Talib Kweli & Mos Def’s Black Star was a question on popular trivia app HQ
Have you heard of the popular iOS/Android game show app HQ Trivia where winners get cash prizes? Business Insider calls the app — which is hosted by Scott Rogowsky who you may know from Running Late with Scott Rogowsky — the “hottest app around” and writes:
The hottest smartphone app of 2017 is only getting bigger in 2018.
More than 1.2 million people logged on to play “HQ Trivia” on Sunday night — a new record for the app and a huge amount of players for any game, let alone at one time.
The trivia app costs nothing, and is available on both iOS and Android devices. Players log on at specific times, twice on weekdays and once each day on weekends, to participate in a live trivia game. Best of all: Winners are rewarded with actual cash prizes.
Last night (1/7), where a $10,000 prize was split between about 400 people (who each got about $25), one of the questions that eliminated a few thousand players was something that wouldn’t be too tough for the music fans out there. They asked what was the name of Talib Kweli and Mos Def‘s collaborative project in the ’90s, Black Star, Gang Starr, or TKMD?
A lot of people picked that third, entirely made up choice. I guess they need to brush up on the best alliance in hip hop.
