Tic Tac Toe for the Hip-Hop Generation

MTV2 is rebooting the classic tic-tac-toe game show, The Hollywood Squares with a twist -- this incarnation will be called Hip-Hop Squares and instead of a random collection of C-list celebs and comedians, will feature 9 personalities from the wonderful world of hip hop.


According to, the cable net has lined up the following people (among others) to inhabit the 9 tic-tac-toe boxes; Nick Cannon; Jackass crew member Bam Margera; actress Kat Graham; artist DJ Khaled; rappers Biz Markie, Ghostface Killah, Fat Joe, Mac Miller and MGK and Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lamarr Woodley.

Talk about a motley crue.

“They cross the spectrum from musicians and celebrities to athletes and causal fans of hip hop,”  MTV2′s programming chief Paul Ricci said in a statement . “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’.”

Fans can tune in for the first airing on Tuesday, May 22 at 11pm.

Anyone remember the time when MTV was actually cool and played music videos?
