Atlanta rap star Gucci Mane just signed on with BET for a new reality show with his fiance Keyshia Ka'oir.
Carlos King, who had previously been involved in "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," is involved as an executive producer. BET has not come up with an official name yet for the show or a particular launch date.
Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Delantic Davis, has been recording for 16 years but only had his first No. 1 single with "Black Beatles" last year on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He's also had his fair share of legal and criminal issues.
UPDATE on June 7: TMZ reports their salaries and the fact BET will cover the cost of the wedding, estimated to be $1 million.
According to the website: "the rapper and his longtime girl landed a $650k contract with BET for a reality show leading up to their nuptials -- $400k for him and $250k for her."
