Preview: TV One's Uncensored Plus Urban One Honors!

Wednesday, May 12, 2021

Hey Mofos! 

It's that time of year again for Urban One Honors! I love an award show! But before I preview that-- let's dig into the Uncensored episode that will air before it this weekend on TV One! From the press release and press conference I attended: 

Urban One Founder and Chairwoman Cathy Hughes announced TV One will air a special episode of its hit autobiographical series UNCENSORED featuring the late rapper DMX.  Hughes made the exclusive announcement on the URBAN ONE HONORS: Virtual Press Conference on Wednesday, April 28.  The special is slated to air on Sunday, May 16 at 8 p.m. ET/7C,immediately followed by the annual URBAN ONE HONORS hosted by Erica Campbell and Roland Martin at 9 p.m. ET/8C.   It will feature an interview with DMX just three weeks before his passing and is confirmed to be his final and most transparent to date.
"DMX sat down with our team and was completely UNCENSORED,” said Cathy Hughes.  “We have one hour with the late rapper in his own words. For DMX to be with us just three weeks before God called him home, I believe it's truly divine intervention. I thank Nikki from SWIRL films for staying the course because he kept telling her 'no', but thankfully we were able to make it happen. His family, fan club, friends, and supporters will be happy with the way he told his story for the last time. The two-part special will air directly before the annual Urban One Honors. I'm particularly excited because I feel like this will be the biggest night in TV One History."

I love DMX and still so sad that he's no longer with us, so I'll be locked in for this one! 

URBAN ONE HONORS is an annual tribute show that heralds the exemplary accomplishments of African Americans.  The theme of this year’s awards show is Women Leading the Change and will pay homage to dynamic ladies whose extraordinary contributions in business, media, health, and politics have had a profound impact across the country and the world.  URBAN ONE HONORS will premiere on Sunday, May 16, 2021, at 9 p.m. ET/8C on TV One.  It will be simulcast for the first time on its sister network CLEO-TV.  Grammy-Award-winning gospel artist, author, and syndicated radio personality Erica Campbell and award-winning journalist and author Roland Martin will host the event.  URBAN ONE HONORS was created to acknowledge and celebrate individuals and organizations whose work significantly impact society and culture.

This will definitely be an uplifting show! 

So will you be watching this weekend on TV One starting at 8p EST?
