5 Rappers Who Can Take Paula Deen's Spot on Food Network

Paula Deen has gotten herself into some down home, southern deep shit. Last week it was exposed that she is okay with using the derogatory n-word and that was just one of the offensive things she said in a deposition. Last Friday she issued a struggle apology video that no one wanted to give a chance.

Deen has lost huge endorsements and Food Network decided not to renew the contract for her cooking show. Here are a few rappers who can take her spot.

5. Trick Daddy Miami's own was first seen cooking on television on an episode of MTV Cribs. America was welcomed into his home as he cooked and introduced some of us to what a conch fritter is. Trick Daddy also filmed a pilot for a cooking show in 2004 for MTV that never happened.

4. Mia X This southern belle hails from New Orleans where almost everything from the kitchen is incredible. No Limit Records's first lady was once a co-owner of a restaurant in New Orleans.
