Many rappers are accomplished wordsmiths, but now fans will get to see just how smart they are in other areas. Last week Da Brat, Xzibit, Jermaine Dupri, the Rev. Run, Cypress Hill’s B-Real, Nate Dogg, Young MC and DJ Quik taped an episode of NBC’s “Weakest Link” scheduled to air April 28.
“That was definitely the funniest television or radio show I’ve ever done or been a part of,” Quik said in a statement. “[Show host Anne Robinson] asked Nate why he had his hands in his pockets. Nate said, ’So I won’t steal anything.’ We were all dying.”
Although everyone loved the wise guy, Quik said they didn’t take too kindly to a smarty-pants in the group. “I’m not going to say anything about who won, but that show just goes to prove [it] doesn’t matter if you’re a school kid or a famous rapper, nobody likes a know-it-all,” he said.
Fans will have to wait until the show’s air date to see who was the strongest link, but a spokesperson for the program did disclose that Robinson, who some have called TV’s rudest woman, apparently found a favorite in “X to the Z.” Robinson’s rep said she had a great time with all the MCs, who were playing for charity, but rousting Xzibit brought the biggest smile to her face.
