No, 'Hip-Hop Squares' isn't a TV show about Drake's daily life. It's MTV2's refreshing of the iconic TV show 'Hollywood Squares.'
Premiering Tuesday, May 22nd at 11pm ET/PT on MTV2, “Hip Hop Squares” stays true to the tic-tac-toe format of the original game show, while infusing it with Hip-Hop artists.
The series will feature Nick Cannon; pro-skateboarder and Jackass crew member Bam Margera; actress, dancer and singer-songwriter Kat Graham; record producer, artist and radio personality DJ Khaled; rappers Fat Joe, Biz Markie, Ghostface Killah, Mac Miller and MGK; Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl linebacker LaMarr Woodley and more to be announced. The show will be hosted by Peter Rosenberg.
“Hip Hop Squares is a great representation of MTV2’s new brand filter to deliver smart, funny and relevant content that speaks directly to male Millennials’ – or ‘Malennials’ as we call them,” said Paul Ricci, Head of Programming for MTV2. “The show will refresh an iconic format and create a fun, dynamic series that’s unpredictable, heavy on personality and much more ‘party’ than ‘game show’.”
