Minnesota native on 'Ego Trip's (White) Rapper Show'

Premiering tonight on VH1 at 9:30 p.m. Central Time, Ego Trip's The (White) Rapper Show is the kind of reality program that would sound terrible if it weren't created by Ego Trip, the defunct and genius hip-hop mag whose editors are responsible for two classic books and a couple previous VH1-aired bursts of radicalism and satire: TV's Illest Minority Moments (re-airing Wednesday) and Race-o-Rama. Upping the suspense, a native Minnesotan is in the mix: L.A.'s Jus Rhyme from Austin. Hosted by MC Serch of 3rd Bass, the series is described as follows by VH1: "Ten eager (white) rappers from across the country arrive in the South Bronx with nothing except their skills, heart, and dreams of winning $100,000. As they meet their new neighbors, will they be accused of infiltrating a 'hood that has been doing just fine without them? Meanwhile, back at Tha White House, the show's funky headquarters, John Brown finds himself in a heated encounter with Sullee, Persia... and Persia's dildo. After the dust settles (and, trust us, it's dusty in that crazy-ass crib), Serch enlightens one rapper by teaching a very heavy lesson." (Hat tip to Afroteck at DUNation.) Update: Here's an interview with Jus Rhyme in yesterday's Pi Press (thanks Amy!).
