Deb Antney Collaborates With ALLBLK To Find Next Female Rapper

With the rise in recent years of female recording artists like Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Scarlip, Ice Spice, Doja Cat, Latto, and a score of others, a reality competition show featuring female emcees seems like the right timing. And according to ALLBLK, that is exactly what music executive Deb Antney is presenting on the network this year.

The streaming service from AMC Networks announced the unscripted series will be hosted by Antney and will be titled, “Deb’s House.”

“I envisioned a competition show that deviates from the norm—one centered around personal growth and self-competition,” said Antney in a written statement. “Collaborating with (co-creator and co-EP) Rasheed to bring this vision to life has been an incredible journey. Witnessing the music industry veer away from artist development towards a focus on superficiality and explicit content prompted my desire to return to the core values of true lyricism and mentorship. The search for the next female rap sensation in “Deb’s House” is my way of reigniting that passion. The selection of our show as ALLBLK’s first commissioned competition reality series is truly thrilling. My sincere appreciation goes to my AMC Networks family, particularly Brett Dismuke, for their steadfast belief in this transformative project.”

Antney, who is affectionately known as “Aunt Deb,” is the mother of hip-hop recording artist and reality TV star, Waka Flocka Flame and has her own management company, Mizay Entertainment. The entertainment manager and founder/CEO has managed the careers of several high-profile artists, including Gucci Mane, French Montana, and Nicki Minaj.

“Deb Antney is no stranger to the AMC Networks family, appearing on popular WE tv series Growing Up Hip Hop AtlantaWaka & Tammy and Executive Producing the upcoming scripted series Bev Is Boss, said Brett Dismuke, Head of Content, ALLBLK & WE tv. “Ms. Deb is a pioneer and influential voice across the music industry who has discovered, established, and guided the careers of some of hip-hop’s most prolific and successful artists. We cannot wait for our ALLBLK audience to join the search and ultimately see who Ms. Deb crowns as the next iconic female MC.”

Deadline reported that the series will showcase eight female artists trying to mark their mark in the industry and will move into a shared house to compete to become Antney’s next “rap protégé.”
