Lil Jon to perform at Nasimi

Grammy-winning rapper-producer Lil Jon will bring his special brand of ‘crunk’ madness to Nasimi Beach next month.

The ‘Nasimi Rocks’ show will take place on Thursday, September 13 at the pool venue in Atlantis, The Palm. Also performing at the concert (6pm to 2am) will be DJs Teddy Jam, Ray and more.

Lil Jon is known for pioneering the hip-hop genre crunk, appearing on the breakout hit Get Low in 2003. The following year he collaborated with Usher and Ludacris for the international number one smash Yeah, and his other US top 10 hits include Salt Shaker, Let’s Go and Do You Remember.

Also a prolific producer for the likes of Snoop Dogg, Pitbull and T.I., Lil Jon (born Jonathan Smith) has appeared in films such as Scary Movie 4 and had an impressive run on last year’s Celebrity Apprentice.

Comedy fans will also know the star from classic sketch series Chappelle’s Show, where Dave Chappelle affectionately lampooned his shouty and monosyllabic catchphrases.
