According to a representative of CJ E&M, Mnet is in the process of preparing a program called “High School Rapper” (tentative title) where high school students participate in a rap battle tournament as representatives of their school. They are currently taking applications for participants.
The representative continued, “‘High School Rapper’ is expected to be broadcast as a pilot program and the specific structure is yet to be decided.”
Mnet’s contribution to the popularization of hip hop through the success of related programs such as “Show Me The Money” and “Unpretty Rapstar” is adding to the anticipation for “High School Rapper” as well.
