Fox and ABC Both Have Sitcoms About the Lives of Rappers Heems and Nicki Minaj in Development
Both were announced this week and would make for an intriguing rivalry if they both went to series.
Fox is developing a series based on the life of Heems, formerly of rap group Das Racist, and how he lives with his folks in Queens, NY that’s cleverly titled Eat Pray Thug. Similarly, ABC is committed to making a pilot for a series based on the life of rap superstar Nicki Minaj and how she came to this country from Trinidad and Tobago.
Given the success of Empire, seeing the life behind the music, especially when it comes to rap and hip hop, is really in right now. Don’t be shocked to see more sitcoms set in this world coming up this pilot season.
