Akon obviously knows his scales being a musician, now his latest TV adventure sees the rapper get “Tanked” in Atlanta as he builds a fish tank for his dream home.
Animal Planet chose hip-hop star Akon to collaborate with their star reality series fish experts, Wayde King and Brett Raymer, to create a forshizzle fleek centerpiece aquarium to his new home.
In a strange moment, Akon shows off his presidential rug as he gives the guys a tour of the mixing board and studio.
And this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the Tanked guys, but when Brett says “I got a little fish tank rap” Akon looks horrified!
Brett goes on, “The Blue Tank Clan…I’m B Love and this is Big Daddy King,” Akon falls out laughing while Wade looks mortified.
“Y’all is crazy,” says Akon. “I’m gonna set you up.” The guys also get a chance to record a song inside Akon’s plush recording studio.
Akon will get two cylindrical tanks for his new centerpiece aquarium – but what fish does he pick?
Akon wants one tank to have his heritage from Africa, while the other tank will show off his Caribbean roots.
The guys soon learn hip hop may LOOK easy, but Big Daddy King and B Love’s attempts to rap are as palatable as stinky fish food.
Akon’s Tanked episode airs tonight at 10pm on Animal Planet.
