When Is HGTV's Lil Jon Wants To Do What? Being Released?

While plenty of HGTV shows are hosted by couples who have a fair share of professional building and design experience, the network also gives opportunities to popular celebrities from other parts of show business. That's why you might be incredibly excited about the new show that will feature former "Parks and Recreation" star Retta, as well as the home renovation show that will be hosted by rapper Lil Jon.

"Lil Jon Wants To Do What?" made news back in May 2021 when outlets such as Page Six reported that the music industry figure had a new gig. Explaining that each episode will see the star giving homeowners the kind of renovation tips that they surely wouldn't have come up with on their own and might, at first, appear to be both unimaginable and unattainable, it sounds like this show will feature Lil Jon just being himself while also using his style savviness to help others in a somewhat unexpected way.

"I love walking into someone's house and turning it upside down," Lil Jon said in a statement (via Page Six). "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." There's no doubt that this show will be interesting. That surely leaves you eager to know when it will premiere!

Lil Jon is excited for fans to see something different

"Lil Jon Wants To Do What?" will surely be unlike any HGTV show you've ever seen. That's because, while it will feature renovations, Lil Jon plans to use his wildly creative nature to both turn homes into something unexpected as well as entertain audiences.

"I'm excited for fans to see a totally different side to me," Lil Jon said during a virtual panel that was a part of the Television Critics Association tour, according to Discovery. "I've always been passionate about design, so this show was a no-brainer. I get to bring my unique aesthetic and vision to all sorts of different families' homes ... let's go!"

Also featuring Lil Jon's friend and costar, expert builder and designer Anitra Mecadon, who is both undaunted by the rapper's ideas and able to tackle whatever is thrown at her while the cameras are rolling, "Lil Jon Wants To Do What?" is set to premiere on Monday, May 2, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
