--'''Lil Jon''', regarding everything

The TropeCodifier for "{{Crunk}}" HipHop, '''Lil' Jon''' (real name '''Jonathan Smith''', born January 17, 1971) is the LargeHam of the hip-hop world. He has had several hits, most notably "Get Low", "Turn Down for What" and his appearance on Music/{{Usher}}'s "Yeah!".
!!Tropes that apply to Lil Jon:
* ''[[BigWhat WHAT?!!!!!]]''
* BodyHorror: A mild version in the video for "Turn Down For What", where people's body parts seem to be dictating their owners' dancing - and it's infectious.
* CatchPhrase: ''YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH-UUUUUUUHHHHHHHH'' on practically every song he's ever been on, ''ever''. Though, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDBi4uO89us some of his earlier songs]] aren't much like what people expect from him today.
** WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lIyTunP_go&feature=channel even speculated]] on a Lil Jon appearance in a ballet ("YEAH [[Theatre/SwanLake SWAN LAKE]]")
* {{Bowdlerisation}}: Many of the clean versions of his songs sound like instrumentals.
* ClusterFBomb[=/=]SirSwearsALot: No fucking kidding. His song "Real Nigga Roll Call" is said to contain more swear words than any other single ever released, and its chorus contains more words that had to be removed in the clean version than words that were allowed to stay.
* DestructoNookie: The "Turn Down for What" music video.
* LargeHam: Quite possibly the largest ham in rap.
* NoIndoorVoice: Dare we say a TropeCodifier for hip-hop?
* NWordPrivileges: Takes it UpToEleven.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Safe to say, almost every song he's involved with.
* RapMetal: "Stop Fuckin' Wit Me".
* {{Sampling}}: "Stop Fuckin' Wit Me" was put together by Music/RickRubin entirely with guitar riffs from Music/{{Slayer}} recordings that Rubin produced.
* SequelSong: Worked with Creator/ChrisRock on Rock's album Never Scared for "Get Lower".
