"I dropped 'Snap Yo Fingers' because I was going through the drama with TVT Records, and I wanted to show people that I didn't go anywhere," Lil Jon tells Billboard. "TVT and I eventually settled our differences. So I was caught between a rock and a hard place, because it was really the first single for 'Crunk Rock.' So it was either promote the record for a nice look in the marketplace, or we don't do anything and start from scratch when I do put my record out."
"It's not a compilation," Jon says. "But it'll have a lot of appearances, like how Dr. Dre does his records. There'll be a hip-hop side and a rock side. It's a mixture of all the sh*t I've done. Like Run-D.M.C. rapping over a hard rock track, I'm going to go back to some of those hard guitars over hip-hop beats. I won't do a Metallica song, but I'll take a Metallica riff and put it over a gangsta beat."
A few tracks that have already been recorded are "Lil' Wayne and Ciara on a song together called 'Roll Call,' me and Three 6 Mafia [on a song] called 'Act a Fool,' me and R. Kelly on a song called 'Myspace,' and Nate Dogg has a song too but I don't know what that's called yet," Jon says.
"Act a Fool" has already appeared on Lil Jon's MySpace site. "It had almost 500,000-600,000 hits in like 24 hours and the song is building in the clubs," he enthuses.
