Lifetime is teaming with Queen Latifah and Jermaine Dupri for a new unscripted series called The Rap Game.
The eight-episode unscripted series, set to premiere on New Year’s Day, follows five emerging artists ages 12-16 who will be immersed in the Atlanta hip-hop scene in a quest to become the next big rap star, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Jermaine Dupri will be joined every week by such guests as Usher, Ludacris, Da Brat, T.I. and Silento to help mold the kids into the next big young rapper and earn a record contract with their mentor’s So So Def Recordings label.
Queen Latifah and her partner Shakim Compere will executive produce under the Flavor Unit umbrella along with Dupri.
