We’ve all caught hip-hop fever around VH1, which isn’t surprising, considering that VH1′s annual Hip-Hop Honors show premieres next Monday, October 8th at 10 p.m. (EST). In the lead-up to that extravaganza, we’re featuring all sorts of beat-making and rhyme-slinging on our fair network. Tonight, there are at least two shows you should know about (in addition to finding out what happened to the men of I Love New York). First up, there’s Bridging the Gap: Queen Latifah and Eve (11 p.m. EST). The two rappers hit some of L.A.’s finest boutiques, eat a little lunch in Beverly Hills, and then sit down to make hip-hop history by writing and recording a song together. A half-hour later, there’s Bridging the Gap: The Game and Snoop Dogg (11:30 p.m. EST), which follows the same premise — get one of the genre’s pioneers and one of its mavericks together, and watch them create. Whose track do you think will be smoother? We’re counting on hip-hop honoree Snoop. Click above for a tour of his studio.
