Home renovation

Lil Jon gets his own home improvement show on HGTV

Lil Jon is switching gigs and transforming homes on a TV screen near you this summer.

According to a report by page 6 Tuesday, May 18, the hip-hop rapper and DJ landed a home improvement show on HGTV titled Lil Jon wants to do what? The premise of the program is that Lil Jon offers “skeptical homeowners startlingly unconventional home improvement ideas that seem impossible to execute.”

HGTV has partnered with the rapper for his creative vision. “Its fearless team can take Lil Jon’s creative vision — to maximize features that owners overlook or never considered — and make it a reality,” the company said in a statement.

The Atlanta native also opened up about his latest venture in his own statement. “I love walking into someone’s house and turning it upside down,” he shared. “When people hear my name, they automatically think…fun! That same energy also applies to my designs. I don’t like following design trends, I’d rather be the trendsetter.”

Lil Jon will be working with Anitra Mecadon of DIY Network’s Mega Dens. The show, which would be filmed this month in the ATL region, is scheduled to air this summer.

He also teased the new program via his Instagram page yesterday.

“SOOOO I’VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR A TIME AND CAN FINALLY TALK TO YOU ABOUT MY NEW SHOW WITH @anitramecadon ON @hgtv “WHAT LIL JON WANTS TO DO? !!”WHERE I….WELL YOU JUST HAVE TO WATCH,” Jon captioned the post.

HGTV also tweeted about Jon’s renovation program. “Lil Jon, winner of the GRAMMY Award, reveals his passion for renovation in ‘Lil Jon Wants To Do What?’ Follow Lil Jon and expert designer/builder Anitra Mecadon (Mega Dens) as they woo do-it-yourselfers with a not-so-typical take on their renovations. Coming this summer! reads the tweet.

Lil Jon has clearly been working hard. Earlier this month, he launched an NFT collection on digital marketplace platform, OpenSea, which features the rapper’s iconic ad-libs and catchphrases, beats from 2005 and a bling-encrusted pimp mug.
