KINGS OF COMEDY: Katt Williams SAYS He PAVED The Way For Kevin Hart’s SUCCESS + Kevin Hart GIVES Back To Young Entrepreneur In Philly

Katt Williams is speaking out Kevin Hart’s explosive success. And he’s taking ALL of the credit. Meanwhile, Kevin Hart shows how much of a heart he has, giving back to an 8-year-old boy in his hometown. More inside…


In the past couple of years, Kevin Hart has been taking over the entertainment industry by storm. Selling out box offices with several hit films and trekking the nation for his sold-out stand-up comedy tours, he has arguably become one of the biggest comedians in Hollywood.

But fellow comedian Katt Williams (who supposedly retired from stand-up back in 2012 after a slew of legal troubles) says he’s the reason Kevin has received so much success and that he was the one who paved the way for the Ride Along star.

During a recent interview with Bishop Don "Magic" Juan (aired by VLAD TV), Katt revealed he "told Kevin Hart's people how to make him Kevin Hart” and that he doesn’t mind competition. He also claimed that he was the one who created the BET Hip Hop Awards and addresses the rumors of him having to forfeit hosting duties in 2008 after losing a dance battle with T-Pain.  Sigh.

So will Katt ever attend another BET Hip Hop Awards show? He says not while Stephen Hill is President. Oh…

Now...Katt is making a comeback to the stand-up comedy scene. He's gearing up for the release of his new Spike Lee directed comedy special "Priceless" which airs August 16th on HBO. Check the trailer below:

After hitting the On The Run tour stop in Philly for his birthday, Kevin Hart (above on the set of Ride Along 2 yesterday with director Tim Story) got into the do-gooder spirit while visiting his favorite cheesesteak spot.

As Kevin was walking in to grab a bite to eat, he was swarmed by excited fans. One in particular, 8-year-old Kyshone Smith. According to Philly.com, Kyshone and his grandmother Janice Brown were in the streets of Philly selling bottled water and homemade jewelry. Their proceeds go to their select charities in honor of Janice’s daughter and granddaughter who were killed after a motorist, who was fleeing from police, trampled them on the sidewalk where they were sitting.

Kyshone walked up to the the Ride Along star and asked him if he would like to purchase a bottle of water.

To his surprise, Kevin said, “I want 20 bottles.”  And he handed over a crisp $50 bill.
