeles on June 29.  Below you can check out a throwback clip of Chris' stand-up where he breaks down the differences between men and women.
