This season’s lineup will include spotlights on three of Rap’s biggest stars: Lil Wayne, 50 Cent and T.I. .
The season will open with the Cash Money Records star on the 10th, airing at 10pm. Vh1 says that Lil Wayne is candid about his childhood and drive for fame.
October 8th’s show will chronicle the career of T.I. The Atlanta-based rapper will reportedly speak about his failed debut/tenure at Arista Records, the death of close friend Philant Johnson and his present jail sentence.
The following week, October 13, will tell the story of 50 Cent. The one hour will look at the rapper’s ascent from the tough Queens streets to building his G-Unit empire.
