Bill Bellamy and Breakbeat Media ignite podcast world with new show uniting hip-hop and comedy

Press Release · Los Angeles, CA, USA ·

Today, Breakbeat Media announced its new audio-visual podcast, Top Billin’ With Bill Bellamy, launching on Wednesday, July 6. Filmed on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, each week, the comedian-actor speaks candidly with leading figures in music, comedy, sports, and more from the past and present. Bellamy and his guests will share intimate stories about their lives and careers while dissecting current events and pop culture.

“I’m excited for my listeners and fans -- young, old, dedicated, and new -- to get a fresh perspective in the podcast landscape and see me in a new way,” says Bellamy. “They know the comedian Bill, and he’s not going anywhere, but with Top Billin’ and Breakbeat, I’m bringing together generations of inspiring and impactful talent and asking them the questions no one else has, all while having fun doing it.”

Upcoming featured guests include Grammy Award-winning artist-turned-comedian T.I. and entertainer Tony Rock, who speaks publicly for the first time about the now-infamous Oscars incident involving his brother and actor Will Smith.

“Bill’s a longtime friend. I’m excited and honored to be working with him on this show,” says Dave Mays, the creator of The Source magazine and Breakbeat’s CEO and co-founder. “I can’t think of anyone who is a more captivating storyteller than Bill or more widely respected in both the comedy and hip-hop worlds. Fans will get amazing conversations and extraordinary insights only Bill can bring out of his guests.”

Top Billin’ With Bill Bellamy joins the ranks at Breakbeat Media, a premier podcast network that is home to breakout hit shows Don’t Call Me White Girl and Cornbread TV Starring Funny Marco. Breakbeat was co-founded by Mays and business and finance heavyweight Kendrick Ashton.

“Bill is a game-changer for Breakbeat,” says Brett Jeffries, the network’s Chief Creative Officer. “He’s a fixture in the culture who will give his audience a wonderfully authentic point-of-view. For the first time, his fans will experience a side of Bill that has rarely been exposed. I’m most excited for this, and I love that Breakbeat provides these opportunities.”

Top Billin’ with Bill Bellamy is distributed by DAX. Mays executive produces with Bellamy, Brett Jeffries, and Barry Katz. The show is produced by Tastemakers Media at Dash Studios in Hollywood. Top Billin’ With Bill Bellamy premieres on all audio podcast platforms on July 6, with video premiering on the Breakbeat Media YouTube channel on July 7.
