Having starred in the hilarious 2007 MTV series ‘Adventures in Hollyhood,’ Academy Award-winning rappers Three 6 Mafia have been plotting a return to reality television for several years. Now, it looks like their time has finally arrived.

On VH1’s new reality series ‘Famous Food,’ DJ Paul and Juicy J will join a cast of pseudo-celebs — including former ‘Hill’s star Heidi Montag, former ‘Soprano’s actor Vincent Pastore, Albany’s favorite prostitute Ashley Dupre and Jake Pavelka of ‘The Bachelor’ — in an attempt to launch a Los Angeles restaurant called Famous Food. At the end of the eight-week challenge, the contestant who proves most valuable in planning, marketing, staffing and opening the new eatery will win a stake in the restaurant.

Back in 2009, the Memphis, Tenn. rappers were shopping an oddball cooking show, ‘Cookin’ Ain’t Easy!’ with ‘Survivor’ producer Adam Briles, which was unfortunately never picked up.

“We’re cooking all different types of food,” Juicy J said at the time. “We’re cooking Indian food, we’re cooking Italian food, we’re cooking Asian food, we’re cooking Mexican food, we’re cooking all different kinds of foods that people wouldn’t think we could cook. It’s a comedy, it’s funny, and I think you’re going to love it.”

The 10-episode series ‘Famous Food’ will debut this fall.
