Queen Latifah, Jermaine Dupri to Search for Next Hip-Hop Star With Lifetime Series

The unscripted series will follow five emerging hip-hop artists in a bid to be groomed into the next big rap star.

Lifetime is getting into the hip-hop game.  Following the success of Fox’s Empire, the female-skewing cable network 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.

Producer 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.
