Pro basketball player turned rapper Ron Artest (yeah, he really is trying out this rap thing!) has landed his own reality show that will document his life.
The Los Angeles Lakers’ star forward’s show is titled “They Call Me Crazy” and will feature Artest making amends for his past transgressions, including a controversial 2004 brawl with fans during a Pistons-Pacer game.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will also feature Artest seeking new Hip-Hop talent for his recorded label, Tru Warier.
The same company this is distributing Faith Evans’ new reality show It’s All About Faith is developing They Call Me Crazy.
“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to invite people into my world to see the real me, and show them there are many more sides to the Ron Artest they see on the basketball court,” Artest said in a statement “This show will allow me to share my experiences with others, and hopefully people can learn from the mistakes I’ve made.”
An air date was not available as of press time.
Well got dammit, is everyone getting a reality show these days? Geez! We gotta admit, anything with Ron Artest showing the “real Ron Artest” on TV has us interested. Dude is a mess! Haha…
