The Rap Game UK


The Rap Game UK
In this brand new series for BBC Three, UK rap legends DJ Target, Krept & Konan are putting seven unsigned MCs head to head in a battle to become the first ever signing to Krept & Konan’s record label.

Over six episodes the trio will be testing the artists in areas of the rap industry as they suss out who has got what it takes to get their name on the contract.

Each week the artists are set two tests in which they will be asked to step up and show who has the hardest bars, the song-writing props, or the stage presence to cut it in the rap world. The artists will be living under the same roof as they compete to change their lives.

In episode one, straight after the artists meet each other they find themselves in front of Krept, Konan and DJ Target, who are primed and ready to hear the artists’ first on-the-spot performance. Some fly high, others fluff their lines, but the competition begins there. After the artists have had their minds blown by the pad they will be staying in for the six weeks, the three mentors send another surprise to the downstairs studio: a challenge to ride the beat that made Krept & Konan household names.

As Konan says – no pressure.

The Rap Game UK will be produced by Naked Television and distributed by A+E Networks and is based on an already successful American format.

The contestants will live together for six weeks and develop their music skills, range, lyricism and natural ability. None of the acts will face elimination though and there will be no whittling down; the winner will be revealed at the end of series and will receive the coveted record deal from Krept and Konan.

The Rap Game UK aims to give ambitious and talented artists from across the UK the opportunity of a lifetime and they are looking for their next star.

The Rap Game UK are looking for participants aged 17 and up and for the chance to appear on the show and work with Krept, Konan, DJ Target and several guest mentors from the UK rap scene.
