Lil Jon Tries Soca

The superstar rapper and producer Johnathan Smith aka Lil Jon & "King of Crunk" who started out his musical career as a dancehall DJ with the Four Season's Sound System of the 1990's in Atlanta, is now creating a soca beat for this year's Carnival festival in Trinidad. Though he will not be performing, he will produce a beat for a collaboration between himself, Latin hip hop star Pitbull and soca artist Machel Montano called "Floor on Fire".

The track has evolved into a full fledged riddim including many Caribbean voices such as Kevin Lyttle and Mr. Vegas and will debut at this year's Carnival in Trinidad.
Jon, has in the past displayed a flair for island beats by appearing alongside Pitbull and Machel Montano at soca's Crop Over festival in Barbados.
