"This is a one-of-a-kind entertainment opportunity," Michael Bloom, senior vice president of unscripted and special-event programming, said in a statement. "Drop the Mic is a funny, authentic, high-energy series that brings together hip-hop, comedy and pop culture in a way we've never seen before. Method, Hailey, James, Ben and their team will make sure our celebrity competitors bring their 'A' game to the stage."
