“The BackRoom is the place where freestyle will reign.  Truth is, we’ve missed having a place like Rap City’s “The Booth” and now we’ve got it.  In The Backroom, it doesn’t matter if you’re famous or not. You just have to be a skilled emcee,” says Stephen Hill, president of music programming and specials, BET Networks.
