    after hearing him on the Diplo comp and the DJ Snake track, I'm convinced Lil Jon has found his niche in screaming over EDM tracks. He needs to put out a whole album of this stuff, he'd be as big as he was 10 years ago, and also cement his place in history as sort of a rap david bowie, staying on the avant-garde throughout his career

    He keeps on saying "nigger", "motherfucking" and "shit" all the time - does it mean the lyrics are racist?
