Pitbull Comes To The Small Screen, Brings Along Jim Jones & Christina Milian For TV Series

 Miami bred rapper Pitbull will serve as the host of a reality humor series set to premiere in May for the bilingual Latino network, mun2.

The series, titled "Pitbull's La Esquina," will be eight half hour episodes shot at the legendary Miami corner La Esquina, where the rapper and his friend/personal barber The Fademaster will entertain various celebrities and discuss important issues ranging from immigration to dating, family, stereotypes and music.

Hip-Hop celebrities slated to appear on the show include Akon, Fat Joe, Rick Ross, Christina Milian, Jim Jones, Chingo Bling, Bun-B and Cool and Dre, among others.

Highlight clips of the show will be available on mun2's website, holamun2.com. Each episode of "Pitbull's La Esquina" will be available on itunes the following Monday after it airs.

"mun2 was the first to give me an outlet for my music when it wasn't as accepted as it is today," Pitbull said via a statement. "So, it's great to now come full circle and be back home at a place that supported me then. The overall feel of the show is funny, but my message is serious. It's time for us to tackle important matters affecting our community on our terms-in a way that's real, but also fun."

Pitbull, who recently made headlines after being the center of a 9.1 million lawsuit involving his former label Slip-N-Slide Records, is currently working on his third album entitled Boatlift.

"Pitbull's La Esquina" airs on mun2 on May 9.
