If you are a young'n and can't remember the hit game show Hollywood Squares, where celebrity's are the Xs and Os of a human tic-tac-toe board powered by quiz answers for two contestants, don't worry MTV2 has brought it back for you to enjoy in an urban edged style. Filled with hip-hop stars of today and icons of the past like Childish Gambino, Maino, DJ Khalid, to Ghostface Killah, Common and Biz Markie. Even comedians like Ashy Larry from the Dave Chappelle show, Nick Cannon and JB Smoove join in the wildness.
Word is the show's launch party was a great event last night in NYC, where show square Fat Joe introduced the debut episode to a hyped crowd of industry insiders. Here is a clip of new rapper Mac Miller backstage with Hip-Hop Squares host and Hot 97FM radio morning show member Peter Rosenberg chopping it up and throwing jabs at each other before taping. Be sure to tune in to MTV2 on May 22nd for the debut of Hip-Hop Squares.
