We know you love Real and Chance. We know that they’re you’re favorite brothers in the history of Celebreality, probably in the history of television, possibly in the history of brotherhood. We know that you love their singular concoction of sensitivity, thuggishness and linguistic liberty-taking. We know that instead of counting sheep at night before you go to bed, you count Chances hopping over a fence, one after another, their Teen Wolf hair swaying in the wind. We know that you cried when Real proposed to Hoopz because you deserved it more. You know how to treat a reality star. We know that you cried harder when you found out that they were heading up a dating show that you weren’t going to have the chance to compete in, but we know you’ll watch their spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off, Real Chance of Love, anyway, when it premieres Monday, October 20 at 9/8c on VH1.
We also know that you’ll love the promo shots of them below and you’ll print them out and hang them on your bedroom wall and talk to them and probably kiss them and lick them because even though it’s paper, it’s paper blessed with the images of Real and Chance. We know how much they mean to you.
You didn’t see Tracy Morgan giving a speech on the NYC transit bus? What about Kid Rock giving props to his pal Too $hort? Did you catch De La Soul rolling through “Me, Myself, and I”? Not a problem. You can see the entire Hip Hop Honors show again and again. Here’s the whole thing right now.

Slick Rick is known as “The Ruler,” and as he sat in his Hip Hop Honors box seat watching his pals burn through few of his rhymes, he looked rather regal. MC Lyte was first with the salutation, “Gather ’round party goers…” It was wild from there. Busta Rhymes in the powder blue outfit with the matching eyepatch, Ghostface and Biz rolling through “La Di Da Di” and Eve throwing down about that slice of pizza in “Mona Lisa.” That’s the real deal.

Below, get an up-close look at the nine dudes who will study Mystery‘s ways in the hopes of becoming America’s next top ladies’ man…or, uh, just someone who can carry a conversation with a member of the opposite sex without stammering, stuttering or drooling.

What was your favorite part of the show? Don’t forget that we’re airing it again right now.
The bottom may be crowded, but there’s plenty of room at the top. Below, the other I Want To Work for Diddy winner talks about his near-loss, his friendship with Kendra and how Mike Barber differs from his alter ego, Mic Barber.
Suzanne takes it all…er, some of it, at least. Below, the joint winner of I Want To Work for Diddy talks victory, Poprah and preparing for the sleep deprivation that lies ahead.
Hip Hop Honors airs tonight at 10 p.m., and you’re not the only one who’s psyched. Naughty By Nature are so thrilled to be in the middle of the whole thing, they even wrote a song about it — which they’re offering to everyone for free! The song, appropriately titled “Hip Hop Honors,” is the only rap track we know that calls out Obama, chupacabras and direct marketing. And given the ridiculous performance the group gave at last week’s taping, we’re psyched for this track, and their forthcoming material.
Download the MP3 here, and be sure to check out tonight’s show!
