    South Korean music channel Mnet has begun auditioning new rappers but the selection process will last for only a month.

    The legendary survival show that brought fame to K-rappers and hip-hop artists through eight seasons is back again - Show Me the Money has opened auditions for the contestants, but the process will end on 21 August.

    Recruitment is open to anyone regardless of their experience: everyone can apply through official e-mail address, via the official website of the show, or through Instagram.

    The season is scheduled to air in the second half of the year.

    The first season of the show began back in 2012, and the eighth season was broadcast last year. The show has been changing its format every season, but the basic concept remains unchanged - usually a classic battle between musicians until only one rapper survives.

    A lot of producers, known both underground and worldwide became mentors and judges during all eight seasons of the show. For example, Loco, who won the competition in 2012, returned as a mentor in the fourth season.

    Big names in the hip-hop industry took part and helped to find and develop talents such as Swings from Just Music, Simon Dominic, Gray and Jay Park from AOMG Entertainment, YG Entertainment's Kush & Zion T, Zico and Giriboy. Rappers from idol groups have also taken part in the show, including Minho from Winner and Bobby from IKON.

    Fans of the show are happy about the upcoming new season:
