The Rap Game will feature Dupri working with celebrity guests like Usher, Ludacris, Da Brat, T.I. and Silento to mentor aspiring musicians.

Latifah and Dupri will serve as executive producers on the eight-episode series, which will premiere on New Year's Day (01Jan16) on America's Lifetime Network.

"Hip-hop is where Latifah and I came from so it’s great to be able to produce a television show that is derived from our roots," Latifah's Flavor Unit management partner Shakim Compere said. "The show is going to be a lot of fun."

The winner will land a contract with Dupri's label So So Def Recordings, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
