Lil Jon is all set to be featured on his very own home renovation show on HGTV. The show will be titled “Lil Jon Wants To Do What?” where the artist will offer “skeptical homeowners startlingly unconventional renovation ideas that seem impossible to execute,” as per the release.
One of such instances turned out to be Jon recommending a complete removal of everything from the basement so that a “fully decked-out speakeasy” could be installed in there.
Lil Jon will be supported by co-star Anitra Mecadon, who originally starred in Mega Dens, DIY Network’s very own home network show. According to local reports, the show will be shot in Atlanta this month. HGTV adds in their statement for the show:
With ideas ranging from removing a ceiling to expand the height of the living room to accommodate huge new windows to gutting the basement to add a fully decked-out speakeasy for entertaining, Lil Jon and Anitra push homeowners out of their comfort zones with ingenious renovations and ideas that are sure to inspire daring and dramatic transformations. His undaunted team can take Lil Jon’s creative vision — to maximize features that homeowners overlook or never considered — and make it a reality.
The rapper himself revealed that it’s the love and passion for home renovations that drives him into this direction. He claimed that people think of him as someone who’s fun, and he wants to channel the same in his designs.
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 DIY Network & HGTV are both subsidiaries of Discovery, and AT&T is combining Discovery with WarnerMedia in a lengthy & gigantic merger which is valued at $43 billion.[Via]
