LONDON // TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14TH 2008 » Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown and former Run DMC member Reverend Run both hosted the 2008 MOBO Awards in London tonight. If you’re scratching your head trying to figure out what the hell a MOBO is and why it’s relevant, then let me school you.

So there you have it. Now that you know where it is, follow the break to check out photos from the red carpet and from the show.
