    LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 28: Rappers DJ Paul (left) and Juicy J of the group Three 6 Mafia arrive at the 2009 BET Awards.

    If you've been holding your breath for reality television that combines the art of cooking and mainstream hip hop, it's almost time to exhale.

    Grammy Award-winning rap group Three 6 Mafia is developing a comedy cooking show cleverly titled "Cookin' Ain't Easy," a take on the 1980's hip hop classic "Pimpin' Ain't Easy."

    The show would feature group members DJ Paul and Juicy J as they prepare Italian, Asian and Mexican dishes while hosting celebrity guests, close friends and fans at their Hollywood mansion.

    The two "chefs" have also enlisted Survivor producer Adam Briles to help pitch the idea to networks.
