White_rapperSince the first rhymes flowed in the parks of the South Bronx, most of rap’s major emcees, have been African American.  But from the mean streets of Brooklyn and Detroit, the likes of The Beastie Boys and Eminem emerged and dedicated themselves to boldly going where no white boys had gone before, the top of the Hip Hop world. 

Now, 20 years after the Beasties first exercised their "License to Ill," VH1 and ego trip have stepped in to search for the next great “White Rapper.”  Hosted by white rap legend Michael “MC Serch” Berrin of the group 3rd Bass, and producing legend Prince Paul (not pictured) and set in the in the birthplace of hip hop  — the South Bronx – “ego trip’s White Rapper Show” features 10 contestants representing from all over America who must battle their way through challenges designed to test their musical cred, knowledge of hip hop culture and their ideas about race. 

"ego trip’s White Rapper Show" is set to premiere on January 8 at 10:30PM ET with new episodes premiering every Monday at 10PM ET on VH1.  (Photo credit: Jason Kempin/FilmMagic/VH1)

    To ALL white rappers on the white rapper show:
    There are a couple things that I, Phenomenon, would like you to know. I am a white rapper and NONE of you can see me at rappin’ at any time of the day! Consider this a challenge. Hit me back @ my e-mail, number, or just send me a letter. My # is 770-795-7934. My addrss is 2740 Tiffany Drive Marietta Ga, 30008. E-mail me @ phenomenonoreo@yahoo.com. Are you up to the challenge or are you scared of a white boy? After all a 17 year old like myself couldn’t possibly take on an adult white rapper could I? Don’t under-estimate me. O, by the way, don’t call me slim shady. I’m phenomenon!!!!
