The famed crunk rapper-producer of the Dirty South is spreading his talents in home design to HGTV. Lil Jon’s new home improvement series Lil Jon Wants To Do What? will follow him around as he helps various residents renovate and transform their homes, Page Six reported.
Known to keep the party atmosphere going, the self-proclaimed “King of Crunk” spoke about combining his talents for the new show in a statement. According to Page Six, he said “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,” he continued.
Lil Jon Wants To Do What? will be co-hosted by Anitra Macedon, an interior designer and host of Mega Dens, a home improvement series on the DIY Network. Page Six reports that one of Lil Jon’s renovation ideas for the show is to remove a homeowner’s basement and install a vintage speakeasy.
“His undaunted team can take Lil Jon’s creative vision — to maximize features that homeowners overlook or never considered — and make it a reality,” HGTV told Page Six about the unique venture.

No stranger to home designs, the Usher collaborator was hit with legal trouble in 2015 after he allegedly refused to pay several home improvement companies for their work on his Georgia home.
According to TMZ, the rapper owed as much as $22K. Though Lil Jon claimed it was a misunderstanding between him and his general contractor, it’s unclear whether he was able to resolve the matter.
