Now, however, the show is back, with a new image.

Last week, in a studio on the southern outskirts of Beijing, the recording of a new season of The Rap of China began.

The show is scheduled to be aired later this year, but dates are not yet final.

Meanwhile, the producers of the show will not call the program "season 2" of the The Rap of China, and its Chinese title will change from Zhong Guo You Xi Ha (China has hip-hop) to Zhong Guo Xin Shuo Chang (New type of rap in China).

"It's a new show," Chen Wei, the vice-president of iQiyi and chief producer of the show, claims. "The mission to prove that China has hip-hop was completed last year.

"Now, the next mission is to give rap more Chinese characteristics and thus reflect the Chinese spirit in the new era."

Last year, 778 people registered as competitors for the show. But this year the number is more than 10,000.

The preliminary selection was done in five regional competitions and covered more than 100 universities in China. Now, 71 contestants will participate in the final round.
