JULIAN:  You know how the guys on YO! MTV Raps, like, how they are. They’re just like, you know – I’m the shit!

Yo! MTV Raps was a two hour television music program, which ran from August 1988 to August 1995 through its original Yo! MTV Raps name and later by Yo! (until 1999). The program was the first hip hop music show on the network, and produced a lively mix of rap videos, interviews with rap stars, live in studio performances (on Fridays) and comedy.  It is considered to be integral in the rise of hip-hops popularity in America during the late 80’s and early 90’s.

Yo! The story of Yo! MTV Raps is a 2012 documentary program produced by VH1 chronicling the history of the show while featuring highlights from its run.  It can be viewed in its entirety at THIS LINK!
