Generation Rap is a leadership program, sponsored by Carter Broadcast Group. About fifty area middle school and high school teenagers choose their own topics, produce the show, host the show, and discuss the topic live and openly on KPRS to facilitate entry into higher education and a sometimes unwelcoming adult world. However, each topic must be accompanied by a professional in the field or someone very knowledgeable about the subject matter.
 
Mentoring for these competitive teenagers is provided by Dyan Devereaux, India Williams, Jim "Grand Dad" Nunnelly, Jermain Reed, and Eric Wesson. The show was orginally conceived by Carl Boyd, and Prim Carter Williams. Generation Rap has received several national awards, including a literacy award from the Missouri State Teachers Association. Anyone wishing to schedule an appearance or request information should email Dyan Devereaux.

Jermaine Reed has spent half of his life involved in public service. A child from the Ivanhoe neighborhood, he made his way up through the Kansas City public school system at the height of busing and desegregation. He is a graduate of Northeast Senior High School.  As a youngster, more than a decade ago, he became active in Ad Hoc Group Against Crime. There, he met now Police Commissioner Alvin Brooks, who would become a role model and friend. Brooks—after much pestering—started to allow Jermaine to join him on his weekly talk show on Gospel 1590AM -KPRT, “Voices From Midtown,” to comment on issues like drugs, violence, education, and politics. In this way, Jermaine learned that his voice mattered—and that people would listen.
