About the Show

Hip Hop Squares is an American television game show based on Hollywood Squares created by Merrill Heatter and Bob Quigley in which celebrity hip hop musicians play against each other in a game of tic-tac-toe, with increasingly high payouts as they advance through a series of rounds.

Remember Hollywood Squares? If not, it doesn't even matter.

Hip Hop Squares takes that classic game show you may have just Googled to a whole new level, by remixing it with hip hop's heavyweights and their fans.

Hosted by radio deejay Peter Rosenberg, Hip Hop Squares stays true to the tic-tac-toe format of the original game show, while infusing it with some of the biggest and most charismatic personalities in Hip Hop culture today, which transcends genre and crosses into the mainstream with its influence on everything from music to entertainment, fashion to comedy.

The series features musical moments and unpredictable interactions between energetic, hilarious and well-known personalities including: actor, comedian, rapper and television personality Nick Cannon; pro-skateboarder 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 many more.

More than just a game of tic-tac-toe, Hip Hop Squares is the ultimate game of BS.
