THE MOGUL MINUTE : IN ORDER TO WIN THE RAP GAME , YOU HAVE TO STEP IT UP ! WORD TO JERMAINE DUPRI ( THE MOGUL GIRL)
Can you believe that we are three weeks from the finale of
The Rap Game? In three weeks Jermaine Dupri will crown his new
So So Def artist. Over the course of five weeks J.D has tested the kids on their ability to writing/record, style, dance, and now he's testing them on creative collaboration. Jermaine said " Collabs are a big thing in the biz". So this week Jermaine Dupri and Jny Flowers separated the top five into two groups along with their parentgers.
Group 1 consisted of Miss Mulatto, Lil Poopy, and Supa Peach.
Group 2 consisted of Young Lyric and Lil Niqo.
Jermaine Dupri wants the kids and their parents to know the importance of artist being able to work together as artist. On this episode Young Lyric's mom left so her dad could assist Young Lyric because he helps Lyric with her music.
Group 1 and Group 2 were hard at work coming up with a concept, writing, and performing their song. So J.D brought the kids to to the Sound Lab to perform for him and B.Cox. During the practice performance both teams were critiqued and they had to leave with their critiques, go back home and practice their songs.
The next day Jermaine Dupri brought the kids to Redan High School were he was waiting with Silento known for his RIAA certified Platinum single "Watch Me Whip (Whip/NaeNae) . Silento attends the high school and he took the top five on a brief tour of the school and answered a few questions. He expressed to his peers that "It's important for them to be real in their music because once everyone finds out it's not you, it's a wrap". So after spending sometime with Silento, J.D informed the kids that they'll be performing their song in front of 900 kids at their pep rally and they had to go get ready. When the kids stepped into the gymnasium the students were screaming and showing off their school's pride. So it was show time. Young Lyric and Lil Niqo performed their song first and they did an excellent job. They collaborated well together and fed off of each others energy. Their song was fresh and they were all the way live. The crowd was energized and they got into the crowd. The audience and J.D were pleased with their performance. After they rocked the gym Miss Mulatto, Lil Poopy, and Supa Peach performed. Their song was catchy . Miss Mulatto's energy was up, Lil Poopy definitely turned up his performance, and Supa Peach forget her verse. Supa Peach said " She wasn't use to collaborating, so that's why she messed up". So after their performances they headed back to their house in the A. During this time the parentgers were hashing out. Shayne and Precious Peach bump heads a lot and they don't really agree on anything.
So when Jermaine came to do his HIT LIST, he had to reevaluate it based on the disagreements and the bad energy in the house. So this weeks
HIT LIST went like this
1. Lil Niqo
3.Young Lyric and Lil Poopy
4. Supa Peach
This week was definitely about hard work and performance. The top five know that they have to really step it up if they want to win. J.D said next week they really better have their sh*t together because someone is going home next week.
