Rest in peace Ryan Bowers. He was signed to Nick Cannon’s Ncredible Entertainment as a member of the Psych Ward Druggies (with Kehlani). He was a big fan of Bone Thugs and Tech N9ne, and ended up doing songs (and shows) with them both. Heck of a talent, just too many demons.

The Breakfast Club Co-Host Charlamagne Tha God Inks Deal with Comedy Central to Host Weekly Talk Show

Charlamagne Tha God is headed back to television: The host of the massively successful radio franchise The Breakfast Club is getting his own talk show on Comedy Central, Vulture has learned. Details are still being worked out, but the new series will be a weekly half-hour with a focus on current events and cultural issues. There’s no firm timetable for when it will premiere, but the goal is to get it in production by November’s election.

Charlamagne was already hosting Breakfast Club on New York radio when he landed at MTV, but he says McCarthy saw the TV potential in him long before he was a national success. “Giving me a TV deal, almost ten years ago, didn’t really make any sense,” Charlamagne says. “I was a radio guy. It’s easy to say, ‘You know what? I think Charlamagne Tha God needs a talk show’ now. But almost ten years ago for him to have that vision, that did a lot for me. A lot of my success right now is because of those looks that I got on MTV2 and Viacom at the time.
