One week and counting until Lifetime’s new season of The Rap Game is back on primetime and season three is kicking off breaking all the rules!
The hit show from Golden Globe winner and Grammy nominee Queen Latifah and Grammy winner Jermaine Dupri is taking 2017 by storm, allowing season two fan favorite, Tally, to return and battle four new contestants, who all have their eye on the prize—a recording contract with Dupri’s label, So So Def Records. In addition to this new twist to the show, social activist Bernice King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., will make a special appearance, inspiring the young entertainers.
So just who is among this season’s new crew? Well, there is sixteen-year-old Nova, from Reading, PA; thirteen-year-old King Roscoe from Atlanta, GA; sixteen-year-old, season two fan favorite, Tally, from Nashville, TN; fifteen-year-old Deetranada/Dee from Baltimore, MD; and twelve-year-old Flau’jae, from Savannah, GA.
The Rap Game helped Lifetime to rank as the number one cable network in its Friday night time slot among women 18-49 and 25-54. The show is produced by Intuitive Entertainment and also features well-known rappers Da Brat, Bow Wow, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Jon Jon, I Heart Memphis, Jeezy, and Jadakiss, singer Kelly Rowland, and producers Brian Michael Cox, Zaytoven, Mike Kalombo, and Jermaine Dupri serving as mentors for the rising stars.
