Hip hop music has come under much scrutiny over the past decade and a half. Among the most vocal critics has been Bill Cosby. The former star of "The Cosby Show" has openly criticized almost every rapper in the game. At one point, Cosby even released his own hip hop album in order to right the ship.

Because of all of the fighting Bill Cosby did against hip hop, news of him hosting a ceremony celebrating hip hop moguls comes as a bit of a surprise. On March 7, 2011, The Jackie Robinson Foundation will be honoring several hip hop moguls. Among the moguls being honored are Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Bill Cosby will be hosting The Robie Awards for The Jackie Robinson Foundation. Other hip hop moguls honored during this celebration will be Russell Simmons. In 2004, Bill Cosby had nothing but negative things to say about hip hop. He went as far as to criticized black parents for allowing all of this to happen.

Cosby has been trying to prove he has no issues with hip hop for some time. He argues his hip hop album was proof of this. By hosting an awards show for the hip hop moguls, Bill Cosby feels he is officially ending all discussion about him hating hip hop and rap.
