Whether he knew it or not (he probably didn't), Lil Jon was always generally associated with Diplo's Hollertronix parties, not only because the music he was producing was ubiquitous at parties during that time, but also because Lil Jon's balls-to-the-wall Crunk movement seemed to match up perfectly with the whole Hollertronix aesthetic. Years later, the two have finally spent some time together in the studio and the resulting product is "U Don't Like Me," which takes classic southern fight-rap and mixes it with some gnarly dubstep sounds. The two styles go together so well it's hard to believe we haven't heard more of this before. Dancehall collective South Rakkas Crew give the track a rock-n-roll makeover that brings to mind Trick Daddy's "Let's Go," which was, of course, produced by Lil Jon. You also get the instrumental and acapella here, making it four tracks in all. Pic disc with artwork by Mike Jones. Recommended.
