VH1 Preps ego trip’s Miss Rap Supreme

A year after ego trip’s The (White) Rapper Show debuted on VH1, the ego trip collective is returning this spring with a new spin on their successful reality show. According to an article in the Hollywood Reporter, the new show, called ego trip’s Miss Rap Supreme, will feature a search for the next great female MC. 3rd Bass’ MC Serch will be returning to host the show, and rapper Yo-Yo, who broke onto the scene in 1990 as a protege of Ice Cube, will be joining him as this season’s co-host.

ego trip is best known for their independent ’90s hip-hop magazine, which spawned two successful books, 1999′s Book of Rap Lists and 2002′s Big Book Of Racism. In 2004, they began their relationship with VH1 by producing the hour-long special TV’s Illest Minority Moments, followed by 2005′s three-part series Race-O-Rama. On The (White) Rapper Show, which debuted in January 2007 to 2.3 million viewers, Atlanta rapper Shamrock beat out the show’s 12 other contestants to win $100,000.

    what the fuck is that?is that blackface.it looks like something out of a fuckin minstrel show.take that ugly shit off of here

      this is the Biz Markie puppet from the old 1990 Masta Ace video. “me & the biz” or “just rhymein’ with biz.” i forget which.

      anyhow if you were watching MTV raps, circa 1990 this thing was a staple, and if i’m not mistaken Ed Lover & Dre used to have it on sometimes. ( i may be mistaken).

      if there were a hip hop museum, this would be like Archie Bunker’s chair in the Smithsonian.

      I just didn’t want anyone to think this was something detgrading

      • BIG O

        fuck al you old head ass niggas.im 21 and was 4 years old when thisshit came out youshowing your own age.how can anyone say i don know hip hop cuz of some ugly ass doll.my first rap experience was heavy d.i got everything from then on on lock.i got love and will listen to anthing classic(amerikkka mst wanted,18th letter,lllmatic)but biz markie was no where near a classic mc and anyone would tell you old fuckers that!!!!

          “biz markie was no where near a classic mc and anyone would tell you old fuckers that!!!!”

          Sonathan: I’m 2 years older than you and can tell you:

          BIZ MARKIE IS A CLASSIC MC

          No he’s not lyrical or gangster, but this hip hop shit also has a side that’s about having fun and being a wlid ass dude. That dude is Biz Markie. He goes much deeper than “just a friend”. He also has one of the most fabeled record and shoe collections in the world. It all boils down to this simple point:

          YOU DISS BIZ MARK YOU DISS YOURSELF

    • Kase

      i see yall are not familiar with the biz doll.

    • yall dont know shit

      THATS THE BIZ MARKIE PUPPET YOU FUCKING IDIOT. FEATURED ON THE MASTA ACE 12″ ME AND THE BIZ.
      YALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED.

  • nappy_pappy

    how was the “white rapper show” a success? i mean yea ppl watched it but damn where’s Shamrock now? I saw John Brown with a fuckin song on here but no Shamrock? lol

  • Engine Engine # 9

    That’s the Biz Markie doll Master Ace used in the Me & The Biz video. It’s also ego trip’s mascot/logo

  • Dub Sac

    The “white rapper show” was successful in so far as it was entertaining (at least in my opinion – Lord Jamar punking the whole group made me laugh.) These things are never about skills, they’re about drama. I can’t wait.

  • bbatson

    It’s the biz…..

    I thought that thing was MIA.

  • Mr.Wang

    Honestly these rappers that come out of reality shows don’t become big they just horrible wannabe motherfuckers. People cashing in on Rap is a crazy trend.

    #1 thing wrong with Hip-Hop today:

    Young fans have no interest/knowledge/respect for the past, pioneers, or Hip-Hop history.

    Ask any 16 year old Rock fan about the classics and they’ll know all about The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zepplin, etc.

    Is that blackface? That’s the infamous Biz! If you don’t know that puppet, you don’t know hip hop. Sorry.

  • Intelligencia

    yeah, you idiots, by the name on the “ugly thing,” you can obviously see that it’s some kind of Biz Markie puppet. Duh! use context clues, you clowns!

  • jermaine lane

    king of the burbs!
    that show was stupid as fuck

  • Forget it b, its over

    You morons, thats the biz doll!

    Go read a book.

  • dolo

    Thats da bizmarkie doll from Masta Ace song ” me and the biz ” . do ya hw folks

  • gimpfreezone

    I think that there should be some very strict rules for this show, it should be about SKILLS, not about who is the skankiest or can dress and act like a ho, not about some white girl with grills in her teeth thinking she is a female Lil Wayne…Skills.

    Let’s see if they can pull this off, I thought Persia could rhyme her ass off, but the others were wack, especially that John clown and that ugly UK ho.

    The problem is though, this show will be forgotten…who talks about the White Rapper Show these days and who won again?

    How could you not recognize the Biz puppet? It even says “Markie” on it!

    When Soulja Boy wins a Grammy, I’m blaming these know-nots.
