Another day, another reality show. If you’re tired of the hair pulling, drink throwing, backstabbing reality shows that fill the airwaves, then BET’s Hip Hop Sisters may be just the thing for you.
The show will follow veteran rappers Monie Love, Yo Yo, MC Smooth, Lady of Rage, MC Lyte and youngster Lil Mama as they attempt to resurrect their careers. MC Lyte is an executive producer of the show.
HIP HOP SISTERS is a docudrama following the relaunch of six female rappers’ careers. MC Lyte, The Lady of Rage, Yo Yo, Smooth, Monie Love and Lil Mama join forces and declare themselves the Hip Hop Sisters. Their goal is to reclaim their titles as the Queens of Hip Hop —as they manage their drama-filled personal careers and lives and search for the next great female MC.
The name of the show comes from MC Lyte’s non-profit Hip Hop Sisters Network that promotes positive images of women of color and helping people with education. The celebrity advisory board includes Jada Pinkett-Smith, Melanie Fiona, Chilli, Faith Evans, Kelly Price and Russell Simmons.
