The drinking card game is meant to honor Hip Hop hits, as well as history.
The inspiration behind the game was sparked by its creators, A.V. “$upreme” Perkins and Marian “Skinny Bee” Andoh-Clark, from a simple discussion on their love of the art form, and more specifically, Hip Hop’s Wu-Tang Clan. When the two could not find a drinking game with a theme based on the iconic rap group, the entrepreneurs decided to take on the task themselves.
“What makes this game so significant in this year is that we are the children of Hip Hop. Like we don’t know life before hip hop,” shared A.V. Perkins in conversation with media personality Jazmyn Summers for Newsone. “To grow up in the genre and see our greats still able to contribute to the genre and us to create our game, and just have all of that synergy is mind-blowing.”
The game tests one’s Hip-Hop knowledge and allows players to reminisce on their favorite hits while debating on hypothetical situations.
With its diverse gameplay and recognition of past and present Hip-Hop stars, University of Dope is keeping the party going with its “The Kickback” event in December, as part of the Art Basel festivities in Miami.
“We want to take game night and put it on its head,” expressed Perkins. “We’re bringing the nostalgia of old school hip hop and updating it with tech, making it an experience that connects people.”
The game, including its R&B and family-friendly versions, can be found on its website, in addition to retailers such as Amazon, Target, and Walmart.
