For The Record: Lil Jon [Video]

Lil Jon is a legend.

Genius’ Rob Markman speaks with the G.O.A.T about the strenuous process of producing Mac Dre vocals posthumously, the backstory of “Goodies,” “Yeah,” and “Turn Down 4 What,” his history with Too Short & E-40, and the mystery of the Jay-Z song produced by Rick Rubin featuring Chris Rock and Jon.

Grammy-winning producer and artist Lil Jon is best-known for ushering crunk music into the mainstream during the early 2000s. After producing hits for artists like Usher, Pitbull, Ciara, and Ying Yang Twins, the Atlanta native remains relevant to this day. On the latest episode of ‘For The Record,’ Genius’ Head of Artist Relations Rob Markman recently sat down with Lil Jon to talk about his latest collaboration, “Ain’t No Tellin’,” with the late Mac Dre, as well as share the stories behind some of his biggest hits.
