Lil Jon Scores His Own HGTV Home Improvement Show
Rapper Lil Jon will star in a home renovation show on HGTV.
The show — “Lil Jon Wants To Do What?” — will follow the Atlanta hip hop artist as he “offers skeptical homeowners startlingly unconventional renovation ideas that seem impossible to execute."
The show is slated to air this summer. Jon’s ideas apparently include gutting a basement to add a “fully decked-out speakeasy.”
Jon will be paired with co-star Anitra Mecadon of the DIY Network show, “Mega Dens.” The show is shooting this month around Atlanta.
The “Act a Fool” rapper said in a statement: “I love walking into someone’s house and turning it upside down. When people hear my name, they automatically think… fun! That same energy goes for my designs as well. I don’t love following design trends — I would rather be the trendsetter.”
** The show is the latest mixing a rapper and renovations. The DIY Network airs “The Vanilla Ice Project,” which shows the one-hit-wonder creating over-the-top properties and flipping them.
