In the premiere season of the reality competition show The Rap Game, music producer Jermaine Dupri mentored five young rappers. At the end of the show, he chose one – Miss Mulatto -- to sign with his So So Def Recordings label. It wasn’t just the kids on camera that drove he show, but their parents (aka managers) too. Reality TV needs drama. While the kids got along just fine, the cameras turned to the parents “who had their problems.”
Supa Peach’s mom and Miss Mulatto’s dad were the most vocal. After the show, and after winning, Miss Mulatto defended her father: “they tried to go in on him if you really listen. People called him a hater. Nothing he said wasn’t true.” Plus, it was Miss Mulatto who convinced him to get involved. “He rented cars for videos. He was familiar with the industry, the pros and cons for kids. I still told him I wanted to do it.” The Rap Game will air a reunion on Friday, February 26 at 10pm on Lifetime.
