Everybody loves game shows, but if you're like us, you've always felt there was one major thing missing from pretty much every game show around: Rap stars.
Well, guess what?
Next Tuesday, MTV2 is launching a brand new game show called "Hip Hop Squares" featuring some of the biggest names in rap testing their knowledge — and, to get ready for it, we've gone behind the scenes to pick their brains for a very special series of "Screen Check" interviews. Face it: This is the one you've been waiting for.
The premise is simple: Just like the classic game show "Hollywood Squares," "Hip Hop Squares" takes a slew of today's hottest hip hop stars and teams them up with contestants to try and complete a human tic-tac-toe trivia board. But the game takes a back seat to the real raison d'etre for the show: The let your favorite rap stars banter and interact in a wild, off-the-cuff entertainment free-for-all.
Just how cool is "Hip Hop Squares" going to be? Well, take a look at our "Screen Check" clips with DJ Khaleed and Asher Roth and see for yourself. Hint: It's going to be very, very cool.
