Nick Cannon has yet another project in the works and this time around he’s recruited the help of two Hip Hop veterans.

According to Bossip, Cannon will be producing a new crime series titled The Yay Area. Helping the actor/rapper on the production end will be E-40 and Too Short, two artists who hail from Oakland, California.

Given the socio-political climate present in today’s society, Cannon reportedly wants to capitalize on the timing of The Yay Area.

The Yay Area will take on social and political topics involving the Bay Area’s drug culture, biker gang, and the Black Panthers.

News of the television show comes as Cannon is on the road for his Wild’N Out Tour, which is scheduled to hit cities across the U.S. all the way through November.

Pre-production For The Yay Area is set to begin sometime this fall.
