Lil Jon Is Back, "Okkkaaayyyeee...''
He speaks with MTV News...
Lil Jon has been away for a while and he’s only come back onto the music scene a few months ago with tracks alongside Tinchy Stryder and Jay Sean. More recently he has teamed up with electro/hip-hop group LMFAO on the track Shots and he is planning to make a major comeback in the charts this year.
Speaking to MTV News U.S, Lil Jon touched on why he’s been away for so long and why he wanted to become healthier this time around:
"I actually am glad [the album's] just now coming out, 'cause I got a chance to really let my batteries recharge. I was doing a lot of stuff, making a lot of records, doing a lot of albums and getting pulled in different directions. And you get burned out and need time to recharge and rejuvenate and come back. So it gave me time to go out and also get in the club and just DJ again. To feel the pulse of music and people all over the world, 'cause I went all the way to Australia and to Japan and all over America, from Vegas to New York to Miami; I'm DJing every week, basically."
He added: “All of that helped me to have an eye and be a little bit ahead of everyone else.’Cause the pulse of music is in the club. If you don't go to the club, you can't know where to go next or what's going on. I think everything helped give me time to open my eyes again. We getting older, man, so I started thinking and realizing you got to get in shape and get healthy. 'Cause we want to live longer lives. People are living longer lives, but only if you're eating healthy and living healthy. I do a lot of drinking [still], so I was like, 'I need to get my body right!' "
