Rapping with the Stars could be coming to MTV

mtvPeople enjoy rap, and people enjoy reality television. So: why not combine them?

That seems to be the thought process behind Rapping with the Stars, a new reality series that could be popping up on MTV that, according to Variety, "features teams squaring off in [a] range of rap-oriented musical challenges."

Those "teams" consist of, naturally, a rapper and a celebrity. I wonder, though, how many rap-oriented challenges can there be? Other than freestyle, performing someone else's rap, or doing your own rap, what's left? Is there some kind of rap endurance race in which rappers must perform Run-DMC tunes while sprinting and pole vaulting cross country? Because there should be, I'd totally watch that.

If this show does become as popular as Dancing with the Stars, perhaps we'll start seeing more and more with the Stars-style shows, none of which I will watch.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING! BUT ARE THE RAPPERS GOING TO KEEP IT CLEAN-SINCE IT IS REALITY! AND IN MOST RAP VIDS AND RIPS,IT'S NOTHING BUT NEGATIVE UPON NEGATIVE! PLEASE! BRING BACK SOME ORIGINALITY TO HIP HOP. OWN IT! PLEASE DO NOT COME ON THERE WITH SOMEBODY ELSES' STYLE. IF THEY DO HAVE A IMATATION SET, THEN COOL, OTHERWISE,DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. RAP ABOUT BUSH OR SOMETHING THAT REALLY MATTERS. INSTEAD OF BARKING ABOUT BEING GANG-AFFILIATED,REPPIN' BLOOD TYPE CRAP, WHEN 9 x OUTTA 10 YOU ONLY BUST IN THE AIR B/C THE SKYS' BLUE!" BE REAL ABOUT YOUR WORK LADIES AND GENTS. TALK ABOUT SOMETHING OTHER THAN BEING GREEDY AND SELF-CENTERED!
