(CBS) Kevin Federline's ex-girlfriend, Shar Jackson, may be returning to television — as a rapper!
An inside source tells TheShowBuzz.com exclusively that the former "Moesha" star will be a contestant on MTV's "Celebrity Rap Superstar" which premieres next week.
"Celebrity Rap Superstar" is a live competition series that features a group of celebrity contestants, including gossip blogger Perez Hilton, coached by mentors like Tone Loc and Warren G.
Each week, eight contestants will be paired with their own rap star mentor, who will prepare them to master the art form.
The aspiring rappers will perform in front of a live audience and a panel of judges each week, covering popular rap songs. They'll also be creating their own rhymes and battling it out in freestyle rap competitions.
After each week's performance, the viewing audience will vote for their favorites and the contestant with the least votes will have to leave the show. The rapper left standing will be chosen as the winner.
The show premieres Aug. 30 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
