Crunkmeister Lil' Jon Deejays At Sutra Lounge
Ghetto rap auteur Lil' Jon is holding his CD release party at Sutra Lounge tonight for his new album Crunk Rock. He's performing a live DJ set--no electric guitar crossover, unfortunately--but you will be able to herald the coming of his album with him at midnight.
Although it's been six years since Lil' Jon's Crunk Juice sold 2.5 million copies (he went on hiatus after a dispute with his record label), Lil' Jon is confident that touring and DJing has honed his skills and energy.
According to Reuters, "The album features production from Drumma Boy, DJ Chuckie, Dr. Luke and Lil Jon. Guest appearances include Soulja Boy Tell'Em, Stephen and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Ice Cube, Game, Elephant Man, R. Kelly, Mario, Pitbull, LMFAO and 3OH!3."
It's supposed to be a genre-buster--much like Lil' Jon's life. Here's a few things I never knew before: Like every other rapper these days, Lil' Jon has a reality show in the works, has his own wine and is the force behind the Crunk Energy Drink.
