(Exclusive Interview) Introducing The Rap Game Season 3 Winner & So So Def’s Newest Signee: Nova
Executive produced by Jermaine Dupri and Queen Latifah, The Rap Game season three features five of the most talented tween and teen rappers from around the U.S. all vying for a contract with So So Def and an iced out chain. Deetranada, Flau’jae, King Roscoe, and Tally were all competitive contenders, but it was 16-year-old Reading, Pennsylvania’s Nova who won J.D over.
