Fabolous has shined some light on his upcoming reality show and promised fans that the series would be an inner look into his personal life as a daily father and entertainer.
According to F-a-b-o, he will sway away from having the show based on love challenges.
"Been shooting 4 a reality show 4 the last 2 days... I know..But no Ray J, Flavor Flav 4 love sh*t," he wrote Monday (September 28) afternoon. "Won't b nicknaming no chicks! I'm a new father, my son is 20 months and I'm still learning this father gig as I go.. So I'm tryin 2 balance that and being 'Fabolous'.. The show is based on da crazy, spontaneous, busy, traveling life of a entertainer & da loving, complicated, genuine journey of a new father. And somehow since the producers & backers of the show found out I'm a trending topic startin lunatic on twitter.. Twitter & my twiggas r in!" (Fabolous' Twitter)
Fellow Brooklyn, New York-based emcee Maino has also spoke about a possible reality show he has under wraps.
"It's 90 percent solidified," he said. "This is why I haven't really spoke on it because it's not etched in stone yet. But there's something reality-based and around MTV 'ish. It's about a white dude, he doesn't come from my culture. He doesn't understand the rap game, he doesn't understand what it means to be a rapper everyday. He lives with me and tries to like, understand what goes on in our world...Nothing I do is scripted. So if you see smack somebody then maybe it's really going down." (Shade 45 Lip Service)
G-Unit's Lloyd Banks is following the same route of moving from music to television.
"We are in talks right now for my own reality show," Banks revealed in an interview. "I don't know man...if that becomes a go then I'll definitely take that approach. You'll definitely see me on the screen soon. I have some scripts and things on the table. I'm a writer also so I like to create my own thing too. As an artist I don't want to limit myself, I want to write the screen and produce it and everything too." (Hip Hop Canada)
While details are still sketchy, Ryan Leslie recently broke news about forming a supergroup with Fab and Ne-Yo.
"We're talking about a triple-team collaboration that's really gonna hurt the game," he revealed. "Your boy Fab, the boy Ne-Yo and yours truly on the board. It's really gonna put a hurting on everybody...The table is open -- if you're bringing something to the table, you can break bread. It's about conceptualizing. It's not gonna be a project that's thrown together. It's gonna be a real roundtable, and we're gonna talk about really putting something in the atmosphere that contributes something that's never been done before." (MTV)
