The (White) Rapper Show debuts tonight on VH1

Kevin Federline may not yet have his own reality series, but VH1 hints as to what that could look like with its new series ego trip’s The (White) Rapper Show. It debuts tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET, after the 90-minute debut of I Love New York.

Hosted by Michael “MC Serch” Berrin, the series starts as “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,” according to VH1. That house is called “Tha White House,” and among the drama we can expect from it includes the following conflict: “John Brown finds himself in a heated encounter with Sullee, Persia… and Persia’s dildo.”

The AP says the series “is both a parody and commentary on race in hip-hop.” ego trip’s Elliott Wilson says it’s even more than that. “The power of the show is that when you hear the title, you already have images of what it’s going to be, whether good or bad. Most of them are thinking, `Oh, it’s going to be some dumb nonsense.’ But it’s not that — it’s smart.”

An executive producer Ken Mok, who produces Top Model, tells the AP the show is “really about race and the context of white culture verses hip-hop culture.”
