Lil Jon with Mayhem, DJ Miraj, Booker

When: Fri., June 13, 9 p.m. 2014

Sometimes the weirdest things have longevity in the music industry; Lil Jon might be one of the finest examples. The Atlanta rapper and DJ rose to popularity on the international stage as the guy who basically just shouted “YEAH!” and “OKAY!” in Usher songs. No, seriously. The man has been rolling in it ever since. The glittery-grilled yell-rapper has proven to have quite the business acumen: starting a “Zumba Nightclub” series and pairing with some of the finest DJs in the biz to keep his songs on trend. Last year, Jon released the excellent crowd-bumping track “Turn Down for What” with DJ Snake — a song that not only proves the man can seriously rock a dance floor, but has one of the best music videos of all time.
