Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter


TheCity_Lil_jon_March_31_2015Jonathan Smith, more commonly known as Lil Jon, is an American Rapper, Producer, and DJ from Atlanta, GA.  He has been a force in all aspects of the music world, being a pioneer in the style of hip-hop called “crunk”, and has even dabbled in the entertainment industry making appearances in television shows and movies.

I am sure most of you remember the tragic days of middle school and the denim skirt with leggings and Uggs outfit than ran rampant at the middle school dances; but when you hear the song “Yeah!” by Usher, what comes to mind?  You would be lying if you didn’t say middle school dances.  Lil Jon, in collaboration with Usher, was the producer of the hit single and received a Grammy Award for the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2005.

Over the next decade, Lil Jon worked with various artists, such as The Ying Yang Twins, Youngbloodz, David Guetta, Usher, Ludacris, Pitbull, and many more, to produce hit singles and released his own rock music album, Crunk Rock.

In 2014, Lil Jon collaborated with DJ Snake to release “Turn Down for What” which was a huge hit on Spring Break last year!  The single peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has since been gone on to be certified 3x Platinum by the RIAA.

Lil Jon currently continues to work as a DJ and is a co-owner of the record label Black Market Entertainment.  Lil Jon and his wife, Nicole, have a son who is hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps and is an aspiring DJ and actor.  The award winning artist has had quite the career and is nowhere near stopping any time soon.  Bringing Spring Break 2015 to a close, Lil Jon will be performing in Cancun for Inception Music Festival!
