AOMG CEO Jay Park recently took to social media to express his frustration with the editing by the producers of the hit survival reality hip hop show, ‘Show Me the Money 4 (SMTM4). Through a press release, the producers of the show have resolved the issue with Jay Park.
The producers also shared their apologetic hearts with the media and said, "We had to cut some parts out because of the limited broadcasting time to show all four producer performances. The parts that were edited out was decided to be released online in a full version video."
Show Me The Money is a South Korean television rap competition series held annually. First held in 2012, Show Me the Money has grown in popularity through its four seasons.
The concept of the show is to select a group of promising rappers from open auditions and whittle down that number through various assignments, with contestant survival dependent on the "producers," a group of experienced rappers who also serve as mentors. Eventually the rappers are divided into small teams headed by those producers. From there each contestant will face a different team's rapper in head-to-head single-elimination rounds where survival in the competition is dependent on votes from a live studio audience. In the third and fourth seasons, there was also a "Revival Round" in which contestants previously eliminated had a chance to continue in the competition.
