N.W.A & Run-DMC's Kids

Rapper Spawn

Shopping Reality Show

12/10/2012 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's an homage to N.W.A and Run-DMC's sperm -- a brand new reality show starring the sons of rappers from the famous hip hop groups ... and it's currently being shopped to major networks ... TMZ has learned.

The name's the best part -- sources close to production tell us, "Seeds of Hip Hop" will star Dr. Dre's son Curtis Young, Eazy E's son Eric Lynn Wright Jr., MC Ren's son Anthony Dunbar, E'40's son Droop-E and Jam Master Jay's son Jason Mizell. They're all in their 20s.

We're told the show was created by music producer D'Extra Wiley (who was also a founding member of the 90's R&B group II D Extreme) and will be about the boys trying to make it on their own -- while trying to escape the shadows of their famous dads.

It's currently being shopped to VH1, TV-ONE, FUSE TV and BET.

We're told the production company behind the project is so confident the show will sell, it already has plans to start shooting in a month.

Well, I guess if you can't "grow some funk of your own", then just recycle your daddy's!
There are entirely TOO MANY reality shows!
(Producers like 'em 'cuz they're CHEAP to produce.)

A reality show with these guys? I see it already on the local evening news in Chicago.

It's hard to escape your fathers' shadow when you have a stage name like Lil Eazy E, or a name in the vein of your daddy like Hood SURGEON (DOCTOR Dre).

"trying to escape the shadows of their famous dads." So naturally, go on a reality show that flaunts that you're the sons of famous rappers to get out from the shadow of being their sons......great logic. Idiots.

Is there any such thing as an all male reality show? They won't get picked up without some female cast members to bring the drama.

Ate you kidding me?! It's about the boys trying to make it on their own? And why do you need cameras around to achieve that? And they are trying to escape the shadows of their famous dads? Yea yea yea, do that without the cameras and then I might believe you. I don't care for any celebrities, let alone their kids. Have a seat guys.

They should call the show "Talent Skips a Generation."

just make sure it's only run on BET, keeping 'em all in one place makes it so much easier to avoid

This is the way I see it. If you don't like what TMZ is putting on their site then don't look. If all your going to do is use racial words then don't read it. Its not everyone else's fault that your an idiot with a 6th grade education an you gave no talent. I bet the white folks on saying that N word crap won't say it to someone black. The only time you will say it is behind close doors an when no one can know your names. YOUR A BUTCH OF COWARDS
