Lil Jon, Fat Joe Tapped To Host ‘Pimp My Ride International’

Lil Jon and Fat Joe have been tapped to host MTV’s new series Pimp My Ride International this fall, the network announced.

MTV International secured the rappers, who will follow the show’s formula of transforming junk cars into luxurious vehicles.

The company has also replaced the original mechanics from West Coast Customs with staff from All Stoff Garage, which was founded in Alkmaar, Holland in 1988.

In December 2005, West Coast Customs owner Ryan Friedlinghause announced he had amicably ended his association with MTV and Pimp My Ride.

Friedlinghause is launching a new show on the Discovery Channel that will customize high-end vehicles.

MTV Networks International’s channels include Music Television, VH1, Nickelodeon, TMF (The Music Factory), VIVA, Paramount Comedy, Game One and FLUX.

The network reaches a total of 429.1 million households in 169 countries and 22 languages.
