Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz - "CRUNK JUICE" Album Lyrics

Lil Jon's Album

Crunk Juice Lyrics

Crunk Juice cover Crunk is war, and Lil Jon is its Alexander. During the past five years, he's slowly injected mainstream hip-hop with his distinct brand of sonic terror; with crunk, mayhem is its own reward. Crunk Juice is Jon's fourth album and his first since emerging from behind the boards as a star in his own right (with assists to Dave Chappelle and Usher). For the most part, Juice is pure nihilism -- vacuous, raucous chants over militaristic synths and machine-gun drums. Jon was raised on a diet of hardcore and punk as well as hip-hop, and more than any other rap producer, he understands the raw power of the guitar: "Don't Fuck Wit Me," a bizarre, uncomfortable incitement to domestic violence in the working-class home, could pass for a Suicidal Tendencies outtake. Jon doesn't get much credit for his range as a producer: "Aww Skeet Skeet," featuring DJ Flexx, is an utterly convincing go-go track. And "Lovers and Friends" -- which lifts from Mary J. Blige's "Everything" -- is a liquid love song any R&B thug would be grateful to have on his album.

Jon and his East Side Boyz aren't much as far as rapping is concerned -- they're more cheerleaders than MCs. To Jon's credit, he understands his shortcomings, closing the Crunk Juice with the outstanding "Grand Finale," featuring Nas, Bun B, T.I. and Ice Cube -- talented rappers who prove that you can do more to Jon's music than mosh.
