VH1 created a show where white aspiring rappers will compete for $100,000. They are going to live in the South Bronx in an apartment together and compete against one another. OH BOY! Newsday is reporting that it debuts on tonight at 10:30 – I think I will pass on this one.
Host Michael “MC Serch” Berrin, known for the ’90s hit “The Gas Face” with the group 3rd Bass, schools the 20-something contestants on the history of hip-hop and the art of rhyme. “This generation can’t answer basic hip-hop trivia,” says Berrin, 39. “Early on, there was a history that you had to know. I had to know who the Funky 4+1 was, who Sha Rock was. I had to know this because when I was coming up, guys would test me.”
