Guests danced to sounds by DJ Peanut. V103’s Greg Street conducted a live broadcast leading up the show’s premiere.
“The Rap Game” – airing Fridays at 10/9c on Lifetime – will give five emerging young hip hop artists, ages 12 to 16, the opportunity to rhyme and flow with Dupri as he searches for the next big name in hip hop.
