Move over Xzibit. New York radio personality Funkmaster Flex is prepping a new car customization show for MTV2.
XXLMag.com has learned that the series, dubbed Full Throttle, is set to premiere on the network this spring. In each 30-minute episode Flex will create the latest in vehicle modifications while special guests stop by his personal garage for auto advice. Diddy, 50 Cent, Lil Kim, Fabolous, Fat Joe and Jim Jones are just some of the rappers that will be featured.
“I’m excited to bring my spin on car customization to the MTV2 audience,” Flex said in a statement. “Over the years, updating whips has been a huge hobby of mine. But now viewers will get a real inside look at how my world comes together—Full Throttle. It’s the ultimate man-cave where anything and everything goes down. Some of the hottest names in hip-hop stop by to talk about cars, girls, music and we just kick it at my custom shop.”
Full Throttle is scheduled to premiere on May 2 at 2 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2.
