Thanks to an impressive debut to the tune of 3.2 million viewers total and coming in as VH1’s highest rated new series of the year, rapper/actor Ice Cube and his Cube Vision production company – in conjunction with Jesse Collins Entertainment – are now celebrating news their show, ‘Hip Hop Squares,‘ has been renewed for season 2.
Taking to press, Cube stated:
“The positive response to ‘Hip Hop Squares’ has been an incredible experience,” says Ice Cube. “My team and I are grateful to VH1 and everyone who has worked incredibly hard to make the show a success. The fan excitement and their commitment has us fired up and we can’t wait to start shooting. Viewers can look forward to a louder, crazier party with the next season.”
VH1 president, Chris McCarthy, echoes the sentiments:
“‘Hip Hop Squares’ smashed ratings records as one of the most watched new series of the year. We couldn’t ask for a better creative force to steer the show than Ice Cube or a better partner than CBS Distribution, and we are thrilled to keep this party going.”
