Back in 2013, Lil Jon famously pushed back against the very idea of meditation with his hit song “Turn Down for What,” but the King of Crunk has changed his tune. According to TMZ, the rapper plans to drop a guided meditation album on February 16th.
Reportedly clocking in at 10 tracks, the project is described in TMZ’s report as “truthful” to Lil Jon’s personal life, in which he has focused on fitness and wellness of late. It’s worth noting that the artist seemed to confirm the report by posting a link to the article in his Instagram Stories and retweeting subsequent coverage.
Though Lil Jon is best known for hyping up fans with songs like “Get Low,” “Salt Shaker,” and “Snap Yo Fingers,” he does have lyrics like, “Bend over to the front, touch your toes” that could actually translate over to his newfound direction.
Plus, a quick glance at Lil Jon’s Instagram shows that he linked up with André 3000 back in 2022 — ahead of the latter’s new age and ambient album. Perhaps that’s where he got the inspiration to record something different.
News of Lil Jon’s meditation album comes ahead of Usher’s Super Bowl Halftime Show this Sunday, where Lil Jon is expected to help the singer light up the stage with a performance of their No. 1 hit, “Yeah!”
