Late nights are about to get crunk  starting Monday, September 9. The Arsenio Hall show is back and his first week guest line up is nothing less than stellar.

According to THR, Magic Johnson, Angela Bassett, Ice Cube and Chris Tucker are among the featured guest for Hall’s first week. Hip hop icon Nas and the legendary R&B band, Earth, Wind and Fire will also perform during the premiere week as well.

Reportedly, Johnson’s appearance is a celebration of sorts having first appeared on Hall’s show back in the day to discuss being diagnosed with HIV. Wow, has it been that long?

“My first week of guests offers a taste of pop culture and represents the mix of talent I hope to have on my show every week,” Hall said. “I am honored to welcome friends — both old and new — to my show. My goal is to have fun, make people laugh and send viewers to bed with a smile on their face.”

Also scheduled to appear during the first month are Kendrick Lamar, Nick Cannon, Paula Patton, Djimon Hounsou, Russell Simmons, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Orlando Jones.
