Lil Jon Makes Crunk Rock

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?
 
"I 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 producerand his various guests arein 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.
