Big Tigger, the Atlanta-based radio and television personality, is adding another gig to his dance card. Starting Friday, July 23, he’ll co-host hip-hop countdown show “Off Top” with rapper Rapsody on Sean "Diddy" Combs’ Revolt TV. Described as “a modern rap video countdown show with a nostalgic twist,” Revolt’s newest show will also include music performances and interviews with legendary rappers and new and upcoming artists.
Since last August, Tigger has been anchoring mornings at Audacy hip-hop/R&B “V103” WVEE Atlanta. The rap artist-turned radio personality, whose real name is Darian Morgan, also serves as the official DJ and Music Director of the Atlanta Hawks and is a DJ for Atlanta Falcons tailgates. He also hosts a number of BET Networks shows, including “Rap City: The Basement,” “106 & Park,” “BET Awards Show Post Party,” and the “BET Awards Red Carpet Show.”
With “Off Top” he’ll collaborate with Rapsody to recognize hip-hop stars not just for their beats but also for the power and meaning of their lyrics. Among the artists scheduled to appear on the show are Conway The Machine, NLE Choppa, Latto, G Herbo, Lil Tjay, Soulja Boy, Young Dolph & Key Glock, DDG, King Combs, Erica Banks, Yung Bleu, Reason, Buddy and Guapdad 4000.
“I'm looking forward to bringing another important production to the fabric of hip-hop culture," said Big Tigger. "This new series will be full of can't-miss content, and I'm excited to shine a light on what the latest wave is bringing to Revolt."
He and Rapsody will also be joined on the couch by media personality DJ Nyla Symone.
Each episode will also include moments in music booths that feature live-fan reactions pulled off of Instagram to create an interactive experience.
"We wanted to create a must-stop destination for hip-hop's most talented emcees to prove why they deserve to be considered among the best lyricists in the game," said Detavio Samuels, CEO of Revolt. "It was important that we paired an emcee who represents the best of the present and future with a cultural icon to show what the best of hip-hop looks like."
