JERMAINE DUPRI and Flavori Unit's QUEEN LATIFAH Social Activist BERNICE KING Also Makes Special Appearance

NEW YORK, NY (NOVEMBER 22, 2016) - The rules of The Rap Game have been broken! From executive producers Golden Globe winner and Grammy nominee Queen Latifah and Grammy winner Jermaine Dupri, the third season The Rap Game kicks off Friday, January 13 at 10pm ET/PT as Tally, season two fan favorite, returns for redemption to battle it out against four new young rappers. This season, social activist Bernice King, the daughter of Coretta and Martin Luther King Jr., makes a special appearance. Rappers Da Brat, Bow Wow, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Jon Jon, I Heart Memphis, Jeezy, and Jadakiss, singer Kelly Rowland, and producers Brian Michael Cox, Zaytoven, and Mike Kalombo, join Dupri to help guide the artists to victory with a recording contract with Dupri's label, So So Def Recordings.

The Rap Game fueled Lifetime to rank as the #1 cable network in its Friday time period among W18-49 and W25-54. With a median age of 33, the show continues to be Lifetime's youngest series for 2016.

The rappers this season are include:

Nova, 16, Reading, PA - Full of personality and drive, Nova works hard honing his craft because he knows he's good enough to make it. Surrounded by an incredible support group, Nova is managed by his uncle Ekko who will stop at nothing to help him achieve his dream of becoming the next big rap star.

King Roscoe, 13, Atlanta, GA - It takes a village and Al'Dreco Jones, aka King Roscoe, has an entire team managing him from an image consultant, to vocal coach, to his mom-ager Deishonna. King Roscoe's interest in music began when he was in a writing group at school which eventually led to his mom taking him to a recording studio. His first single "All A Student" received 88K views on YouTube.

Tally, 16, Nashville, TN - Audiences were first introduced last season to the talented teen from Nashville whose rapping abilities were discovered accidentally after rapping the hook to a song her sister was singing. But after being cut from the competition, Tally is back with a vengeance. She's ready to prove that this time around, she has what it takes to win.

Deetranada/Dee, 15, Baltimore, MD - After performing in her seventh grade talent contest, Dee knew she wanted to be a rapper. Her brother Jermaine, a successful hip hop dancer, realized her potential and now, they are working together to build up her social media presence. Jermaine has no doubt that his little sister's talent and work ethic will push her to the top.

Flau'jae, 12, Savannah, GA - The youngest of the group, rapping is in Flau'jae's DNA. Shortly before she was born, her father Camouflage, an up-and-coming rapper with a record deal was tragically murdered. Camouflage's friends, Master P, Birdman and Lil Boosie among others, recognized Flau'jae's early talents and along with her mother Kia, have helped to mentor the budding rapper. Even though she never had the chance to meet him, Flau'jae knows her dad would be proud that she is carrying on his legacy.

Produced by Intuitive Entertainment, The Rap Game is executive produced by Kevin Dill and Mechelle Collins, Ted Iredell, Perry Dance and co-executive produced by Adam Schor. Lifetime's Mariana Flynn, Mary Donahue and Colleen Conway Grogan also executive produce in addition to Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere from Flavor Unit, and Jermaine Dupri.
