Lil Jon - Work
It’s been a minute since Lil Jon‘s hoarse ad-libs and bass-booming beats last graced our pages; though he made an appearance on will.i.am‘s Reach for the Stars last summer, the Crunk King’s hasn’t been featured on the solo tip since bringing us Miss Hot Chocolate back in February of 2010. Today, the ATLien makes his long-awaited return to our pages with a freshly-released promo single. Work is a stripped-down banger designed for the express purpose of getting bodies moving. Over his own sparse boardwork, a syncopated percussion rhythm which morphs into a military tattoo on the bridge, Jon urges the ladies in the house to shake what God gave ‘em. Does Work have the makings of a club hit? As always, y’all get to lay down the final verdict. This joint isn’t attached to a forthcoming project, but we’ll keep you posted on Lil Jon’s plans in the weeks and months ahead.
