MTV will broadcast retrospective Yo! MTV Raps Classic Cuts on its MTV2 station on December 4.
Original Hosts Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and André 'Dr Dre' Brown will return for the one-off, which features interviews with the creators of the classic videos for A Tribe Called Quest's 'Scenario', Geto Boys' 'My Mind's Playing Tricks on Me' and Ice Cube's 'It Was a Good Day'.
Lover told MTV News: "It's a great moment to be reconnected with Yo! and examine the music that had a role in introducing hip-hop to music lovers globally.
"By looking back at these classic songs in hip-hop, it becomes clear that hip-hop would inevitably transcend distance and generations."
Fab 5 Freddy added: "In this Classic Cuts special, people will go back to a seminal time in hip-hop, which many have called the 'Golden Era', resulting in records that are as meaningful today as they were back then.
"In order to appreciate how far hip-hop has come, you have to pay respect to the songs and artists that helped catapult the genre from a small community of fans to world domination."
Artists who will appear on the show include Q-Tip, Ice Cube, Wiz Khalifa, DJ Khaled, Questlove, Busta Rhymes, Young Jeezy, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Phife, Fat Joe, Common, Mike Epps and Ice-T, among others.
DJ Premier will be at the decks to remix the Yo! MTV Raps theme song.
Yo! MTV Raps originally aired from August 1988 to August 1995 before being renamed Yo!. The show was axed in 1999.
