In the fifth episode of Mnet’s “Unpretty Rapstar 3” that aired on August 26 KST, the rappers of the show competed with rappers from “Show Me the Money.” While “Show Me the Money” is not gender-specific, males dominate the show, making this “Unpretty Rapstar 3” episode seem like a battle between male and female rappers.
Continuing from last week, Coolkid battled Yuna Kim in order to stay on the show, but lost against her although both made mistakes.
The remaining 10 contestants competed to be featured in track number four, produced by San E. First they would compete with “Show Me the Money” contestants and then the top ranking rappers would compete for San E’s track.
The 10 rappers from “Show Me the Money” were Boi B, Myundo, Woo Taewoon, Killagram, Hash Swan, Jindogae, Jung Sang Soo, J’Kyun, Jo Seung Yeon, and Yang Hong Won.
The “Unpretty Rapstar” contestants felt more pressure than usual with the audience showing more excitement for the male rappers of “Show Me the Money,” and the rappers themselves showing a lot of confidence that they will definitely win against the female rappers after watching their rehearsal.
