Who Is King Roscoe On The Rap Game?

Friday, February 10, 2017
King Roscoe has reached a turning point on The Rap Game.  In episode 4 of season 3, "Poncho vs. Dashiki" Roscoe calls Jermaine Dupri out because of the Hit List.  Roscoe tells Jermaine that he doesn't understand how the Hit List works.  In episode 5 of season 3, "Roll Wit It" the rappers have to make up original dances.

Roscoe uses a broom to make his dance more creative.  The Hit List was based on social media reactions to the rapper's dance moves.  Roscoe was ranked number 4 on the Hit List and wasn't happy about it.  Keep your head up Roscoe!
