Jermaine Dupri Teams Up with Flavor Unit to Produce New Rap Mentoring Reality Show “The Rap Game”

If Atlanta, Georgia isn’t the place to be to get casted on reality television, I don’t know where else is.

Currently, it is being promoted that yet another “unscripted” reality show will be based around the city that has quickly become known as the southern Black Hollywood…the ATL.

This time around producers of the new show, tentatively titled The Rap Game, will follow five young aspiring hip hop artists (ages between 12 to 16 years old) looking for his/her big break.

These young rappers will be immersed into the Atlanta hip hop scene with famed music producer Jermaine Dupri at the helm as their mentor. Queen Latifah, along with her partner Shakim Compere, will executive produce the series under their well established Flavor Unit Productions.

The series is slated to air each Friday at 10:00 PM EST on the Lifetime channel, premiering Jan. 1, 2016.

Each week, special guests such as Usher, Ludacris, Da Brat, T.I. and Silentó will join Dupri to help mold the kids into the next rap star.

The show’s mentorees include:

Lil’ Niqo, 15, San Diego, CA ­ Lil’ Niqo has been making music history since he was 10. He was the youngest rapper signed to Island Def Jams and was a correspondent for BET and MTV’s red carpets. Lil’ Nigo also appeared on the drama, The Finder, working alongside 50 Cent, Michael Clarke Duncan and Jacob Latimore. With his “momager” Nique by his side, there’s no stopping Lil’ Niqo’s path to success.
