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.
