The cover art to Lil Jon's forthcoming Crunk Rock album has been revealed.
The producer's art work takes a patriotic approach with iconic colors but does not feature Jon on the cover.
Lil Jon goes international on the red, white, and blue spray-painted cover ofCrunk Rock, his oft-delayed solo debut album, for which he's collaborated with Ice Cube, R. Kelly, Game, Soulja Boy, Pitbull, Swizz Beatz, and more. The King of Crunk goes from the Atlanta hip-hop scene to the Ibiza dance clubs on June 8. (Rap-Up)
According to Jon, he has packed his long-awaited album with different genres of music.
"Because there's so many different kinds of Lil Jons that's on this album that it's not just rock and roll," he added. "You got some rock kind of collaborations, but you got some electro collaborations, you got crunk music, you got dance music, you got all kinds of stuff, Bali funk. We got so many different kinds of collaborations on the album that it changed really into a lifestyle. We live like this." (MTV)
With help from artists like Game and R. Kelly, Jon's album is set to come out this June.
"I'm finally ready to get Crunk Rock out there to my people!! It's been a long time comin' and the album has somethin' for everyone on it," he wrote in a statement earlier this year. "I gave them every kind of Lil Jon that they have ever heard on an album...I can't wait for da' people to hear it!!!" (Hip Hop Press)
He recently said the project would reflect his recent experience on the road as a deejay.
"Eventually TVT folded and I got off the label," Jon explained in an interview. "I got signed to Universal Republic about a year ago and I went back to the studio and started working on the album again and I had a whole new energy, new vibe, from being on the road deejaying and just from taking some time off, clearing my mind. So now I'm done, we're officially ready. It's not like, 'We're almost done,' I'm just working on like one or the last two songsbut all of my vocals are done except for one song. [It's still called]Crunk Rock." (DJ Ekin)
Crunk Rock is scheduled to drop Tuesday, June 8th.
