Executively produced by Ice Cube, Hip Hop Squares is a fun show with a good cause. It’s a twist on the classic Hollywood Squares, but with mostly black celebrities in the hip hop side of the entertainment industry.

Along with the alcohol-fueled commentary from the celebs, DeRay Davis’s hosting keeps the show’s atmosphere ruthless, yet hilariously entertaining. Everybody’s just up there having a grand ol’ time and it’s hard not to get sucked in. The celebrities hold back nothing when it comes roasting their fellow game players.

When I first watched I was a tad confused on how the game works. As simply as I can put it, it’s a big game of Tic Tac Toe with questions and at the end two deserving audience members get to take home the money won. You might have to watch an episode or two to finally get it (or maybe that’s just me). Watch this interview of Ice Cube and DeRay, they explain it a lot better.

New episodes of Hip Hop Squares air every Monday.

Check out Jessica Dime vs. Jackie Christie at 9pm and Kid ‘N Play vs. Naughty By Nature at 9:30pm tomorrow!
