50 Cent is teaming up with US TV network ABC to develop a new celeb-based rap talent show. According to Deadline, the in-development programme is called ‘Unrapped’ and is being created for ABC by Fiddy’s G-Unit Film & Television company and production firm SFO Entertainment.

Format-wise the new show will be pretty standard, in that participating celebs will be coached by mentors from the world of hip hop and will then take part in a series of rap battles until an overall winner is found.

50 Cent and G-Unit Film & Television were recently involved in another show that aired on ABC, the legal drama ‘For Life’, which had two series last year and is now on Amazon’s free streaming service IMDb TV.

Confirming the new project, the rapper said: “I am excited to expand my relationship with ABC. ‘Unrapped’ brings G-Unit Film & Television’s ability to put incredible music and musical talent on screen to the competition space”.
