DMC Shopping Reality Show

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Darryl “DMC” Daniels is currently developing an innovative new reality show competition entitled The Kings of Rap.
The hip-hop competition series still is in development and is being shopped around to networks, according to Josh Gross of its PR firm, Seldin Gross Communications.

On the New York-filmed series, aspiring hip-hop artists will compete for the chance to earn a record deal, but they must create music that is not offensive. “Their music cannot glorify violence, degrade women or include the use of profanity,” reads a press release from IME.

“There are so many talented kids out there who don’t get heard or don’t get signed because they’re not controversial enough, or they’re too positive,” DMC is quoted as saying in the release. “That amazes me.

“The spirit of hip-hop was always about changing the world or yourself, not with a gun or with denigrating or offensive words, but by being effective with your mind. This is a time when everyone is talking about change and we as a country have the opportunity to make a difference. We can start by changing what we have to say to each other, and what we say to our kids through music.”
