Rap super star turned TV producer 50 Cent has another new show lined up a celebrity battle rap show! 50 Cent is still on TV mogul grind, launching a new competitive Hip-Hop reality series titled Unrapped. According to Deadline this project will be produced by his G-Unit Film & Television company and SFO Entertainment. 50 will set up a contest where celebrity contestants will be coached by some rap mentors in a battle rap tournament. Week after week, the opps will go head-to-head until the winner emerges as the number one emcee. They have recently started casting. Jackson is set to be the exec producer of the project, alongside Antonio Collier, Jon Sheinberg, Susie Ursitti Sheinberg, Gwen Osborne, and Matt Feige.

Also in comp with Fifs show is Nick Cannons history-making rap variety show. VH1 is about to drop the 16th season of their incredibly successful, Wild N Out with Hip-Hop mogul Nick Cannon. This show is coming back after being canceled last year due to Anti-Semitic comments from the series host. Because of its battle rap nature, Unrapped will be in direct competition with the Ultimate Rap Leagues various programming, specifically their Ultimate Madness franchise.
