With a shared passion for great music and a competitive spirit, two couples became business partners to develop a trivia card game that allows players to flex their music knowledge spanning genres from old-school hip hop and R&B to gospel hits. The Black-owned business aims to level up your game nights while promoting a friends and family community for the culture in an underrepresented market.
Lyrically Correct creates the head-to-head team games that press the rewind button on nostalgic chart-topping hits. Belting out your favorite jams from back in the day is highly encouraged as players test their old-school knowledge.
The 90’s & 2000’s Hip Hop/R&B Edition is its flagship product and best-seller. For more genres, Lyrically Correct’s product lineup includes Revival: The Gospel Edition, The OBG: Oldies But Goodies featuring music from the 1960s and 1970s, and 80’s Mixtape: Hip Hop, R & B, Funk and Pop Edition. The R&B Expansion Pack is also available.
Available in Target and Amazon.
