Us Rating: ***

This sleek reality show chronicles five women enmeshed in NYC's high-stakes rap biz. The breakout star is the hilarious (and jealous and rage-prone) Chrissy Lampkin, who dates hip-hop star Jim Jones. The most appealing of the bunch? Fabolous' girlfriend, Emily Bustamante. Even though the two have a baby, she's rightfully fed up because he insists on letting fans think he's single! Viewers should be hooked. (VH1, 10:30 P.M.)
