Katt Williams Says He Helped Make Kevin Hart (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Katt Williams was arguably the top comedian in the game at one point in his career. He eventually took a break from the public, and during that time Kevin Hart rose to become a superstar.

Williams sat down for an interview with Bishop Don “Magic” Juan and talked about how his decision to step away opened the door for Hart.

Speaking on taking a hiatus and Hart’s ascension, Katt said:

We understood when we did that that was the potential of what may happen. The only question is who is going to benefit from that. So if some outside entity or some enemy of mine or somebody I had a threat with was the person who was pretending to be the king, then that’s what it would be. But it was only going to be Kevin Hart, and I told Kevin Hart’s people how to make him Kevin Hart. Because I don’t mind competition. I’m really the greatest of all time. So I can build you to fight me boy, boy. You don’t want it.

The star of the stand-up movies The Pimp Chronicles, Pt. 1 and It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’ also claims he created the BET Hip Hop Awards and gets paid regardless of whoever serves as host for the event.

  • he’s maybe right

  • Markus

    Katt had an opportunity to be bigger than what he is now but missed his window. It may be tough to hear but Kevin Hart right now is way out in front.

  • Ipullcards

    He’s doing his kanye.. Right or wrong he should of left the drugs alone..

  • B.U.

    Katt was only hot for like 3 years.

  • El Dogga

    Katt was recycling the same jokes on different specials and dvds for years before he fell off. Don’t be madddddddddd!!!! (Jay-z voice) lol

    • Dhz30

      this

    • i’mtelling

      Kevin doesn’t have good jokes to recycle. He is boring funny. Katt is laugh out loud funny.

      • El Dogga

        In there hayday’s I would take Katt over Kevin all day. But Katt reign was shorter than leprechauns lol

    kat is by far more talented and funny. he truly understands what it mean to be a comedian. hart is funny but light hearted kiddy funny. kat take the real in life and pain and turns it into the funniest shit you have ever hear. respect the king.

    • Michael Thompson

      The only thing about kat is what movies has he been the main star of? and how good were those movies. it really means a lot to have an all around talent to be good at standup, movies, and just in person. u gotta be good at all 3 to be really successful.

      • xxxlordnikonxxx

        there are plenty examples all over hollywood as to why thats not an accurate statement

      • Michael Thompson

        of course there are probably examples of some one just being good at standup and not movies. but i was saying that if someone is only good at standup and can’t really translate there skills into other things then they won’t become as famous as someone that can. otherwise name someone that is great at only standup and thats it and is more popular then some comedians that can do all type of stuff?

      • xxxlordnikonxxx

        ah. well.. shit.. now what your saying there makes sense. but is kat really famous for his movies tho? stand up movies yea but im sure thats not what your talking about. hes done a cameo or two ya but kat was huge for a min and it was mainly off his stand up and funny voice when hes got 5 mins in a movie.. but he still managed to be the topic of discussion on everybodys twitter feeds.. but either way hes funnier and a pure comedian. but that my two cents. now let me fall back before someone accuses me of dick ridin. no homo

      • Michael Thompson

        thats the thing i was talking about tho. Kat is only standup funny and cameo funny. he can’t really be a lead in a movie or hasn’t anyway. and to be truly honest he’s actually mostly black ppl famous more so then world wide famous unfortunately. theres a difference. for example all the ppl on love and hip hop, they may be popular to the average american black person but to the average white person or foreign person don’t know who those ppl are lol

  • Kevin Anthony

    I remember when Katt was down with the Dips, time flies. Soundcloud Kevin Anthony

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      thats why he said boy boy

    Katt and Kevin have totally different styles, the only thing they have in common are both being short black comics. Mike Epps said it best that if Katt doesn’t lose his mind, then Kevin would have never blew.

  • Jerry Ramirez

    Kevin Hart is DL Hugely without the “sideburn” birthmark & crazy hair.

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      DL Hughley is not funny tho!

      • Guest

        You gotta be grown to understand DL Hugley’s funny, he don’t do that ROLMFAO funny, he does Grown-Folk Funny, where you laugh, but it also makes you think, Steve Harvey and Cedric The Entertainer, and Bernie Mac is the same. Kevin Hart and Katt does Silly Funny, where people young and old can get with it and laugh..

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        I am grown, very! You just named the Kings of Comedy tour and DL got the lease amount of laughs from me. Yes he does make you think, which i appreciate, but thats about it.

      • Jerry Ramirez

        Yeah no doubt, I was talkin’ bout looks that’s all. But I agree wit the replys’.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        you right tho, that shit was funnier than DL himself lol.

  • therealjjohnson

    I wish every interviewer would stop trying to put “insert black comedian here” against Kevin Hart. I mean every interview with a black comedian, the first questions is “how do you feel about Kevin Hart?”. Why must we continue to do this?

  • therealjjohnson

    I don’t really care about who is bigger, who has the most movies, TV appearances etc. All I care about is laughing.

  • IceBergSlim

    This is wack. First Mike Epps now this Elmer Fudd looking bamma..let kevin Hart keep gettin money. I swear we hate to see each other fly

  • This fools whole career was based around his character in the Friday movie. Get outta hea. If he made Kevin then Cube made you!

  • WILL a.k.a ILL WILL

    Katt just mad, Kevin Hart is gettin money for his whack-ass, barely funny movies, when that used to be Katt’s thing, but Katt took a break. Did he not think someone would come up, and take his spot? Face it, everybody who saw that garbage flick Soul Plane, knew that Kevin shined, add his Stand-Up shows to that, you knew he was bout to blow…. The 90’s-early 2000s it was Chris Rock, and Chris Tucker, holding the crown of staring in comedies as well as their stand-up… Katt had his short run , than he fell off… Katt’s life choices is the reason for his fall… I still watch his shows though.. Nigga funny as shit, I’m just saying, his time in the spotlight is over. In the Industry of FUNNY, you gotta go hard to stay relevant, No Days Off. This Kevin Hart’s time, and he’s not givin that shit up for nobody…

  • Bruh say best of all time….Red fox and Richard Pryor RIP, Katt smoking that good dope is why he fell off. Rudy ray mo

  • i’mreloaded!

    Katt may be right when he said he let Kevin in, but you can’t take away how Kevin has capitalized off his exposure. He really out there hustling. I never thought Katt was all dat funny, he made me haha every now and then but he goes too far with a joke sometimes.
