The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Should Rappers Do Reality Shows? [Video]

So, I was just having this conversation with a very close friend of mine. Ours was interesting as it pertained mostly to a modern pop icon she adores and to whom I am impartial...and a lyricist *cough, Jumpoff Joe Budden, cough* who we both respected. Emphasis on that past tense. However, our views were the same. If you're already on, a reality show can put you away for good.

I don't think it's a good look to sign up for a reality show you have little to no creative control fact, I'd recommend to any artist I advise to stay far away from them and any women named Mona. They will expose you and skew the public's perception of your character. Music, Hip-Hop especially, used to be all about building a character. And that translated into record sales. Not saying that was the best thing, but I know for damn sure this new wave of over-exposure isn't the next best move.

They're America's guilty pleasure and the hip-hop community has embraced them, but does national exposure lead to more career success for rappers who do reality shows? Rap Radar's Elliott Wilson debates the pros and cons and delivers his verdict on this episode of The Truth.
