Mob-Linked Rapper Filming With ‘Jersey Shore’ Creator
Mob-affiliated rapper Tony Testa, who’s shot videos with the likes of Brooklyn rhymer Uncle Murda, will be getting more face-time in front of a camera as the Long Island native is currently filming a reality show with the creator of famed MTV hit series ‘Jersey Shore.’
According to the NY Post, ‘Jersey Shore’ creator Anthony Beltempo is in the works to develop a reality show starring Testa and his family. Beltempo “is working on a show around Testa and his family on Long Island. They are a wild bunch,” claims a source close to the rapper.
Testa, nephew of jailed mob boss Joseph Carmine Testa, is currently working on a forthcoming album, ‘I Am Tony Testa,’ and oversees three tanning salons that he owns. The premise of the show would document the burgeoning rapper’s attempt at a hip-hop career, his business ventures as well as his interactions with family, who all live in houses on a cul-de-sac in Commack, N.Y.
A rep for Testa confirmed that the ‘Jersey Shore’ creator has been working alongside him, saying, “They have been shooting him with his family.”
On the music front, Tony Testa joined rappers Lil’ Flip and Scattaman during the Family Business tour in March, which hit 34 cities.
