Executive produced by rapper/actor Ice Cube, the classic game show "Hollywood Squares" is revitalized and given a lively new take. Taking part in the classic tic-tac-toe format of the original game are some of hip-hop culture's biggest personalities, who match wits against one another to win cash prizes for members of the studio audience. Concluding each game is a bonus round, during which the winning celebrity and audience member try for a tic-tac-toe to double the total winnings. Celebrities appearing as contestants and squares include Amber Rose, Fat Joe, Mel B, Nelly, Tyga, Master P, Cedric the Entertainer, Bell Biv DeVoe, and Monica, along with stars from various VH1 reality shows.
