(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.
