HipHopWired Featured Video

Apparently, Lil Jon said to hell with crunk and is embracing club music for his next album, Party Animal. The “Get Low” rapper/producer/hypeman/DJ debuted the video for “Drink,” featuring LMFAO, today, via the Huffington Post no less.

The video finds the AARP set breaking out liquor bottles and red Solo cups when their nursing home orderly goes on a five minute break. “I think it makes them seem cool as hell,” Jon told the Huff Post of the grandmas and grandpas in his new video. “They were initially reserved, but then they were having the time of their lives. They weren’t really drinking, but I think it shows people like to get a little bit crazy in their elder years.”

Raise your hand if you knew Lil Jon had an album on the way. Well now you do. Last year, he did tell Rolling Stone that Party Animal will find him working with a number of club DJ’s to create music that “just makes [people] want to dance and have a good time and live life.”

Word. But does the mean the Eastside Boyz are unemployed right now? Watch the Ballard C. Boyd directed clip for “Drink” below.
