Yo! MTV Raps UK is back! Everything you need to know about series two - Presenters, start date and more!

MTV is bringing back the hit music chat show Yo! MTV Raps UK for 2019!

The first season featured some of the UK’s best and brightest rap artists and we can expect this and more this time around.

So when does the new series start and who will be on it this time?

Read on to find out everything you need to know about Yo! MTV Raps series 2…

What is Yo! MTV Raps about?

The show dates all the way back to 1988 when MTV was first becoming a big network.

Yo! MTV Raps is even cited as having spread and popularised rap music.

The reboot came to the UK last year and quickly gained a strong fanbase as lots of the best rappers in the country came out to support the show.

When does series 2 start?

The bi-weekly show will be commencing on Tuesday, April 23rd at 11 pm.

Airing right after Geordie Shore, MTV have got your Tuesday nights lined up from here on out!

It is yet to be confirmed how many episodes will be in this series, but as there was only four in season 1 we hope for a few more.

Who is presenting series 2?

Good news, as Poet and Snoochie Shy are back to continue their presenting duties!

Snoochie is a 26-year-old Radio DJ, TV presenter and model.

She will co-present with Poet, who is a jack-of-all-trades. An ex-MC turned TV and football presenter on Copa90.

What can we expect from Yo! MTV Raps series 2?

We can already tell episode 1 (Tuesday, April 23rd) is going to be a tearjerker.

In this episode, the hosts and their rap royalty guests will pay homage to Cadet, who tragically passed away in a car accident in February 2019.

But there will also be highs on the show, as this season we can expect the best of the best.

Here are some selected artists who will feature on series 2:

  • Ghetts
  • House of Pharaohs
  • Koffee
  • Rapman
  • DJ Tiffany Calver
  • Bugsey
