Friday, April 11, 2014

Notice the mention of TWERK in 2003...

Lil' Jon is making an appearance in Seattle on May 16th thanks to Stardust Events and if you are anywhere close to Showbox SoDo you need to be there. If somehow you have managed to escape the "Turntness" that is Turn Down For What, that is truly impressive. That song is literally everywhere. TD4W is the current mantra for anyone 16-30 and it is supremely iconic that Jon has be such a powerhouse in music for so long. Keep in mind he is a producer, writer, and DJ while the title of rapper becomes a secondary title to the many thrones he sits upon. Mainly the King of Crunk and now the King of Rage/Turn Up/Party ETC...


If you missed DJ Snake at Lucky 2o14 then now is your time to see 1/2 of the originator of the #TD4W movement. If you are so oblivious to that song that it's not ringing in your head right now...just stop.
