Arsenio Hall opens up about how putting Hip-Hop artists on his show paved the way for his career. He says that talking to Russell Simmons about upcoming artists helped switch his focus to going after that segment instead of established artists. 

The famed late night host says "Hip-Hop changed my life," and adds that he was in the right place at the right time.

Arsenio also speaks about being the first host to interview rappers, which put him in a category all by himself.
