Ludacris will be involved in MTV's reboot of Fear Factor, a TV show that challenged contestants by putting them through crazy stunts.

The Atlanta rhymer will be wearing two hats during the project, one as executive producer and one as host. Plus, according to Variety, Luda will bring some sort of musical component to the program, but it's not clear in what way.

If you're familiar with the original Fear Factor, hosted by Joe Rogan in the early aughts, then you know the contestants were made to eat all kinds of strange things, like insects and even worse. The reboot, however, will bypass that particular segment, and the challenges will be based on viral YouTube videos.

You can catch the first episode of the MTV show on Tuesday, May 30 at 10:00 p.m. EST.
