It’s been 5 years since Lil Jon gave fans an album. 2004’s Crunk Juice came out on the Top 200 at #3, and prompted the singles “What U Gon’ Do” and “Real Nigga Roll Call.” The onetime So So Def DJ also enlisted production assistance from Rick Rubin, as well as a guest-list that included Nas, Ice Cube and Suga Free to what remains one of the few platinum independent Rap albums of the decade.

In the six years since, some could argue that Jon has quietly left. As his former label collapsed, the self-proclaimed King Of Crunk became label-mates with Chamillionaire and Drake at Universal Republic, and produced hits for E-40, Amerie, Pitbull and Baby Bash.

This afternoon, it was announced that after the lengthy hiatus, Jon’s long-discussed, but never-released Crunk Rock will be brought to fans June 8th. Morever, Jon & The East Side Boyz’ 7th career album features Game, Pitbull, R. Kelly, Elephant Man, LMFAO, Soulja Boy and others.

“I’m finally ready to get Crunk Rock out there to my people,” said Lil Jon. “It’s been a long time comin’ and the album has somethin’ for everyone on it.” Jon continued, “I gave them every kind of Lil Jon that they have ever heard on an album. From the Crunk shit, to R&B, to House, Electro and Rock… The album is on a whole other level… I can’t wait for da’ people to hear it!”
