Lil Jon Makes Crunk Rock

People wondered what happened to Lil Jon after "Snap Yo Fingers" dropped. Now Jon tells the story of his little spat with TVT and his upcoming Crunk Rock album.

Lil Jon fans were pleased when Snap Yo Fingers was released.The song, which followed a recent trend of "snap music" became a mainstream hit. Then came the confusion. Lil Jon didn't follow up that successful track with an album.
Why not?
dropped 'Snap Yo Fingers' because I was going through the drama with
TVT Records, and I wanted to show people that I didn't go anywhere,"
Lil Jon recently told Billboard.
"TVT and I eventually settled our differences. So I was caught between
a rock and a hard place, because it was really the first single for
'Crunk Rock.' So it was either promote the record for a nice look in
the marketplace, or we don't do anything and start from scratch when I
do put my record out."
Now, the producer and his various guests are in the lab, putting together material for
his forthcoming Crunk Rock album.
"It's not a compilation," he explains. "But
it'll have a lot of appearances, like how Dr. Dre does his records.
There'll be a hip-hop side and a rock side. It's a mixture of all the
sh*t I've done. Like Run-D.M.C. rapping over a hard rock track, I'm
going to go back to some of those hard guitars over hip-hop beats. I
won't do a Metallica song, but I'll take a Metallica riff and put it
over a gangsta beat."

The album already looks to have guests such as Lil' Wayne, Ciara, Nate Dogg and Three 6 Mafia.
No release date has been finalized as of press time.
