By Michael Lewittes



Chris Rock was on Thursday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and talked about hosting the upcoming 2014 BET Awards, as well as revealed how Kanye West named his new “Black Plague” comedy tour.


Rock shared that he was hanging out with West, “listening to records or whatever and he said, ‘black plague,’ and I was like, ‘Can I use that?”

“I’m gonna spread the Black Plague, Jimmy,”Rock said to Fallon.

But before he kicks off his tour, Rock will host the upcoming BET Awards.

Fallon noted that Rock made an interesting choice, since he could have hosted the Oscars, if he wanted.

“I like the BET Awards, because the BET Awards, it’s for everybody,” explained Rock, adding, “It’s for white people too.”
