Foxx joins an A-List roster of comedians who have hosted the ceremony, including Leslie Jones, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, Chris Rock, Mo’Nique, Kevin Hart and Chris Tucker.
The Unpredictable singer has a busy year ahead of him. He will star in Lionsgate’s action-adventure Robin Hood, which hits theaters November 21. He is also working on his directorial debut in the upcoming film, All-Star Weekend, which he wrote and stars in.

Tone Stith keeps his Tone Tuesday series going with a fresh track titled “Long Run.”
Backed by an acoustic guitar, the raw tune finds Tone feeling insecure after his girlfriend fails to answer or return his phone call.
“One of two things, that cross my mind / You must be sleeping or running wild,” he sings. “If It’s what I think it is, go have your fun / If you did what I think you did, I hope it was worth it.”
Take a listen to “Long Run” below.
