In The Rap Game episode ‘Fresh to Def,’ the five aspiring rappers get a lesson from the show’s producers Jermaine Dupri and Queen Latifah. She talks to the kids about how to build an image, one that stands out in a crowd. 11-year-old Jayla Marie from Staten Island, the youngest of the group, says she has an advantage because she’s a model. “The other kids in the house aren’t models. I’m a model. So they have to step their game up.”
While there are cute photos of Jayla Marie posing like a model on her social media accounts, there is no evidence that she is a professional model, i.e., that a company pays her to model. 2paragraphs inquired about Jayla Marie’s modeling experience but has not yet received a response. We’ll keep you posted*. The Rap Game airs Fridays at 10pm on Lifetime.
