Soon after leaving the now-defunct TVT Records, Lil’ Jon signed a multifaceted deal with Universal Republic. In addition to serving as an A&R and talent scout, the King of Crunk finally has a new label home to release the long-delayed Crunk Rock (due out later this year). On a newly-released track (which may or may not appear on the forthcoming album) Jon gives a shout-out to Killas nationwide. The Game rides off the momentum of Jon’s breakneck contribution before segueing into Ice Cube‘s verse, on which he addresses the double-standards outsiders hold in regard to rap, even taking a swipe at emcees who refuse to use vulgarities. Put all that together with a chugging electric-guitar beat, and you’ve got the archetypical Lil’ Jon record – hard, fast, and sure to get the crowd moving.
