New York rappers Fat Joe and Sean “Diddy” Combs are teaming up to create a new interview show for Starz.

The untiled series will be hosted by Fat Joe, known to fans as “Joey Crack,” and will be executive produced by Diddy and LeBron James through their media companies, Revolt Studios and SpringHill.

In a press release, Starz described the series as a genre-busting project that blends interviews with celebrities and high-profile guests with an elevated documentary style format.

“Time and time again, Fat Joe has delivered outstanding, insightful interviews with legendary personalities who define the zeitgeist, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Starz family,” said Kathryn Busby, president of Original Programming at Starz. “Fat Joe, Sean Combs and LeBron James are inspirational icons, and we can’t wait to get started on this incredible journey.”

Added Fat Joe, “We’re about to create the biggest and most culturally-relevant series on television. With Puff, LeBron, the incredible team at Starz and myself teaming up, you have a dream team that is guaranteed to produce TV gold.”

Diddy said the show will feature conversations that get people talking.

“Fat Joe is a very authentic and respected voice in the culture that deserves a platform to bring these important conversations to a global audience on a major network,” he said.

Fat Joe is no stranger to hosting. In March 2020, he launched The Fat Joe Show, a Instagram Live talk-show where he interviews politicians, musicians, athletes, actors, entrepreneurs and influential personalities such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Floyd Mayweather, Dwyane Wade, Jamie Foxx and Alicia Keys.

As previously reported, he also served as a guest host for The Wendy Williams Show.

Later this month, he is scheduled to host the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta.
