The first single from the set is expected to be "What U Gon Do" featuring Lil' Scrappy. Other tracks include "One Night Stand" featuring Oobie, the Rick Rubin-produced "Why U F***ing With Me" and "Contract" featuring Trillville and Jazze Pha.
Ice Cube also guests on one version of "Roll Call," while Bad Brains and former Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee provide the grit for the track's "crunk rock" mix.
Lil Jon has burst into the national spotlight in the past year, thanks to his own hit "Get Low" plus production work and a guest spot on Usher's long-running No. 1 smash, "Yeah!" His signature yelps ("Yeah!," "Okay!" and "What?") have established a mainstream presence of their own thanks to frequent parodies by comedian Dave Chappelle on "Chappelle's Show."
The new album is the follow-up to 2002's "Kings of Crunk," which peaked at No. 14 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 2.1 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
