Mariah Carey, Snoop Get Crunk With Lil Jon
We’re not sure if she can scream “Yeah!” in her trademark multi-octave range yet, but we can’t wait to find out. Mariah Carey is just one of many artists scheduled to appear on Lil Jon’s upcoming disc, ‘Crunk Rock.’
Jon tells AOL Music that while he’s only a month into recording, he’s already worked with Jermaine Dupri on a track that will feature the newly emancipated Mimi. Other special guests on the album include R. Kelly, Sean Paul of Youngbloodz and Snoop Dogg.
While everyone else is jumping on ATL’s somewhat mellow “snap” music craze, Jon is staying true to the rambunctious flow that made him famous.
“‘Crunk Rock’ is gonna be what everybody knows and loves me for, as well as me dabbling into rock collaborations,” he said. “I’m takin’ it back to Run-DMC in the early days, where they had rock guitars over hip hop beats.”
Since JD already locked down one comeback queen, any chance his girlfriend, Janet “Miss-Jackson-If-You’re Nasty,” might step in the booth?
“Wishful thinking,” Jon said. Damn.
