    Hello Family!

    This man make hot beats, has people :jumping:, gets crunked :dance:, and makes other people's songs hot. All he needs is the right beat, and the song is off the chain:jump:. 'Get Low' is about 2-3 years old, and it is still hot. But back to my point. All the Eastside Boyz do in most of the videos is get crunked just like the crowd in the Videos. Normally I never watch BET, but I was flipping through channels and happened to see him doing another video, and the beat was hot like usual.

    No Disrespect to Lil Jon, TVT Records, or the Eastside Boyz, but I think he would be fine by myself. What do you think?

    By the way, he is supposed to release another album, and I heard it is supposed to be off the hook! :dj:

    Thank you Brother Kente417Mojo!

    Lil' Jon ain't doing nothing but makin club beats that are now accepted by the mainstream radio heads. There is enough noise (music) out there right now. Lil' Jon isn't doing anything to revolutionize or excel Hip Hop. After he get a good 5 years in the industry (TV play and radio play) he'll drop off quickly like many before him did.

    Being from the South I know that the music he's making ain't nothing new. The stuff I've heard coming from him has been played in Florida and Georgia for at least 7-10 years.

    Before we get too deep yall.

    Well for one we must undersand two things:

    1. Lil Jon makes Rap Music and beats for Rappers and Singers. He is not a hip-hop artist.

    2. Lil Jon has proven commerical success which means he will be around for a while, no one wants to hear Bahamadia or Large Professor nor IM3 in the club.

    It is sad but true. Good music does not sell and we can blame MTV and video age for that.

    Music is no longer an art form, it is merely a fashion show with noise (music) in the background.

    But also Lil Jon really do not need the East Side Boyz. I think they are just his homeboys from back in the day.

    Mansiac, you just had to make me laugh again!!

    Do you think they get any of the money that he makes?

    Lil Jon is not even close to Hip-Hop. He is not a rapper with lyrics.

    But the reason I listen to him is because his beats are not just for clubs. It is more than crunk music. Football teams and other sports teams listen to his beats to get hyped up and ready for sports competition. I don't see anything wrong with that. And with all the attention he gets up in the clubs, I certainly think he will be around for a while. You will have to eliminate all the Hip-Hop clubs before you get rid of him. Other rappers from around the country use him to get up on the charts, and that will keep him doing his beats. I would not be surprised if Usher got up on the charts with "Yeah!" because of the beat. That is all I need out of Lil Jon is the beat. Why do you want to listen to the lyrics? All he does most of the time in a song is repeat the same thing!

    But his beats are not, they get radio station's attention, and that will last for a while longer.

    The eastside boyz could be his sound engineers, or be behind the scenes music folks, like ya boy Slim from Cash Money.
