MTV was slow to pick up on rap music, but when it finally did, it produced this lively mix of rap videos, interviews with rap stars, live in studio performances (on Fridays) and comedy. It initially aired once a week, but as the show's popularity grew, it was expanded to six days a week, with Ed Lover, Dr. Dre and T-Money hosting during the week, and Fab Five Freddy hosting on the weekends. After the original hosts left, MTV replaced them with different ones each season.
