Hip hop reality shows usually fall into two different categories. Either they are wack or you watch because you are a fan of the host of the show.
Three 6 Mafia's reality series, "Adventures in Hollyhood," which premieres Thursday (April 5) on MTV at 10 p.m. eastern time, shows a unique side of the Three 6 Mafia camp and gave me a new attitude toward this Academy Award winning hip hop group.
Not being a big fan of ‘crunk’ type hip hop music really blurred my look at this group. "Adventures in Hollyhood" is a show that I feel will let others have a new look at these dudes and the people they surround their self with. Being afforded a ‘sneak’ view of the first show has me ‘hooked’ and looking forward to more from this show.
The first show opens with Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul and Juicy J and their camp; consisting of protégé Project Pat, personal assistant Big Triece and assistant Computer, heading toward California in a Rolls Royce. I am not sure of the route they took, but in my hood a double RR full of hip hop artists would certainly be pulled over every other block and just when you are thinking that – the police knock on the window of the double RR - not to harass the group but to give them a police escort – now that’s ‘Gangsta’.
Once the hip hop crew arrives in Cali they find out that really "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp". We get to see them in the studio, inter acting with their neighbors and get a good look of this crew in the real, and it is something some of these reality shows aren’t – it is humorous and makes think it would be cool to hang with these dudes for a bit.
One highlight of this show may be Juicy J’s father. He is a preacher and offers advice and direction for the crew. It is good to see family involved in the life of hip hop artists and it is good to see they listen, and you can tell they have and show respect for him. I hope we get to see a lot more of him during up coming shows.
This is one reality show that MTV got right. Make sure you check it out "Adventures in Hollyhood," which premieres Thursday (April 5) on MTV at 10 p.m. eastern time.
