Lil Jon Records Single With ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Rockers
Although Atlanta’s King of Crunk, Meat Loaf and McGrath were all fired by The Donald, they still found time to unite one last time as Team Backbone and record ‘Stand in the Storm.’ The motivational rock song begins with a two-minute symphonic intro, then morphs into a shameless guitar anthem, with Lil Jon supplying his signature ad libs and a hilarious verse, announcing that he’s “sick like a meth addict.”
100 percent of the proceeds from the song will go to each individual member’s charity of choice. Jon’s portion of the proceeds will go towards The United Methodist Children’s Home of North Georgia, and McGrath’s to the Save the Music Foundation, with Meat Loaf’s The Painted Turtle and John Rich St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital rounding out the Team Backbone charities.
Lil Jon and Meat Loaf were both fired on the May 15 episode of ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ and McGrath was offed earlier in the season, while John Rich walked away the 2011 winner, beating out Marlee Matlin, and earning over $3 million for charity.
‘Standing in the Storm’ will be included on Meat Loaf’s forthcoming studio album ‘Hell in a Handbasket,’ and can be purchased/previewed on iTunes.
