Over thirty years after its inception, the iconic hip-hop TV show Yo! MTV Raps will return to the airways later this month. The reboot comes to Paramount+, who released an official trailer for the revamped series.
The new version of Yo! MTV Raps will be hosted by battle rapper Conceited and DJ Diamond Kuts. According to the trailer, the format of the show will include “mic-dropping cyphers, original videos, iconic tributes, and performances you won’t see anywhere else.” The trailer also showed rappers Freddie Gibbs, Latto, Saba, J.I.D., and more set to appear.
Yo! MTV Raps debuted on August 6th, 1988, seismically changing the landscape of hip-hop. At the time, the genre was still in its infancy and primarily underground. The iconic series brought hip-hop to millions of households and was awarded one of the highest-rated programs in MTV history. Further, the series featured some of the most bright, bombastic, and even tense interviews and performances from the industry’s biggest stars including Tupac, Notorious B.I.B., and Wu-Tang Clan. The show ended in 1995 before a new format briefly revived the series from 1996-99. It was revived for a limited time again in 2018 as part of MTV’s 20th Anniversary.
Now, decades later, Yo! MTV Raps will officially premiere streaming on Paramount+ on May 24th. Be sure to check out the trailer in the player above. As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments section below! Are you excited for the reboot of Yo! MTV Raps?
