(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rap star Lil Jon will be one of the contestants on the upcoming season of Donald Trump’s hit show, Celebrity Apprentice.
According to TMZ.com, Lil Jon will be featured on the show alongside Survivor winner Richard Hatch, supermodel Niki Taylor and baseball legend, Jose Canseco.
Lil Jon and company will compete for a chance to win a $250,000 contract to run one of Trump’s companies in the elimination style competition reality series.
The rapper’s business acumen makes him a strong contender for the grand prize.
In 2010, Lil Jon ranked #20 on Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Kings annual list, pulling in over $5 million dollars the past year, with companies like his Crunk!!! energy drink, in addition to deals with Oakley Sunglasses and producing.
“Music over the last decade has turned more commercial and more pop again,” Lil Jon told Forbes in June of 2010. “Hip-Hop has started to become less commercial and less pop. Dance music is taking over as the number one type of music, and it’s cool for me, because I am a part of that.”
Other stars reportedly set to star in the new season include Dionne Warwick, Sugar Ray’s lead singer Mark McGrath and LaToya Jackson.
The new season of Celebrity Apprentice is set to debut next year.
