Act Sundays featured Lil Jon at Uniun in Toronto
Famous rapper turned DJ, Lil Jon, stopped by Toronto’s Uniun nightclub to give the city a little taste of his ones and twos, instead of dropping verses and hooks. Though – his trademark vocals could still be heard resonating across the club.
It’s been a whirlwind year for Lil Jon – his album Turn Down for WhatI? it went double platinum in Canada and triple platinum in the U.S.
Lil Jon is travelling the globe in support of the new album as a disc jockey instead of his usual MO as a rapper. He’s out there showing people that there is more to him than just his rap skills.
During his recent trip to Toronto he was doing triple duty, promoting his latest movie 99 Homes, which premiered at T.I.F.F which stars Laura Dern, Michael Shannon, and Andrew Garfield. After that he did a gauntlet of press for Turn Down for What? while showcasing his latest single “Bend Ova” and lastly he was booked to spin at Uniun Nightclub.
Lil Jon said “I’m the guy that is most often identified with partying and party music. The good Lord put some people on this planet to teach, some people to preach, I think the lord put me here to make people forget about their problems and have a good time.” “People tend to look at hip hop artists as not that intelligent, and one thing i think i showed during celebrity apprentice is we can compete at a very high level.”
