Southern producer/rapper Lil Jon was spotted in New York City yesterday selling pizzas for a local Manhattan Italian restaurant.
Jon was one of many celebrity musicians serving pizzas in Midtown yesterday.
Meat Loaf, Lil Jon, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray and John Rich of country duo Big & Rich were among the celebrities selling pies at Famiglia's Pizza in downtown New York on Tuesday (Oct. 19). The stunt, which attracted a growing crowd of onlookers throughout the day, was part of a television shoot widely rumored to be for the upcoming season of Donald Trump's NBC reality franchise, "Celebrity Apprentice." Lil Jon, Busey and Rich stood outside the pizzeria and held up signs promoting the sale of the "celebrity" pizza, with the proceeds for each pie going to charity. (Billboard)
The rapper's pizza flipping was reportedly for the taping of "Celebrity Apprentice."
The taping of "The Celebrity Apprentice" officially began rolling on Tuesday, October 19 when the stars were out selling pizzas for charity. As usual, the very first task in the reality show is a battle of gender and it revolves around food. The show had previously assigned celebrities to sell hot dogs, cup cakes and burgers.
