One More Look At Yo! MTV Raps On Dec.4th

Soo this news here, may just serve as an early Christmas present to all the old school hip hop junkies. MTV has announced their plans to bring back the retired hit show Yo! MTV Raps for a one-off special on December 4th. The popular show had a nice run from 1988-1995, giving its viewers a taste of pure hip hop every Saturday morning.

MTV2 will air the show following the first Annual Sucker Free Awards which is set to premiere at 11p.m. EST. On the special, original hosts Ed Lover, Dr. Dre and Fab Five Freddy will revisit some special moments that the viewers loved, including interviews with A Tribe Called Quest, Ice Cube and Geto Boys. There will be guest appearances by artists such as Fat Joe, Questlove, Naughty By Nature and few others.


This special airing could be looked at as a tribute, being as though this show played an integral part in the emergence of hip hop. Everybody who was anybody had to come through, and showcase their talent on the microphone. Many artists gave timeless performances on the show, for this was the hip hop stage during this time. Check out a few below.
