It’s old school versus new school in this comical look at the record industry through the eyes of a female hip-hop icon and her young protégé. Starring MC Lyte and directed by Evans, the light-hearted, half-hour sitcom follows the life of rap pioneer Lana Crawford (MC Lyte). When Lana discovers she is being dropped as an artist from her label, and in massive debt, the OG rap star is propositioned into managing her niece Lucious T (Precious Way, ABC’s Queens) …an up-and-coming Instagram rapper.
Generations collide as Lana and Luscious T try to find their footing, working and living under the same roof. Lana’s feisty best friend and personal assistant, Victoria “Vicky” Sims (Cloie Wyatt Taylor); Mekhai Crawford (Ron G., Insecure, Key & Peele) her younger, freeloading brother; High-power label executive and mastermind behind the new dynamic duo, Hazel Wilson (Rolonda Watts); and trusted recording engineer, Boston Jacobs (Wesley Jonathan, Craig Ross Jr.’s Monogamy), are all on hand to help this legend raise a star!
Executive Produced by Bentley Kyle Evans for Harvest Studio’s; MC Lyte, Lynn Richardson, and Laura Pallas in association with production company, Sunni Gyrl; and ALLBLK executives Brett Dismuke and Nikki Love.
