This is chronicling the 2017 version of Hip Hop Squares. Most commonly known as VH1 Hip Hop Squares its the show where you can "Come to Play, Stay to Party", produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment. In association with Entertain the Brutes, Cube Vision and The Firm.

Game formatEdit

In this version, two hip hop celebrities compete to win money for their fans in the studio audience. Other than that, the game is the same as it has always been, but with this one exception: to make a decision, the star in control presses one of two buttons in front of him/her. Green to agree, red to disagree. Also unlike the MTV2 version, there's no "G-Spot/Secret Square" round at all.

The first game is worth $500 and the second game is worth $1,000. In addition, each captured square is worth a random cash amount revealed when a star is chosen.

The star with the most money won the match and went on to play the three-in-a-row bonus round for a chance to double the dollars.

Bonus RoundEdit

The nine squares will flash around the board. The winning fan stops the board by hitting a button in front of him/her. When it stops on a square, the winning star's symbol gets placed there. Unlike All Star Blitz's bonus round, a spin of the board cannot land on a square occupied by a symbol.

The winning team has five chances to make a tic tac toe. If the winning team succeeds, their winnings are doubled.


  • The version will be executive produced by rapper/actor Ice Cube. In addition (unlike Whoopi Goldberg) he will also serve as the announcer and sometimes acts as the center square
  • DeRay Davis was once a panelists in the original MTV2 version before he became a host in the VH1 version.
  • This was the second spinoff series of its kind to have its own reboot, the first was Celebrity Family Feud in 2015.
