The iconic R&B rapper, known for club classic Get Low, has teamed up with a household favourite channel, HGTV.

Lil Jon partners up with home design expert and long-term friend, Anitra Mecadon, to help people renovate their homes.

They take on projects with sceptical homeowners who have ideas they don’t believe are possible to achieve.

The dynamic duo originally met when Anitra was enlisted in helping the hip-hop star renovate his own home.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: “I just really fell in love with doing this by putting my house together and pushing the limits of what I could do.

“Through working with Anitra, we just figured out that we work really well together, and Anitra’s husband, Adam, was like, ‘Y’all should really do this together for real because y’all work so well together, and y’all both have really good ideas.’

“And so we ended up shooting a pilot, and a couple years later, HGTV picked it up.”
