“Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why, Bone Crusher is coming to town!”
Don’t be surprised if you hear kids and adults singing those lines or something similar as we approach the Christmas season. The King of Crunk himself, Lil Jon, is producing a Christmas album, for which he’s calling on some of his fellow rowdy Southerners, like Bone, to give their own crunk interpretations of some beloved Yuletide songs.
Jon’s rep said he’s locking himself in the studio so he can have the LP, titled Crunk Christmas, in stores on December 9. David Banner, 8Ball and MJG, the Ying Yang Twins, Killer Mike, T.I. and Three 6 Mafia are all contributing to the album.
On November 25, Jon will put out a DVD/CD called “Part II.” The CD features a merengue remix of Jon and the East Side Boyz’s “Get Low” and another version of the cut where Busta Rhymes and Elephant Man co-star (see “Lil Jon Gets Help From Nelly, Busta For ’Get Low’ Remixes” ). Jon is currently in talks with Justin Timberlake and Nelly for yet another revamping of “Get Low.” The yelling party-starter did get Roy Jones Jr., Chyna Whyte, Jadakiss and Petey Pablo for a remix of “Put Yo Hood Up” for the CD, and he’s working on two new cuts for inclusion as well.
The DVD portion of “Part II” takes a look into Jon and his Boyz’s always-crunk life, from the stage to the studio to behind closed doors.
