[With reality television still dominating pop culture with "Basketball Wives" and "Love & Hip Hop," New York rapper Uncle Murda a.k.a. UM and Atlanta's Young Dro offer SOHH readers their takes on the infectious trend.]
"Yeah, I check 'em out sometimes. I'm not gonna lie, I smoke a litle something and I might check them out," Murda told SOHH, referring to reality television shows. "Sometimes they're on and they're entertaining. I would entertain one. If it was done the right way and I had a lot of control over the sh*t and I could bring certain things to the forefront, like, you know, not just p*ssy and d**k and it's not just about feelings and emotions between females and n*ggas, I'd like to bring a little bit more reality to reality TV. That's if I were to be given the opportunity. I like to show some of the real sh*t that's going on too. Like some of the hood sh*t that's not being paid attention to. I'd like to bring a whole lot of things to the reality sh*t." -Uncle Murda a.k.a. UM
"Everybody asked me if I would do reality television," Dro told SOHH. "I don't know. I just don't want to say I want to be a reality star. I want to be a movie star. I read a lot. I coach a lot. But I really want to master the craft. I do know that whatever I do in life, I can do it if I put my mind to it and I can achieve it. I haven't really thought about what I need to do for that [reality television] craft so that I can present myself out to the world and open up. Once I get a chance to do that, I'll do so." -Young Dro
