Would you believe Tracy Morgan raps under the name Scoopy Giles? Would you believe he created “Dumplin’ Butts,” a hip-hop song about “big fat juicy buns,” way before “Baby’s Got Back”? (Our favorite verse: “Allah says don’t eat no swine, but you know I’ll eat your pork.”) No wonder Tracy is the perfect host for VH1′s Hip Hop Honors, premiering Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 9/8c. Watch his music video masterpiece now and catch him explaining how his alter ego helped to found Def Jam records.
