VisionBombing Game Show is a Hip Hop game show created by MadFlow & DJ Psykhomantus. The game centres on two teams of four Hip Hop artists (a DJ, an MC, a Dancer and a Graffti Artist in each team), competing for points individually or as a team by playing a game which involves answering questions on media, music, films, politics or solving puzzles and playing wacky obstacles. Think of Hip Hop version A Question Of Sport meets Mock the Week meets Never Mind the Buzzcocks meets The Krypton Factor but a lot more fun and daring.
