But how does that translate musically? Well, it's not some lame rap-rock hybrid. In fact, the album has been so long delayed - for several years now - that its current iteration has little to do with a literal interpretation of the title. Lil Jon, it seems, has become enamored with the dance music influence seeping into every current radio hit. Influenced by the likes of DJ Chuckie and David Guetta, the new tracks are often synth-heavy, uptempo house punctuated with rap verses and R&B hooks. The disc is finally due out on June 8 from Universal Republic, and in an unusual booking for the hipster-ish Dirty Hairy party, will air out some new tracks from it next Wednesday at LIV.
Lil Jon. 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 3. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Call for admission information. Age 21 and up; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com
