One thing is for sure – the show that is currently being filmed in Atlanta will push the boundaries of what can be achieved with home renovation. ‘With ideas ranging from removing a ceiling to increasing the height of the living room for huge new windows, to gutting the basement to add a full-featured speakeasy for entertainment, Lil Jon and Anitra are pushing homeowners out of their comfort zones with nifty renovations and ideas that are sure to inspire daring and dramatic transformations. ‘
Lil Jon has shown that he has a longstanding passion for advising people on how to improve their homes: “I love going into someone’s house and turning it upside down,” he said. “When people hear my name, they automatically think … fun! The same energy applies to my designs. I don’t like following design trends – I’d rather be the trendsetter. ‘
Wondering what the actual designs will look like? So far, Lil Jon has kept it mysterious. In a caption for an Instagram post, he said, “SOOOO HAVE WORKED ON THIS SO DURING AND CAN FINALLY TELL YOU ABOUT MY NEW SHOW WITH @anitramecadon ON @hgtv.” LIL JON WANT TO DO WHAT? !! “WHERE I … Well, you just have to watch. ‘
