Ongoing season, reviews and ratings
Season 1 of The Rap Game came out in the US on the Lifetime cable network on Friday, January 1, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT and it will contain eight one-hour episodes. In the premiere episode, viewers get introduced to five young aspiring singers as they get to meet their mentor and potential future boss Jermaine Dupri. The special guests of the premiere episode included music stars T.I., for Da Brat and Bryan-Michael Cox. Future episodes of the current first cycle of the competition will also feature superstars Usher, Ludacris, Silento and many more. The genre of rap is as popular in the United States as ever, and this new reality program has an added bonus of inspiring young adults to follow their passions and dreams. The show is fun, entertaining, with a healthy dose of competition. We believe it has a good chance of getting renewed for another run.
