Lil Jon Talks Extensively to TMZ, Rocks Amazing Mishka Sweater, Plays WMC

Lil Jon recently sat down with TMZ for about a half-hour-long interview as part of the site's ongoing video interview series, TMZ Live. In it, he discusses Weezy's upcoming jail sentence, why he hasn't worked with Justin Bieber, and why fans should stop screaming "Yeah!" and "Okay!" at him in public. (Sorry, but I think he dug his own grave on that last part -- hey, at least he has a catchphrases even our parents recognize!) 

I'm not the biggest fan of this spot; Jon comes off smart and chilled out, as he does in real life, but it looks like the breathless host was expecting Lil Jon, the character. I know it's the format of TMZ Live to talk about random stuff, but in this case it never seems to go anywhere. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. In any event, what I am a big fan of here is Jon's amazing sweater, showing a three-eyed cat coming out of a top hat. It's Mishka NYC's Bad Luck sweater, which you can current;y cop at a sale price on the company's web site. Funnily enough, it looks like Lil Jon has similar clothing taste to Neon Indian -- but hey, who doesn't like a cat sweater?

In other Lil Jon news, with his increasing love of dance music, he's performing at one of the biggest WMC opening parties, the annual Welcome to Miami event at Nikki Beach, this year on Wednesday, March 24. The Beach Stage, where he plays, features huge-room names like Donald Glaude, Tom Novy, and Tocadisco. Meanwhile, the Flying Circus party-within-a-party brings more stuff for the music snobs, like Heidi, Audiofly, and Davide Squillace. Don't miss this one. Tickets are still on sale for $25 in advance from
