Oft-imitated king of crunk Lil Jon will guest-DJ at Mansion this Friday for the weekly We Rock Hip Hop party. You'll get a taste of the crunk juice that's made the performer one of the most sought-after collaborators in the biz. He'll be behind the decks, alongside resident DJs Ideal and Affect, so think of your pimp chalice as half-full.
A mouthpiece of Hotlanta's Dirty South hip-hop, Lil Jon does his best work out of the spotlight, though, with more gold and platinum to his name than Scrooge McDuck. His new album, Crunk Rock, features Soulja Boy, LMFAO (yes, of "I'm in Miami Bitch"), Ice Cube, R. Kelly, Pitbull, and 3OH!3. You don't have to be sipping the crunk juice to know how big that's going to blow up.
