Hip Hop Trivia Quiz #1

This is a Hip Hop IQ type of quiz and is not for everyone. It's a true test of Hip Hop knowledge and is my first one of many more to come. Most people will not do well with this quiz because it is for those who have been submerged in the culture for years and actually live it.

Only take this quiz if you truly consider yourself a Hip Hop guru! If this is not you, then my advise is to not even bother because it will seem like rocket science to you. Physics is easier than this! Good luck!
