Season 3 | Lifetime Televison

Tally, who competed on the second season of "The Rap Game," seeks redemption when she returns to battle four new rappers in the show's third season. A talented roster of rappers and producers -- including Bow Wow, Rick Ross, Fabolous and Jeezy -- join executive producer Jermaine Dupri as mentors to guide the aspiring rappers throughout the competition. The young singers trying to prevent Tally from winning in her second attempt are Nova, whose uncle/manager stops at nothing to help his nephew become the next big rap star; King Roscoe, whose "momager" is just part of an entire team that manages him; Deetranada, whose hip-hop dancer brother Jermaine works with her to build up her social-media presence; and youngest contestant Flau'jae, who has been mentored by the likes of Master P and Lil Boosie, who were friends with her late father. A recording contract with Dupri's label, So So Def Recordings, is up for grabs.
