MTV finally announced all the participating rappers and celebs for its new show Celebrity Rap Superstars, where well-known rap stars will help a wide array of celebs try to master the art of emceeing.
The show will premiere live tonight and feature Redman, Bizarre, Too Short, Bubba Sparxx, Kurupt, Jamal Anderson (former NFL running back), Jason Wahler (of the The Hills), Efren Ramirez (Pedro of “Napoleon Dynamite”) and DMC (of Run-DMC).
The previously announced participants include Perez Hilton (of gossip site perezhilton.com), Tone Loc, Warren G, McLyte, Da Brat, Shar Jackson (K-Fed’s ex-lady), Kendra Wilkinson (of reality show “The Girls Next Door”), Sebastian Bach (of metal band Skid Row), Countess Vaughn (of “Moesha” and “The Parkers”) and Kevin Hart (Greg on “All of Us”).
The show will last eight weeks and every week the contestants will perform covers of rap hits, write and perform their own rhymes and compete in freestyle competitions in front of a panel of judges and live audience. After each week’s performance the audience will vote for their favorite performance, and the celeb with the least amount of votes will be eliminated. The celeb emcee left standing will come out on top as a Celebrity Rap Superstar.
