THE MOGUL MINUTE: JERMAINE DUPRI MAKES BIG MOVES, DOES BIG THINGS, AND NOW HE'S BRINGING US "THE RAP GAME" (THE MOGUL GIRL)
Mogul Jermaine Dupri launched his new show "The Rap Game" on the Lifetime network. As an award winning producer, rapper, and writer Jermaine Dupri is an essential part of the music industry. Over the years he has put tons of work in the industry and definitely knows what it takes to be a top artist in the game. Jermaine Dupri hand picked five young artist Lil Niqo, Young Lyric, Lil Poopy, Supa Peach, and Miss Mulatto to compete for a spot on his label So So Def. These young artist have gained thousands and millions of views online, collaborated with celebrities, toured,and have gained a strong following on social media. These kids are definitely talented. For eight weeks the kids and their parents/managers will live together . On the first episode Jyn Flowers (assistant to Jermaine Dupri) informed the kids that her boss was waiting for them . The kids and their parents headed over to T.I' s restaurant Scales 925 in Atlanta. When the kids arrived they met T.I and then the kids were introduced to the celebrity judge panel which included Brian Michael Cox, Da Brat, Polow Da Don, Johnte Austin, and Mike Kalambo. Then Jermaine dropped the bomb that the kids had to freestyle on the spot. Although the kids were surprised each of them stepped up to the plate and dropped a quick verse for the judges. The Rap isn't all glitz and glamour and you have to work your way up. o Jermaine Dupri informed them all that they would be interns . He gave each of the youth a task. During their task each kid was paired with a certain mentor. For example Lil Niqo was paired with Ludacris and Supa Peach was paired with Jyn Flowers (Jermaine Dupri's assistant) . During their task they had to rap about what they were doing .How well these kids do all count towards Jermaine Dupri's hit list. Each week he'll rank each kid from 1-5 and let's just say you want that number 1 spot.
The first week hit list went like this
The show is interesting and the kids definitely have work to put in. I interviewed Lil Niqo when he was 10 and had dropped his record "Okay Then" so its so cool to see him at 16 following his dreams and 1Mama Mogul is right by his side (you can listen here) . I also have been tuned into Young Lyric's upcoming as well. I commend all the young kids for aiming for their dreams and not giving up. So make sure you watch "The Rap Game" each week to see what happens next and find out whom is going to get that spot on Jermaine's "So So Def" label.
