Britannica defines Hip Hop as having five elements: MC, DJ, Graffiti, Dance, and Knowledge of Self/Consciousness, and the years between 1990-1999 gave us some of the most influential, controversial, and memorable hip hop moments in history. Join Guest Trivia host Janear Hankerson with SmartsQuest Quizmaster Steven Bost as you test your knowledge on all things from the beginning of the decade with the rise of the Native Tongues, to the mid-decade landing of the ATLiens, and closing out the century with the Miseducation of a former Fugee member.

For those of you that fell in love with Hip Hop in the 90s, who have weekly arguments in the group chat about your top 5 MCs, and can name all 9 (or is it 10?) members of Wu-Tang, this show is for you. If you can answer questions like which came first Whoot, There it is, or Whoomp! There it is? Where did Q-Tip leave his wallet? Or, which local college did Biggie gave a shout out to? Then virtually gather your crew because it’s time to get live and it’s time to represent. Break out your Cross Colours hoodie, practice your butterfly, and stock up on Crystal Pepsi, because this show is going to be off the hook. The choice is yours.
