    I knew it was gonna be out of Nova and Dee. I was rooting for the both of them. But he went with Nova becuz he has been the most consistent and is the most polished one and is already ready. Dee is a beast but sometimes her nerves get the best of her and dats the only bad thing I noticed about her. But I luv her aggressiveness in her bars. She has something special and will succeed in the industry if she continues to fight for it. But JD promised to keep in touch with her and Roscoe. And Roscoe was the most improved but only stood out the last few weeks and wasn’t consistent enough. He had one of the best performances, but needs a lot of growth and coaching but he’s 12. There’s nothing wrong with Fly’s speech, it’s those braces dat alters her speech, it’ll definitely make a difference when they come off and should’ve waited til they came out. Braces would effect anybody’s speech while rappin, but needs to work on her stamina too cuz she was so out of breath dat she missed a few words. Nova’s Uncle was a good brother for taking in his sister and her kids, he’s also a good manager and I see him staying in dat line of work. Nova is too damn cute but talented. Most say he was cocky, he was but dats becuz he knew wat he possessed so his cockiness only came from confidence which you have to have to write and perform. Now I gotta go watch S1 and 2, this was my first season dat I watched, and just started watching S4 and luved every episode!

  • Chantel

    I know it take some time to develop them but at least one of them should be poppin know.

  • Mimi ThimSlicc Jones-Morgan

    Exactly

  • ThaRealMrsPeterson

    I’m gonna keep it real I didn’t want Nova to win because he is already to damn cocky. But I knew he would because of his look is appealing for the girls, he has swag and the boy got bars. He is a instant money maker. I do hope that Roscoe conditions his self so he can have more indurance. I believe he can be something great. Dee is a beast but I think she needs to find her true self still.

  • Cee

    Let’s not pretend… the main reason Dee did not win the contract was because of her manager… he was terrible in comparison to Ekko, not saying her brother is a bad person, but he should have remained her cheerleader from back in Baltimore. I understand she is less experienced then the other artists (Performing, photo shoots, etc.), so I truly appreciate the platform this show was for her. I’m certain her fan base has quadrupled and JD already said that he planned to work with her again. Nova one because he was a complete package — not just the look, the sound, the style, the hunger, and the love, but he comes with an excellent manager, as well. JD makes hit records that appears to provide residual income for the artist, but I hope this newer generation of so so def is able to accomplish more than one hit record. These kids are all so talented, I really want to see them soar on many levels and be successful. I am so annoyed with Tally… why put up a fight and bother to be so defensive if you can’t even stand your ground. Everybody sees that you are a girl and you are white and you enjoy rapping – – you are not the first and you won’t be the last… if you think about Eminem, he allowed his talent and his work ethic to speak for itself. Nobody really fazes the fact that he’s white… We just know he is a bit crazy and that he is a dope rapper. I feel like Keyshawn should’ve taken her spot — I don’t know that he would’ve won, but he was hungry enough to make his way into a cypher, on the show, allow people to find out about him she was a waste to have walked out on the second to last challenge

  • Mia

    Tory Lanez did/is doing it!

  • Mia

    1000000000% Agree!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Akire

    Right just because you Won on the show means your the Winner American Idol proved that years ago. I think Dee will prevail and be much better than Nova because it’s her passion and she is different. Look @ Chance so a record deal means nothing. Look at Chance.

  • LAFnWulf

    I am almost positive that everyone knew nova was gonna win..He’s mainstream material.. I honestly think he may be the only artist on SoSo that will make himself known on bigger screens and scenes since Bow Wow within time. Goal is to not have your career end before the age of 30 though.. I’m glad Dee didn’t win even though I was heavily rooting for her and I say that because I think she would have had a hard time fitting in the poppy side of Rap and that’s JD core and main market he is trying to target easier money, and that could lead to another explanation as to why he only works with kids…

    Anyways..
    Deetranada, it would be a smarter move for her to be independent. It’s 2017, best advice to give any musician is to not look for a record deal.. you might as well go to college and place yourself in a -$30,000+ Debt to work for people that didn’t even need that expensive piece of paper..
    Record deals will soon become obsolete you don’t need a million dollar studio anymore.. it’s more like $500-$10,000 studio( Bryson got a Grammy for an album that was pretty much $500 studio quality)
    Social Media ( franchise & marketing) FREE
    You can shop and find your own venues
    Then you have iTunes, Spotify, etc to sell your music on because lets be real no one buys actual albums any more..

  • Sean Hutson

    JD is the Shit…. Giving opportunities to today’s youth….empowerment! Tally is whack… I would never support her music…. Jasmine, deserves a better artist… Her skills as a manager far outweighed her sister’s talent…

  • ichigo kurosaki

    Flae Jae didnt improve throughout the entire series you could tell she was loosing her breath during her performance

  • Morgan Traci Folarin

    So glad my boy Nova won! Idk why everybody hating. Rappers are supposed to be cocky anyway

  • Ancient Wisdom

    I called Nova to get that chain from day1! He is & was the most ready. Seeing that his family was JUST living in shelters, he needed this the most. The Most High was watching out for his family! I wanted Dee to get it after watching the entire series. I pray she goes all the way up! Roscoe is the man with the plan. I pray for his success as well. Bless up to Flae Jae. Tally….crickets!

  • Cubanita

    Nova does deserve it , but I feel like Dee does too, she showed more growth and versatility , he probably chose Nova because all the girls will love him and actually pay to watch his shows, his fan base will be bigger. Hopefully JD works with Dee though.

  • A_CUTECRITIQUE

    Jd explained in an interview. He said he filmed three seasons in a year and it takes a year to get them ready they are also going on tour this summer

  • Loverai

    Lmao man said thottettes im cryinn

  • Chantel
  • Chantel

    Mama Deee!!!!! That song is actually my almar clock in the mornin!!!

  • Chantel

    Yep ,its all about what’s good for business!!!!

  • Chantel
  • Chantel

    We are 3 seasons in why arent these kids all over the radio or charts??

  • LiLondon

    Her attitude def needed working on, but she is a deeper musician.

  • MChantye

    ha, thottettes

  • MChantye

    yep you so so right, that Tally is a quitter, and quitters never win

  • MChantye

    well alrighty then, good show, I hope all of them succeed in the rap game, Tally never needs to show her face, she is a quitter..

  • Chastity Solomon

    Both was good but ur right nova id good with marketing and drawing in those dollars

  • Lady Imz

    Poor Dee, I really believe for artist development she could have been great, nova I loved him but I feel he didn’t really show as much growth or change but again that’s my opinion, JD picked the winner so good on him.

    Dee don’t worry your time is now

  • Deondrae Martin

    I think he always pick the best and the worst who is expected to lose.i felt King Roscoe was the worst to me but he proved me wrong.Fly…..the talent just ain’t really there.She can do a lil bit but those braces messing up her clarity when i already don’t like how she rap

  • Deondrae Martin

    I wanted Dee to win. She was by far my favorite. I just loved her style.Nova was one of my favs but his cockiness was not appealing.I just felt Nova was too cocky when Dee didn’t have somebody like Ekko who seemed like he could make most of them just as good as Nova.I’m happy because Nova deserved it because he was obviously the best. You could market him to the masses.

  • ria

    Dee was robbed but what’s new with this show

  • Leah
  • SarahJFromLA

    I feel like D was truly passionate about her art & alot of times wanted/expected things to be perfect but when they werent she reacted…in my opinion knowing someones passion & why they reacted a way is far better than not knowing why someone is always arrogant…humble yourself Nova cuz D had me on a deeper level, she got the chain & dont even know it. & that is not to discredit Nova, hes super dope but put a bad taste in my mouth not wanting to support him, King Roscoe was my absolute fav to watch & i think he has “it” maybe even acting, Fla sorry baby but i could only understand 1 sentence & thats taking a collection of 1 word from every episode/rap equalling out to a sentence, but no worries Fla got it too she just needs a couple of years training with some speech classes that will help her clarity & breathing

  • Tan Eyes

    I actually think low key JD really wanted Ekko on his team. He’d be great for artist development. Excellent manager fr

  • Shatariah

    It’s still a show. So they edit the show for Nova and Dee to go against each other. I’m sure he’s not as bad as they made it seem. It’s a show so they gotta edit it so it’s drama.

  • Loverai

    lmao my heart hurts …jheez i wanted my girl Dee to win.
    I dont fuck with Nova’s swag at alllllll .. hes ii but he aint all that in my book
    I loved Roscoe <3
    Flau Jae needs to grow up .. she aint ready
    Tally.. nvm lets not

  • Midnight Flames

    same lol

  • Midnight Flames

    and there u have it cocky ass nova 1 *sigh* why just y

  • rere

    Let’s be honest, Nova won b/c he is better for marketing …pretty boy, he can rap (he’s arrogant as well) BUT D!! Should have won that period! She came through every time. Roscoe I liked him as well, Fly ..she was wack, never understood what she was saying

  • shasyl

    Nova set was wack i had to forward it no hate on him but he is not it.

  • Von Schofield

    exactly she has a terrible attitude she needs to mature..ppl say nova is arrogant i dont see it hes just confident i didnt see him disrespect anyone in the house

  • Von Schofield

    u scrolled down..dont read the comments before u watch thats on u playa

  • shasyl

    You spoil it for me but am watching just cause of king Ros n my girl D

  • shasyl

    BOOHOO,Am not supporting anything from nova,he is a bitch.

  • Doowop

    Roscoe used to say in his lyrics “I have school, then a show, then I hit the studio”
    They probably got homeschooled.

  • Doowop

    Accurate af lol. Nova can rap, I’m not taking that from him. But honestly, we know why he was picked fr.

  • Doowop

    And then Mani tho? Really?
    Lol the boy didn’t get 1st place on the hitlist once, but he somehow won because of how the guest stars endorsed him and his “final performance”.. Nova is good, but he is not better than Dee. Period.

  • Doowop

    Yes it legit was the best season, the kids were more humble towards each other. Nova was an ass towards Dee from time-to-time, but other than that they got along. Idk wtf made JD decide to bring Tally back lol she was awful tbh and so boring. Out of all the aspiring young talented rappers, he decided to bring Tally back. Smh.

  • Nia

    Ever thought ya girl LOST due to looks? and a BAD ATTITUDE!!

  • Nia

    TRUE,from day one!

  • Doowop

    She was supposed to, JD picks are off.

  • Nia

    So So RIGHT, Tally was a waste of time, the 1st time she left, JD should
    have let her STAY GONE!!

  • Nia

    Girl you KNOW He is taller than Kevin,

  • Nia

    Your girl Dee had attitude issues, and I could NEVER understand her lyrics
    the right one WON!

  • Von Schofield

    lmao waaaay too corny..the kid they battled shouldve took her spot

  • Von Schofield

    exactly he’s ready to go rn…as great as she is she got some maturing to do

  • Von Schofield

    JD is doing old school things..so he’s doin artist development wit them..remember these are kids..it might take another yr for one of em to get rolling..they gotta platform tht other kids would kill for

  • Von Schofield

    AHHHH my boy Nova did it!!! i knew from week 1 he was gonna win he got it..hes even better than Mani..but obviously Dee wit Soso she was on the breakfast club wit him so she’s straight shes gonna be a star..this was the best season all these kids got star qualities and im rooting for all of em to succeed..i hope JD keeps doin this show cuz i love it..i give them credit i couldve never ever ever do the things they’re doing at 13-16 i was waaaay too shy..amazing season!!! congrats Nova!!

  • 2f7y

    Yea for a fact he’s gonna see mf himself and the fact he is atl bound jd loves that and he even said it himself they definitely will meet again no doubt about that .

  • 2f7y

    lol like I predicted who was leaving first, all in that order, in that order in that oder.

  • Just throwing this out there, are these kids supposed to be in school? Throughout this show I have yet to see a textbook or any mention of school…

  • Selena R Harrison

    Right I really felt King Roscoe’s performances with the big crowd always was entertaining with his dancing and all I just like to what him he’s very entertaining and likeable

  • Selena R Harrison

    I’m tired of him picking people that supposed to have this so-called look whatever happened to adjust Pure or straight up Raw Talent . I’ve seen Nova looks many of years now in the rap industry it’s time for some new looks different style different Vibe Dee should have won look at Miss Mulatto and Mike they want based off they Style and looks quote on quote whole package haven’t heard from either one of those winners nothing that I care to listen for I’m just saying.

  • MsKimmibaby
  • J World✨

    I agree!

  • Naomi O

    I know right, i was crying with her behind the computer screen.

  • Naomi O

    Really upset that Trannada didn’t win, she has just stayed humble through out this competition and she is a really good rapper to be honest. I Felt that Nova Was way too big headed through but the competition but on the other hand he was the most prepared, he knows who his target audience was he knew his style so i’ll give him that.

  • Naomi O

    King Roscoe’s like a mini mini version of Kevin Hart, haha he’s a cutie.

  • Lizzie308

    Dee had amazing lyrics no doubt but I think JD picks the winner on consistency Nova hasn’t really ever been at the bottom. He’s never fumbled his lyrics live…. he’s reliable and he will always have female fans….and his lyrics and flow are good. JD has to consider it all not just the lyrics. Nova deserved to win 100%

  • Girl3

    Yes by far the best season! Tally never had a chance though. She was always corny, and never got it.

  • Girl3

    Right! His parents are raising him right.

  • Sweet_Ness

    this was the best season. these kids are so talented I wish it was Tally ungrateful ass was never there another kid coulda had that opportunity

  • LiLondon

    Roscoe wasn’t ready yet but he is def one to watch. Not even just because of talent but his maturity is on another level! He is very grounded

  • LiLondon

    I think Nova won due to looks. He is talented by Dee is so much deeper.

  • Alexis Jassmine

    Hard work paid off and Nova came in ready to win. Everyone of those kids had amazing talent but Nova stood out with his flow and presence. Something about him screamed champion!

  • Branden Gee

    Ugh Nova is sooooooo freakin overrated that its disgusting! Dee had this in the bag, she is overall a better rapper…..But I guess Nova won because little girls lust after him like little thots in training

  • A_CUTECRITIQUE

    Such an emotional episode so proud of nova. Nova needs a mentor like drake. I was rooting for Dee but I hope someone signs her too bc she is amazing and hip hop needs her.

  • _ Exclusive.Angel _

    I really did want Dee to win, but I applaud Nova. The two of them are phenomenal. Honestly, I’m not mad, even Supa Peach was recently in the studio with Jermaine Dupri, so this is definitely not it for her.

  • Goddess

    NOVA & DEE are so talented but KING ROSCOE did his thang but I knew NOVA gna win proud of each and everyone of them.

  • Rokses

    Come on now, this is a whole production. Everybody on production know the kids background including JD. I’M sure considering the people he works with he heared similar stories and worse before. Only Flau kept bringing up her dad and Tally with her struggle

  • Rokses

    Yassssssss Nova you deserved, you got it.
    Nova and Dee are the most talented of the last 3 seasons by far.

  • Ash

    Nooooo I wanted dee to win

  • retrofreak

    Nah I wouldn’t say completely shallow, his verse on “Go harder” was the most polished on all levels, lyrics, flow, cadence, energy it was all there.
    Dee is dope, but she has work to do on her rhymes, case in point a lot of the time she doesn’t actually rhyme, listen to her last 2 verses on the rap battle.. She is talented, but I think if she had Ekko in her corner she’d be 50% better lyrically.

  • NewbieNubian

    But his lyrics were shallow and repetitive compared to Dee’s. From start to finish she killed Nova lyrically and then the arrangement of her song?! the whole entire package was dope af and let’s be honest here. The “whole package” just means conventionally attractive. Cuz if Dee looked like Tally and rapped like Dee she would have gotten that W all day.

  • retrofreak

    The point of the other competition is to see if they can step up, plus it’s good for TV lol..but in all honesty Nova was clearly the most gifted out of this seasons contestants.if you were to break down all the categories they were tested in Nova would be top 2 throughout… Flow wise he’s better than Deetrandada, Ekko was clearly the best manager which is an asset moving forwards, I also feel that Jermaine picked Nova to make up for not choosing J Prince last year, due to weak stage performance..Nova fits in with the current SoSoDef Rosta perfectly as he’s more lyrical than the current signings and ready to go now! ..No brainer!

  • NewbieNubian

    Stopped watching as soon as he said Dee’s name!!

    Ugh. first Ms Mulatto, then he brings Tally back now this shit. That’s it JD you’re cancelled.

    I’m playing but lowkey I’m not

  • Then what’s the point of the competition? What’s the point of mentors? What’s the point of the critiques? DEE hands down should have won! (in my feelings but not really but really lol)

  • retrofreak

    Nova deserved to win, he was the most consistent!

  • I so wanted Deetranada to win as well. I was soooo emotional during her performance and had the wavy voice talking to the screen like bruh, reasoning with JD why Dee should have won. Lyrically, D is way better than Nova. Dee gave a the best performance. She connected with the audience. Nova handed out flowers and lost the crowd for a second but his performance was the best?? Bruh nah bruh you buggin’!Please tell me how Dee is not ready vs Nova? If anything they are both ready. They are both on the same level.

    The family situation should not have been brought up in the mix. Everyone there had something to lose and gain. This competition would have made a major difference and changed lives for real for real. I did not like how and where the edited the “I’m homeless story.” If it had to be included, it should have been after they announced the winner. JD should not have known about Nova’s shelter story either just to be fair.

    Moving forward, I wish them all well and agreed, this season was the best thus far. They all had talent. Peace.Light
    Everyone please follow me on instagram @cinematiqmagazine

  • artiztah

    If it was just talent deatra would have been the pick but the thing is jermaines looking at how he can sell Nova is handsome, both young girls and lol grown women find him attractive meaning he’s getting solo def revenue, the kid can rap so he’s over all packaged, Deetra is beyond solo def she’s like a lady gaga, missy elliot appeal, watch in a few years once she really gets her craft going and her self with age shall be a huge star if she puts the work in.

  • J World✨

    Bruh I’m crying real tears

  • LaTonya Fields

    I can’t believe my girl didn’t win. We will see her again. #disappointed

  • Katrese Martin

    This season was the best!! I love king rosco
